How Ronan Farrow Won the Internet With Pre-Father’s Day Tweet

”OpenTable, I have a few things to tell you,“ Farrow tweeted about his dad, Woody Allen

Ronan Farrow pretty much won the internet on Friday when mobile app Open Table sent him a reminder that Father’s Day is coming up on June 18.

“OpenTable, I have a few things to tell you,” tweeted Farrow.

Of course, the TV journalist was making a not-so-subtle reference to his estranged father, Woody Allen.


In 2011 Farrow said of the filmmaker, “He’s my father married to my sister. That makes me his son and his brother-in-law. That is such a moral transgression.”

This isn’t the first time the MSNBC host has trolled his dad on the day that most people are celebrating their parents.

“Happy Father’s Day — or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law’s day,” Farrow tweeted back in 2012.


When asked about longstanding speculation that Ronan is the son of Mia Farrow’s ex-husband Frank Sinatra, Mia told Vanity Fair in 2013 that Sinatra might “possibly” be Ronan’s father. After the allegation became widespread in the media, Ronan tweeted humorously on Oct. 2, 2013, “Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son.”


In a February 7, 2014, editorial Woody Allen wrote in The New York Times, the “Annie Hall” director expressed his uncertainty, writing, “Is he my son or, as Mia suggests, Frank Sinatra’s?”

No DNA testing has been reported to determine Farrow’s paternity. According to Tina Sinatra, Frank Sinatra’s youngest daughter, Frank had previously undergone a vasectomy and could not have been Ronan’s biological father.
