Here's what people are saying on Twitter:

@WriterWeegs: Very irresponsible of #BarbaraWalters to stick up for #WoodyAllen today re #DylanFarrow's allegations. Good on #Sherrisheperd 4 speaking up.

@OU182: After 2day's #TheView Barbara Walters might want to consider moving her retirement date up. Defending ppl b/c they're friends is DANGEROUS.

@yaaDetroitewaa: do you realize what kind of culture and atmosphere you're contributing to by denying someone who speaks up about abuse @BarbaraJWalters???

@SharonPucci: .#SherriShepard giving #BarbaraWalters a smack down while Babs defended Woody Allen was PRICELESS and necessary! #TheView

@Ask_Mark_Ward: @BarbaraJWalters A seasoned journalist actually thinks that a "nice man" cannot be guilty of molestation? Ignorant & offensive. #theview
