Barbara Walters defends 'friend' Woody Allen
NEW YORK (KGO) -- Barbara Walters has a lot of people talking after she spoke out on "The View" about the child molestation allegations against director Woody Allen by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow.
Over the weekend, Farrow wrote an open letter published by the New York Times detailing a 1992 incident in which she says Allen molested her.
Walters came to the director's defense, noting that she and Allen are friends.
That sparked a heated exchange between Walters and co-host Sherri Shepherd.
Allen's attorneys maintain that his ex-wife Mia Farrow encouraged Dylan to make up the abuse allegations during a custody battle.
