Justin Timberlake: Roasted on Twitter by Dylan Farrow!

It wasn’t so long ago that Justin Timberlake’s #TimesUp tweet got him slammed for hypocrisy

Well, he tweeted what looked like an innocent question on Tuesday, and Dylan Farrow seized the opportunity to roast him.

Read the tweets for yourself and decide whether or not it was well-deserved.

On Tuesday, Justin Timberlake tweeted out a question:

“Random question: Can someone please explain the saying, ‘You just want your cake and to eat it too.’ What else am I about to do with a cake??”

Now, obviously, he’s trying to get to how that saying came about.

We would assume that it comes from many cakes being works of art. Colorful, full of writing, and perhaps even containing sculpted shapes made from frosting.

Cakes really are beautiful — and we just mean regular cakes. Then there are the cakes that you’ve seen on those cake-based reality shows over the years.

So it’s easily conceivable that someone would have had to explain to a young, distressed child that they cannot have their cake — this piece of ephemeral artwork — and also eat it.

Dylan Farrow decided to spell out her answer using an … example.

She tweeted her reply:

“The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time.”

And, specifically:

“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).”

That might be a little harsh, but she’s absolutely right. Praising and uplifting a known sex monster goes against everything that #TimesUp is supposed to represent.

In case you’re wondering what issue Dylan Farrow has with Justin Timberlake … let us refresh your memory.

JT is one of the leading stars in Woody Allen’s next film, Wonder Wheel, in which he’ll play a lifeguard being pursued by a mother and her estranged husband’s daughter.

Woody Allen is infamous for his films about older men pursuing younger women, but he’s also infamous for allegedly having molested his daughter (Dylan Farrow) and for definitely having married a woman, Soon-Yi, whom many view as his daughter.

So he got roasted for his #TimesUp post before the Golden Globes.

It sure struck a lot of folks as being majorly hypocritical.

Dylan Farrow, of course, is very close to this story.

The rest of us look on in disappointment as stars who should know better — Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, Blake Lively — have work with Woody Allen of their own volition.

But for Dylan Farrow, we’re talking about a man whom she accuses of transforming her life for the worst. You don’t get a second chance at childhood, folks. And the scars of childhood trauma stay with you for the rest of your life.

Just recently, Dylan Farrow spoke about how Woody Allen molested her — and it was the first time that she spoke about the terrible trauma on camera. 

Justin Timberlake is talented and beautiful and charming, but that doesn’t excuse him for being tone-deaf on Twitter.

Dylan Farrow on CBS This Morning 2

Watching her interview was hard. Despite herself, she cried during it.

It is difficult for abuse survivors to talk about the horrors that they experienced without actively reliving them.

(Either that or dissociating; either of which can be awkward in an interview)

None of us can make her life better or redo her childhood.

But surely the least that we can all do is refrain from lending aid and comfort to people accused of monstrous deeds.

Otherwise, their time will never actually be up.

Dylan Farrow: I Want to Take Down Woody Allen!

Years ago, Dylan Farrow spoke out against Woody Allen, accusing him of sexual abuse. He continues to churn out his creepy movies about old men and young women.

We don't know if the #MeToo momentum is enough to spell Time's Up for Woody Allen, but Dylan Farrow is speaking out again, on CBS This Morning.

In the teaser video for the interview below, Dylan Farrow responds to questions of why she wants to bring down Woody Allen … and why you should believe her.

Nearly four years ago, in a haunting essay, Dylan Farrow accused Woody Allen of molesting her as a child.

I still remember reading it. The grim details of her experience as a 7-year-old isn't something that you easily forget. But you might want to.

We're sure that she wishes that she could forget.

Woody Allen was her adoptive father. He has always denied the allegations, calling them "disgraceful" and "untrue," to no one's surprise.

Child abuse on its own sort of maxes out any awfulness scale, but if it were possible for it to get worse, it would be child abuse committed by a parent.

From the moment that the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment story broke at the beginning of October 2017, many women realized that there had been just enough of a cultural shift for them to name the sex monsters who walked among them.

All of these women have faced backlash in one form or another, but now the world knows the names of dozens of men with whom no one should ever have to be alone on an elevator.

But all along, people listening to these stories have wondered — when will Woody Allen's time finally be up?

He hasn't been named by one of 2017 or 2018's #MeToo stories. Dylan Farrow called him out in 2014. it's not a secret.

And yet not only has he faced zero legal consequences, but he's still free. He has a career. He wins awards. Actresses who should know better, like Selena Gomez, still work with Woody Allen

Woody Allen gets trashed by people like Ellen Pompeo, but he also gets defended by celebs like Alec Baldwin.

But Dylan Farrow isn't remaining silent, and she went on CBS This Morning to speak about Woody Allen.

Gayle King mentions that people have suggested that Dylan is simply out to get or bring down Woody Allen.

Dylan replies:

"Why shouldn't I want to bring him down? Why shouldn't I be angry? Why shouldn't I be hurt?"

That's such a good reply. Our culture has a toxic craving for people who forgive the people who ruined their lives. It's not healthy.

Forgive somebody who took your car, not your childhood.

