Ronan Farrow, the humanitarian (no, for real, he works as a diplomat for the State Department!), hottie, and biological son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, rarely talks about his estranged father, whom he hasn’t seen since the series of scandals that led to Allen marrying Farrow’s adopted daughter and Ronan Farrow’s big sister Soon Yi. So it was really unusual yesterday when Ronan Tweeted “Happy Father’s Day, or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law’s day.” Whoa! Burn!
Then, his mother Mia Farrow retweeted it with “BOOM!” in front. This is really happening! They’re playing out a 20-year-old family grudge on Twitter for all to see! But why? It’s possible that Ronan (who changed his name from Satchel after the scandal and ensuing custody battle) wants to draw attention to humanitarian causes – the subject of almost all of his Tweets thus far. Or maybe he just thought of a really good burn and couldn’t resist Tweeting it. Either way, an escalation of this feud on Twitter by Allen is extremely unlikely for obvious “He’s Woody Allen and he doesn’t know what Twitter is” reasons, so enjoy it while it lasts.
