In January, Woody Allen’s daughter Dylan Farrow gave an interview to CBS This Morning, stating that her father sexually abused her as a child. Alec Baldwin, who has appeared in three of Allen’s films, went full-Trump and took to Twitter to voice his opinion on the matter.

Remember back in 2007 when a voicemail leaked of Baldwin calling his then 11-year-old daughter Ireland Baldwin a “thoughtless little pig?” At the time, Baldwin was in the midst of a custody battle with his ex-wife Kim Basinger and blamed the vile voicemail he left for his child on the stress of the divorce.

It’s a voicemail that Baldwin says ‘haunts him,’ and one that in 2012 his daughter Ireland said was upsetting only because the media made it into a “bigger deal than it was. He’s said stuff like that before just because he’s frustrated. For me it was like, ‘OK, whatever.’ I called him back I was like, ‘Sorry, Dad, I didn’t have my phone.’ That was it.” So, as we read it, this was a normal voicemail in the Baldwin house.

To recap, since the voicemail went public in 2007, Baldwin has gone on to win Emmy and SAG Awards for his work on 30 Rock and most recently for playing Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. Nowadays though, Baldwin is more frequently seen using his twitter platform to defend Allen.

The actor first compares Farrow to Mayella, a character who made fake rape claims against a black man in To Kill A Mockingbird (a poor choice indeed, given that the girl was, in fact, abused by her father in the famed novel). Baldwin proceeds to call out the emotion Farrow displays as a “thing…in her arsenal,” and says he needs more proof before condemning Allen. In a later tweet, he appears to suggest that Farrow simply ‘move on’ from the assault.

This past weekend’s tweets mark the second time Baldwin has defended Allen, with the actor tweeting his support earlier this month, calling the allegations against Allen ‘sad.’ He’s gone full Trump.

In a long overdue move, it’s time to cancel Alec Baldwin.
