Dylan Farrow Calls Out Justin Timberlake Over #TimesUp: 'You Can't Retain Your Credibility as an Activist'

On Tuesday (Jan. 23) “Filthy”  singer Justin Timberlake took to Twitter to ask a “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??”

Dylan Farrow decided to take this as a teaching opportunity for Timberlake. She responded with, “The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time. 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).”

Farrow is referencing the fact that Timberlake starred in a Woody Allen film last year, despite the fact that Farrow has accused Allen of sexual abuse in the past. Timberlake then wore a “#TimesUp” pin at the Golden Globes, where he received backlash for not addressing his working relationship with Allen.
