Alec Baldwin criticizes public 'renunciation' of Woody Allen as 'unfair'

Baldwin defends Allen, even as others distance themselves from the director.

"Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose," Baldwin, 59, wrote in the first of two tweets today. "But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career."

The 22-year-old actor is the latest star to speak out after the director's adopted daughter Dylan Farrow recently penned an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times questioning why the #MeToo movement has seemingly spared Allen.

But Baldwin cautioned that such accusations should be "treated carefully."

In 2014, Farrow wrote an op-ed piece in The New York Times, in which she told the story of how Allen allegedly sexually assaulted her at age 7.

"No one wants to discourage abuse victims from speaking out," Allen wrote in a letter published by The New York Times in response to Farrow's account, "but one must bear in mind that sometimes there are people who are falsely accused and that is also a terribly destructive thing."

Allen's representatives did not respond to ABC News' requests for comment.

This isn't the first time Baldwin has weighed in on the #MeToo movement. Last year, he briefly quit Twitter after he was criticized for "blaming the victim" in a "PBS NewsHour" about the sexual harassment allegations roiling Hollywood.

Before signing off, he tweeted, "My goal is to do better in all things related to gender equality."
