Lee informed Len Berman and Michael Riedel on 710 WOR’s “In The Morning, that his longtime pal was battling falling out of grace amid the #MeToo motion.

“I’d similar to to say Woody Allen is a good, nice filmmaker and this cancel factor isn’t just Woody,” Lee mentioned on the present.

“And once we look again on it we’re going to see that — in need of killing somebody — you may’t simply erase somebody like they by no means existed. Woody is a pal of mine … and I do know he’s going by it proper now.”
