Woody Allen has said that the allegations of sexual assault made against Harvey Weinstein are “sad” for the former boss of The Weinstein Company and Miramax, and has warned against a “witch hunt.”

“The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved,” Allen told the BBC. “Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that his life is so messed up. There’s no winners in that, it’s just very, very sad and tragic for those poor women that had to go through that.”

Allen added that he hoped the revelations would improve matters, but warned against a “witch hunt.”

“You don’t want it to lead to a witch-hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself. That’s not right either. But sure, you hope that something like this could be transformed into a benefit for people rather than just a sad or tragic situation.”
