We don’t always heed our mother’s advice, and then we usually regret it. Selena Gomez might be in that same boat, even if she doesn’t get along with her mother. Apparently, Mandy Teefey, Gomez’s mom, advised Gomez to avoid working with Allen, who has been criticized for sexual abuse allegations from his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow.
People are freaking out:
@selenagomez i adore you and think you’re an amazing person but working with woody allen even after your mum advised you not too just doesn’t sit well with me. i thought you were a lot more woke than that and it makes me so extremely disappointed in you

Imagine your mum telling you “hey maybe don’t work with this guy” and ignoring her then thinking you can survive this. She’s so cancelled. https://t.co/yRadRkvNa9

Gomez is facing pressures to act along with her co-stars in donating her fee for upcoming work in Allen’s, A Rainy Day.
