HBO’s decision to continue to play Allen’s movies has aroused voices in many industries on social media. Ernest Media Empire reporter Ernest Owens wrote on Twitter: “White privileges allowed Woody Allen to continue to play his movies on HBO Max.

“Allen v. Farrow”, directed by Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick, began a four-part show on HBO last Sunday. Soon after the first episode aired, Allen and his wife, Soon-Yi Previn (Soon-Yi Previn) issued a statement condemning the project and its broadcast network.
“These documentaries have no interest in the truth,” Allen and Previn wrote in a joint statement. “On the contrary, they spent several years working secretly with Farrows and their supporters to complete the tedious work full of false facts. Less than two months ago, they contacted Woody and Shunyi, and it only took a few days. They responded. Of course, they refused to do so.”
The statement continued: “As we all know, these allegations are wrong. At that time, several agencies investigated them and found that, whether Dylan Farrow believed it or not, there had never been any abuse. Regrettably, the network that broadcasts the show is HBO, which has a long-term production transaction and business relationship with Ronan Farrow. Although this low-quality popular article may attract attention, it has not changed the facts.”
“Allen v. Farrow (Allen v. Farrow)” continues to air on Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern Time (Eastern Time).