"Why shouldn't I feel some sort of outrage that, after all of these years of being ignored and disbelieved and tossed aside. …"

Gayle King then asks why people should believe her, since so much time has passed.

"I suppose [whether people believe me is] on them."

She's right. Dylan has spoken 

"But all I can do is speak my truth and hope."

(The my/your truth line is a pet peeve of mine, but many people feel like it's less confrontational than saying the truth)

"Hope that somebody will believe me instead of just hearing me."

It's difficult to think of a conceivable motive to make Dylan Farrow lie about this.

Speaking out has earned her her hate from diehard Woody Allen fans and stigma from people who believe that her childhood trauma makes her "damaged goods."

False accusations of sexual assault do happen, to be clear. I believe that the statistic is somewhere around 0.04% of the time?

We are very interested in what Dylan Farrow has to say about how her father continues to be accepted and defended in Hollywood, despite her allegations.

Here is the teaser video of her interview:

Dylan Sprouse Responds to Cheating Allegations from Ex, Dayna Frazer

For years, Dylan Sprouse and Dayna Frazer were just a low-key, unnecessarily attractive couple.

Though Dylan Sprouse’s nudes leaked after someone betrayed his trust, but he’d sexted over those pics before he had what seemed like such a stable, healthy relationship with Dayna.

That’s come to an end, however, with Dayna accusing Dylan of cheating last week. Now, Dylan has taken to Twitter to respond.

Dayna Frazer is a gorgeous model.

Seriously, she’s stunning. Check out Dayna Frazer’s Instagram.

Dylan is known for his role in Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Suite Life on Deck, roles that he played as a child actor with his twin brother, Cole Sprouse.

He’s known for being a religious minority — though he’s rarely spoken about being Asatru.

Dylan has a noted interest in video games, as does his twin. (And most people, right?)

He’s only recently overtaken Cole in hair length and became the hotter twin. We can’t quite put our finger on when, but it was in the past couple of years.

And, frankly, Dylan’s known because the world saw him in all of his naked glory back in 2013.

To be clear, every time that nudes leak is a tragedy.

Unfortunately, when you see the name of an actor or actress trending on Twitter without context and you just click on it, you see what leaked just the same as you would if you’d actively sought it out.

Just because Dylan took it in good humor, publicly, doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a terrible thing to happen.

But now it’s Dayna taking to social media to share her heartbreak … and a major accusation.

In case Snapchat text isn’t your thing, that reads:

“When you find out your bf cheated on you lol.”

Dayna is, of course, using some very Millennial language to convey her heartbreak.

It’s just a way of conveying the seriousness of something by pretending that you’re trying to laugh it off.

The juxtaposition of speaking casually and tersely about something devastating, as if it were a joke, is rarely so obvious as when the poster includes a selfie of their tear-streaked face.

It makes a lot of sense that Dayna would be distraught.

Being cheated on can be agonizing. And they were an almost unspeakably beautiful couple.

Just look at this photo of them from earlier this year:

Though both Dayna and Dylan have deleted all photos of each other from their respective social media accounts …

(In Dylan’s case, Instagram was easy because he does that annoying one-photo-showcased-while-other-photos-form-a-mural thing that’s only cute when Jaden Smith does it)

… They haven’t really discussed their breakup much openly.

It wasn’t until Wednesday, a week after Dayna’s accusatory snap, that Dylan tweeted out his public response in a series of four tweets:

“I will say this and only this: by adhering to an assumption based on limited information, you neglect the complicated nature of this issue.”

And then the second tweet:

“The truth always has two sides, and those sides have motivations, and those motivations, despite how cloudy they currently seem, are private.”

And then the third tweet:

“This is complicated and it will remain complicated, but those who know me and who have known me, know well enough what kind of person I am.”

And then the fourth tweet capped it off:

“And that is all.”

First of all, obviously, that’s not a denial.

Which would lead people to believe that he did cheat on Dayna.

If you’re thinking that Dylan’s language sounds stilted, there are a couple of explanations:

First, the more specific that you want to be, the more careful you need to be with your diction. And there’s obviously the real risk of being too verbose.

Second, sometimes when people are upset, they use very clinical language. (I know that my vocabulary becomes way more formal if I’m drinking)

As for whatever meaning we’re supposed to take from his tweets …

Something for sure happens, but it’s something that Dylan seems to believe is more complicated than Dayna is making it out to be.

But he doesn’t seem especially willing to elaborate on that, and wants to keep the matter private.

So … this could be anything, basically. Maybe a miscommunication, maybe they were on a break but not that kind of break. Maybe it was something that he doesn’t consider cheating but she does.

Or maybe Dylan just wants to be vague about it because that sounds better than “yeah, my bad.”

We don’t know the details behind this split or what happened before that, and it would be irresponsible to try to guess the truth with so little information to go on, you know?

That’s a far cry from discussing possibilities.

Here’s what we can say with reasonable certainty:

Dylan Sprouse and Dayna Frazer are both beautiful and talented.

They’re both going through a hard time right now, perhaps for different reasons.

We will probably never learn the whole story of what’s going on.

We wish them both the best, both in their careers and in their personal lives — and, yes, in their future relationships.
