Soon-Yi Previn and Woody Allen claim Hillary Clinton returned campaign donation over molestation allegations

Soon-Yi Previn’s interview with New York magazine in defense of husband, Woody Allen — the former longtime boyfriend of her adoptive mother, Mia Farrow — has caused quite the social media storm since it was published Sunday night.

The 47-year-old Previn, who told the magazine she was a college freshman when her affair with Allen began, accused Farrow of being an abusive parent and refuted her sister Dylan Farrow’s allegations that Allen molested her when she was a child.

Meanwhile, Dylan and her brother, Ronan Farrow, have issued statements slamming the “bizarre fabrications” in the “hit job.” Others have criticized the piece because it was written by Daphne Merkin, a longtime friend of Allen’s who has previously expressed doubt about the #MeToo movement.

A reference to Hillary Clinton is also grabbing attention. According to Merkin’s piece, the Annie Hall director claims the former presidential candidate “unceremoniously returned” a campaign contribution they sent her.

Others, however, are unimpressed, noting that Clinton was still professionally linked to Harvey Weinstein, whose widespread allegations of sexual misconduct were exposed last fall — in part by Ronan Farrow himself. Clinton later issued a statement saying she was “shocked and appalled” by the charges against Weinstein.
