Justin Timberlake is supporting the #TIMESUP movement at the Golden Globes this year, but fans were quick to call him out on social media given that he starred in Woody Allen’s recent movie, “Wonder Wheel.”
When Timberlake tweeted, “Here we come!! And DAMN, my wife is hot!
#TIMESUP #whywewearblack,” some were quick to respond, “you literally worked with a known predator and are starring in his movie” and “If you truly believe times up then don’t work with Woody.”

“How do you justify wearing black in sympathy with victims of sexual assault while appearing in a new woody allen film?” wrote another.
Timberlake most recently starred in Allen’s “Wonder Wheel,” which hit U.S. theaters last month. On Saturday, another actor in the film, David Krumholtz, said that he “deeply” regretted working with Allen on his most recent film, calling it one of his “most heartbreaking mistakes.”
Allen has been accused of sexual assault by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow, an allegation for which he was investigated in 1992 but never charged. Allen has denied the allegations as an invention of Farrow’s mother, actress Mia Farrow, but they were brought back to the public’s attention when Farrow detailed her experience in an open letter in the New York Times in 2014.
Last month, she published a new op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, in which she called out Kate Winslet, Blake Lively and Greta Gerwig for working with Allen amidst the accusations.
A spokesperson for Timberlake has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
