Topless Feminist Activists Disrupt Woody Allen Jazz Concert in Germany (Video)

On Tuesday evening, the women stormed the stage at a Hamburg concert venue where the Jewish-American filmmaker was performing with his New Orleans Jazz Band, according to The New York Times. The two protestors were topless and had the opening lines from Dylan Farrow's 2014 letter - in which she accused her father of sexual abuse - written on their bodies.

The incident occurred at Hamburg's spectacular new Elbphilharmonie hall, where G20 leaders including US President Donald Trump attended a concert last week. But security guards pulled them offstage before they had a chance.

The act was meant to, "remind the world and jazz fans sitting in the audience that he is not just the neurotic and charming director, musician and actor", the group wrote on its Facebook page.

A topless activist protesting Woody Allen's sexual abuse allegations disrupted his concert in Hamburg.

In March, Rivlin rejected a request for clemency by Olmert, but said he could consider pardoning him if he were granted parole. The crimes occurred during earlier stints when Olmert was mayor of Jerusalem and the national trade and industry minister.

Allen remained calm and seated on stage throughout the ordeal, and continued playing his instrument as soon as the women left the stage.

The protestors stand on the stage shouting into the audience and then it takes a turn for the freakish as the band continue playing while the protestors are screaming and being dragged off stage.

Her brother Ronan and their mother, actress-activist Mia Farrow, have said they opted not to press charges in the 1990s due to Dylan's "fragility" at the time and prosecutors decided not to pursue the matter.

In a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter previous year, Dylan's brother Ronan Farrow detailed the allegations, and condemned the general press silence surrounding them.
