Almost two weeks after filmmaker Woody Allen spoke out about the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal to say he hopes it doesn’t lead to a ‘witch hunt atmosphere’, director Judd Apatow has called out Allen on Twitter for being what he perceives to be part of the problem.
Yesterday afternoon, the director of films such as Knocked Up and This Is 40 retweeted an article by IndieWire which revealed Allen’s new film includes a sexual relationship between an adult and 15-year-old girl.

In the caption, the 49-year-old father-of-two, husband to actress Leslie Mann, wrote: ‘It is sad that he is obsessed with all these young actresses and none of them run when offered the job.’
Apatow’s warning to young actresses comes days after Manhattan filmmaker Allen said he felt ‘sad’ for Weinstein following the allegations.
‘There’s no winners in that, it’s just very, very sad and tragic for those poor women that had to go through that,’ he told BBC News.
