FEMINIST activists, topless and covered in writing condemning Woody Allen for alleged child abuse, stormed the stage of the Hamburg Philharmonic early this week in Germany, disrupting a concert Allen was giving with his New Orleans Jazz Band.

Two protestors from the extreme Femen group ran onto the stage of the sold-out Elbphilharmonie hall 21 minutes into the performance.

The two activists tried to read a letter from Allen’s adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow, who has accused the Oscar-winning director of abusing her when she was 7. But security guards pulled them offstage before they had a chance.

The activists released their letter to the press. It reads: “Although the incident occurred decades ago, Dylan (now 31) is still suffering the consequences. Woody Allen is not just the neurotic and charming director, actor and musician, but a father who likes to stick his finger in his daughter. We’d like to remind the world, and jazz fans, of that fact.”

Dylan first publicly accused her adoptive father of abuse three years ago. Connecticut prosecutors decided not to pursue criminal charges.
