Two bare-breasted activists rushed the stage during a performance of Woody Allen's New Orleans Jazz Band in Hamburg, Germany, on Tuesday night in an effort to bring fresh attention to allegations of past sexual abuse against the 81-year-old filmmaker.
The protesters — bearing quotes on their torsos from a 2014 open letter by Allen's daughter Dylan Farrow, in which she alleged he had sexually abused her as a child — yelled, "Stop the culture of silence!" before being pulled off the stage by security.
The two women were members of an international women's rights collective called Femen, according to its Facebook page. The group — which describes itself on its website as "a special force of feminism, its spearhead militant unit, modern incarnation of fearless and free Amazons" — has staged similar high-profile public protests over abortion rights and female genital mutilation, among other issues.
Tuesday was Donald Trump Jr.'s day in the glare of comedy. In advance of the New York Times' plan to publish a series of emails he exchanged with Rob Goldstone detailing a Russian offer for dirt on Hillary Clinton and Trump's delighted willingness to receive it, the president's son released them himself.

An album of vaulted, mostly unheard Michael Jackson recordings will be auctioned off by New York auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll later this month, along with a host of items from the personal collection of the late King of Pop.
Appearing as a blank, Sony CD-R with the word “Bible” written in blue sharpie, the album features 12 mastered tracks, all with completed vocals from Jackson.
A handful of the songs — “Monster,” “Breaking News” and “Keep Your Head Up” — appeared on “Michael,” a collection of unreleased material cobbled from tracks the singer was crafting in his final years and released a year after his 2009 death by Sony Records and Jackson’s estate.
Joe Scarborough might be lucky in love, but it appears his relationship with the Republican Party is on the rocks.
After a very public fallout with President Trump, the "Morning Joe" co-host and the GOP seem to be on the precipice of a very messy breakup.
