Hachette Drops Woody Allen Memoir After Backlash from Staff, Ronan Farrow

HeadlineMar 09, 2020

Publisher Hachette announced Friday it will no longer publish Woody Allen’s memoir, following major backlash to the news. On Thursday, at least 75 Hachette employees walked out of work in protest; earlier in the week, Ronan Farrow said he was cutting ties with the publisher, which released his book “Catch and Kill” last year, over the decision. Ronan Farrow said Hachette did not fact-check the book with his sister Dylan Farrow, who has accused Woody Allen of sexually abusing her as a child when he was her adoptive father — allegations Allen has denied.
