Lena Dunham Apologizes for Defending 'Girls' Writer from Sexual Assault Allegations

Lena Dunham is speaking out with an apology after she defended her friend, Girls writer Murray Miller, against sexual assault allegations made by actress Aurora Perrineau.

The actress and Girls creator was criticized for saying that “this accusation is one of the 3 percent of assault cases that are misreported every year.”

Lena tweeted out an apology statement on Saturday afternoon (November 18), but then deleted it soon after.

“As feminists, we live and die by our politics, and believing women is the first choice we make every single day when we wake up. Therefore I never thought I would issue a statement publically (sic) supporting someone accused of sexual assault, but I naively believed it was important to share my perspective on my friend’s situation as it has transpired behind the scenes over the last few months,” Lena wrote (via THR). “I now understand that it was absolutely the wrong time to come forward with such a statement and I am so sorry. We have been given the gift of powerful voices and by speaking out we were putting our thumb on the scale and it was wrong. We regret this decision with every fiber of our being.”

Lena Dunham Defends 'Girls' Writer Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

Lena Dunham is coming to the defense of Girls writer Murray Miller amid sexual assault allegations.

Recently, actress Aurora Perrineau filed a report on the alleged incident to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

While Murray has denied the allegations, Lena and her co-showrunner Jenni Konner are also defending him.

“While our first instinct is to listen to every woman’s story, our insider knowledge of Murray’s situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3 percent of assault cases that are misreported every year,” the women said in a statement to THR.

They added, “It is a true shame to add to that number, as outside of Hollywood women still struggle to be believed. We stand by Murray and this is all we’ll be saying about this issue.”
