Lena Dunham Apologizes for Defending ‘Girls’ Writer Accused of Sexual Assault

Lena Dunham has apologized for defending Girls writer Murray Miller after he was accused of sexually assaulting an actress when the woman was 17.

The Girls creator, 31, was widely criticized on social media over the weekend after she released statements seemingly challenging actress Aurora Perrineau’s allegations against Miller, who Perrineau claims raped her in 2012.

Fans were outraged with Dunham’s dismissal of Perrineau’s account and expressed their disgust with her stance on the matter, prompting Dunham to release a new statement on Saturday, November 18, to apologize.
