Bill Maher Needles Ronan Farrow About His Father, ‘Whoever That May Be’ (Video)

Bill Maher’s parting quip Friday night about the paternity of his “Real Time” guest, Ronan Farrow, had many fans calling the joke a “cheap laugh” that “stepped over the line.”

In a 2013 Vanity Fair story, Farrow’s mother, actress Mia Farrow, revealed that Ronan’s biological father was “possibly” her ex-husband Frank Sinatra, and not Woody Allen. Since then, Farrow’s resemblance to the late crooner has sparked speculative chatter, which the Pulitzer Prize-winning author has taken in stride.

At the end of Farrow’s interview with Maher on Friday, the comedian applauded the journalist’s first book — “War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence” — and articles late last year in The New Yorker which helped uncover the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations.

“Amazing work on a number of fronts,” the HBO host told Farrow, adding, “You obviously have your mother’s incredible compassion… and your father’s steely ambition… whoever that may be.”

Farrow’s entire interview is above, including the reaction to Maher’s comment.

Although the journalist has joked about it in the past, tweeting at the time “Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son,” some on Twitter thought it was no laughing matter.

“I like Bill, but that comment about Farrow’s father was rude and stepped over the line,” wrote on Twitter user. Here are a few others.
