People Are Applauding Dylan Farrow For Calling Out Justin Timberlake On Twitter

Farrow, who has accused director Woody Allen of molesting her as a child, called out Timberlake, who recently appeared in one of Allen's films.

On Thursday, Justin Timberlake took to Twitter to ask an innocuous question about a commonly known phrase, but things swiftly took a turn when Dylan Farrow responded to his tweet.

Farrow is director Woody Allen's daughter and for years has alleged that the filmmaker molested her as a child.

In 2017, Timberlake starred in Allen's film, Wonder Wheel, alongside Kate Winslet.

Since the reckoning of sexual harassment and assault happened last year, there's been a growing chorus of people denouncing Allen.

Many celebrities issued statements saying they regretted working with the director, and some have offered their salaries from his films to charity organizations for survivors of sexual abuse.

"Can someone please explain the saying, 'You just want your cake and to eat it too,'" Timberlake wrote. "What else am I about to do with a cake?"

Though Timberlake received a ton of silly and fun responses from fans, Farrow had a more direct response. "The saying means, for example, you can't support Time's Up and praise a sexual predators at the same time."

"You can't retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. - retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. - eating the cake)," she finished.

Farrow's response comes at a time when Hollywood at large has been jolted into action, figuring out how best to address allegations of rampant sexual harassment and assault within the industry.

At the 2018 Golden Globes, Timberlake wore a Time's Up pin in solidarity with men and women dedicated to the cause.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Timberlake's publicist for comment.

Support for Farrow's tweet immediately began to come in.

@RealDylanFarrow @jtimberlake Yes, Dylan! 👏

"I want to retweet this 100 times," a Twitter user said. "You go, Dylan!!"

@RealDylanFarrow @jtimberlake I want to retweet this a 100 times. You go Dylan!! #TimesUp on your hypocrisy JT https://t.co/bkJtfQh6CM

Others rallied behind Farrow, calling for Timberlake speak out against the famed director.

@RealDylanFarrow @jtimberlake Yes Justin👉 when are you going to speak out against Woody Allen? #TimesUp #MeToo

One person tweeted photos of Timberlake with his Time's Up pin next to an image of him working on the set of Wonder Wheel.

"Drag him," another demanded.

@RealDylanFarrow @jtimberlake DRAG HIM.

But overall, many were just impressed by Farrow's bold response.

@RealDylanFarrow @jtimberlake daaaaayum
