Topless Feminist Protesters Disrupt Woody Allen Concert
Posted: July 12, 2017
HAMBURG, Germany (CelebrityAccess) -- A pair of topless feminist protesters crashed a live jazz performance by actor and comedian Woody Allen during in Hamburg on Tuesday night.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two women were members of Femen, a group of feminist activists known for their topless protests.

The two protesters, who covered with writing condemned Allen for his alleged child abuse, entered the stage of the Hamburg philharmonic while Allen performed with his New Orleans Jazz Band. The two tried to read a letter from Allen's adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow who has lodged abuse allegations against Allen, the Hollywood Reporter said.

Security removed the two women from the stage and the concert continued. Allen seemed unperturbed by the disturbance.

Dylan Farrow first made public abuse allegations against Allen three years ago, claiming that the alleged abuse occurred in 1992 when Allen and Dylan's mother Mia were living together. Prosecutors in Connecticut conducted a criminal investigation of Allen following the allegations, but declined to bring charges against the comedian.

Femen later released a transcript of the letter their activists attempted to read to the press.
