Justin Timberlake Joins Woody Allen Film, Fans Are PISSED

by at .

Justin Timberlake has agreed to co-star in Woody Allen's next film, and his fans are not pleased.

Upset that the once universally-loved singer would support an alleged child molester, citizens are expressing their condemnation on Twitter.

"You dead to me JT," wrote one disappointed fan.

Another elaborated by calling Timberlake a hypocrite, as the musician has spoken out against injustice in the past.

“Justin Timberlake & his fake selective outrage are going to be in a Woody Allen film, another walking problem protected by white privilege,” scolded the user.

Timberlake recently praised Jesse Williams' impassioned BET Awards speech on racism, but unfortunately met with criticism from those who thought the singer guilty of cultural appropriation.

It sounds like JT's popularity is beginning to dwindle - fast.

Also joining Allen's cast is Kate Winslet, Jim Belushi and Juno Temple.

"Hope they don't bring their children to the set," another fan tweeted in derisive response.

It was once a coup to land a role in a Woody Allen film, as the director has been lauded as a brilliant auteur whose work has earned him - and the actors he works with - a number of awards.

But now, an association with Allen is a source of shame, and many have called for a boycott on his films.

Allen's adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow accused her father of molesting her as a child, although no formal charges have been brought against him.

Since then, Farrow has blasted a variety of celebrities for continuing to work with Allen despite the claims.

"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?" Farrow wrote in an open letter published in The New York Times.

"You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?" she continued. "Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse."

About a week ago, Blake Lively, who stars in the Allen film Cafe Society, commended the director on his work and what a pleasure it was to work with him.

It appears as though in Hollywood, if you make Oscar-winning movies, even the most unspeakable of crimes can be overlooked.
