Stephen King Tweets About “Element Of Palpable Bitchery” In Post About Dylan Farrow’s Accusations

  • Yesterday, the writer Mary Karr tweeted a (fantastic) blog post from The New Inquiry about the sexual abuse accusations against Woody Allen by his daughter, Dylan Farrow. The piece addresses the assumption that Dylan is lying about the abuse she suffered, as if it’s part of a conspiracy to harm Allen’s “good name.”  In response to Karr’s tweet, Stephen King replied, “Boy, I’m stumped on that one. I don’t like to think it’s true, and there’s an element of palpable bitchery there, but …” He later tweeted, “Have no opinion on the accusations; hope they’re not true. Probably used to wrong word” and then “Still learning my way around this thing. Mercy, please.” [The Daily Dot]
