While Woody Allen has long been recognized as a talented filmmaker, he’s also developed a troubling reputation. In 1992, Allen’s daughter Dylan Farrow accused her father of molesting her, per CNN. While Farrow has opened up multiple times about the incident, Allen has denied his part. The film director has not been charged, either. Nonetheless, Allen has stirred up quite a lot of controversy regarding cancel culture and the #MeToo movement.
Fans were divided when Selena Gomez made the choice to act in Woody Allen’s romantic comedy film “A Rainy Day in New York.” And Gomez’s mom, Mandy Teefey, was not happy about her decision to work with a director who faced some alarming allegations. According to Us Weekly, in 2018, Teefey took to Instagram and claimed that she had discouraged Gomez from working with him. However, it didn’t have an effect. She wrote, “Her team are amazing people. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears.”
