Author and reporter Ronan Farrow has slammed his publisher Hachette after it announced it would publish Woody Allen’s forthcoming memoir. Farrow said the decision “shows a lack of ethics and compassion for victims of sexual abuse,” and announced he was cutting ties with the publisher. In 2017, Ronan Farrow published a piece in The New Yorker detailing abuse by recently convicted rapist and former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. The article is widely considered to be a watershed moment in the #MeToo movement. Last year, Hachette published Farrow’s book “Catch and Kill,” which details the challenges he faced investigating Weinstein and other powerful media figures accused of sexual assault. Ronan Farrow is also the brother of Dylan Farrow, who has accused Woody Allen of sexually abusing her as a child when he was her adoptive father. Allen has denied those allegations.
