Alec Baldwin has unleashed his temper once again.

But this time the target was a follower on Twitter, not a cameraman on the street. And this time no anti-homosexual language was used. So… hey… progress!

The actor blew up, though, when asked by a Twitter follower whether he owes Dylan Farrow an explanation after Woody Allen’s stepdaughter wrote in The New York Times on Saturday that the director sexually assaulted her as a child.

“@ABFalecbaldwin don’t you think maybe you owe #DylanFarrow an apology?,” asked the Internet user, to which the Emmy Award-winner shot back:


“What the f&@% is wrong w u that u think we all need to b commenting on this family’s personal struggle?”

The fan actually replied to this question, continuing the exchange with:

“@ABFalecbaldwin disappointed in your response. You have 2 daughters. You should know better.”

And Baldwin ended it with the following retort: “You are mistaken if you think there is a place for me, or any outsider, in this family’s issue.”

In a very personal essay yesterday, Farrow detailed how Allen would take her up to the attic, tell her to play with her brother’s toy train set and then force himself physically upon her.

She wrote that this happened on multiple occasions and it caused her to develop both an eating disorder and self-mutilation habits later in life.

Aside from telling her terrible story, Dylan called out those in Hollywood who continue to work with Allen or defend him in public.

“What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson?” she asked, concluding her open letter with a simple, scary statement:

“Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.”
