Hachette Book Group has announced it will not publish Woody Allen's memoir "Apropos of Nothing" following a walkout by the company's employees.
TMZ reported that the decision to refuse to publish came after Ronan Farrow, Allen's son and a prominent journalist, expressed disappointment to Hachette over working with his father.
On Thursday, over 70 employees of Hachette took to the street in what was called an act of solidarity with victims of sexual assault. During their walkout, the employees said, "We stand with Ronan Farrow".

Back in 1992, Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of Woody Allen, accused her stepfather of molesting her when she was 7. Allen has repeatedly denied the allegation.
