  1. I agree completely. This man is vile.
    What I don’t understand is why Woody Allen isn’t shunned. In 1992, when he and Mia Farrow broke up because she found his stash of nude pictures he’d taken of her daughter, Soon-Yi was 22. Since Allen and Farrow were involved for 12 years, she was 10 years old when he became the father figure in her life. He is just as vile as the man in the article.
    Though I was a fan of his earlier work, I have refused to see one of his films since this happened.
    I know you moderate, so I will understand if you don’t post this as I am going off on my own tangent here. Thanks for providing us with links and info!

  2. This is disgusting. It’s disgusting when men do this to their children regardless of whether or not they’re adopted. And, I agree with Magi above. I don’t know why there isn’t any issue with Woody Allen and Soon-Yi. I don’t watch his films for this very reason.

  3. What I don’t understand is how the wife did nothing all those years, or appeared to do nothing. Unreal.
    As for Woody Allen, in spite of Soon-Yi’s statements that he was never a father figure to her, his behavior was simply wrong. His biological son with Mia Farrow has been quoted as saying this about the situation:
    “He’s my father married to my sister. That makes me his son and his brother-in-law. That is such a moral transgression. I cannot see him. I cannot have a relationship with my father and be morally consistent…. I lived with all these adopted children, so they are my family. To say Soon-Yi was not my sister is an insult to all adopted children.”
    I think he nails it.
