Topless Protesters Bust In On Woody Allen

Two topless female protesters from the radical feminist activist group Femen interrupted a Tuesday evening concert by Woody Allen and his New Orleans Jazz Band, who were playing their first concert in Germany in six years. Specifically targeting Allen for his alleged abuse of adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, the women stormed the stage some 20 minutes into the show at the new Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg. The woman ran

about on stage wearing flowers in their hair and with messages scrawled on their bodies – quotes from Farrow’s 2014 open letter detailing Allen’s alleged abuse, according to Femen’s Facebook page. The protestors were met with loud boos from the audience before they were finally subdued and escorted out of the hall by personnel. Following the show, activists outside the Elbphilharmonie handed out leaflets explaining that they had not sought “to spoil the evening,” but rather “to give the victims of sexual violence a voice.”
