The Internet is still waiting for Woody Allen's rebuttal (likely in a New York Times op-ed coming soon) to the allegations that he molested his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, more than two decades go. But in the meantime, we have the interview Allen gave to 60 Minutes' Steve Kroft back in 1992, after the allegations first arose during a custody dispute between Allen and Mia Farrow, when Dylan was 7 years old
Here's the Allen quote that opens the segment: "A gigantic industry has been built on a total non-event, and when I say total non-event, I mean total non-event. It wasn’t — it wasn’t as if, you know, I tickled my daughter or something and much has been exaggerated. I’m saying nothing at all," he said.
Elsewhere in Slate: Jessica Winter explains why we shouldn't listen to Allen's biggest defender.
