Hypocritical Lena Dunham Defends Male Feminist ‘Girls’ Writer Accused of Raping Actress

Los Angeles police are investigating a report filed by actress Aurora Perrineau, who alleges that Girls writer Murray Miller raped her in 2012, when she was 17.

Girls lead Lena Dunham’s isolationist activism – she stands in opposition to school cafeterias mixing American cuisine with the foreign influence of Japanese sushi – has received substantial media attention

Eager to reveal her own hypocrisy, Lena Dunham, the outspoken feminist who is sometimes dubbed the “voice of a generation,” defended the accused, stating that the allegations against him were false and that she believed the accusation to be “one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year.”

Dunham has strongly opposed the possibility that women ever lie about their abuse. 

On early Friday, The Wrap reported that Perrineau, who appeared in bit roles in Jennifer Lawrence’s Passengers and a variety of TV shows, and is the daughter of Lost actor Harold Perrineau filed a report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The actress claims that she met Miller while she was out with two other friends at the Standard Hotel, where the male feminist screenwriter flirted with her despite knowledge of her age. “He was flirting with me. I told him repeatedly that I was 17 years old,” she said in her statement to police.

According to the actress, Miller, who was 35 at the time, asked one of her friends for a ride home with them “because he was drunk,” adding that when they drove him back to his home, everyone got out of the car but she didn’t want to but “felt like I had to go along with everyone else.”

“At some point, I woke up in Murray’s bed naked. He was on top of me having sexual intercourse with me. At no time did I consent to any sexual contact with Murray,” said Perrineau to police.

Miller’s lawyer, Matthew Walerstein, denied the claims and said that the actress’ lawyers sought “substantial monetary damages from him,” which he allegedly rebuffed, before going to the police. Aurora’s mother Brittany Perrineau rebuffed the lawyer’s claims that her daughter or her family wanted any monetary compensation.

Defending her friend, Dunham released a statement along with Girls co-showrunner Jenni Konner stating that because they had known him for over a decade, there was no way he could’ve raped Perrineau.

“During the windfall of deeply necessary accusations over the last few months in Hollywood, we have been thrilled to see so many women’s voices heard and dark experiences in this industry justified,” they said.

“It’s a hugely important time of change and, like every feminist in Hollywood and beyond, we celebrate. But during every time of change there are also incidences of the culture, in its enthusiasm and zeal, taking down the wrong targets. We believe, having worked closely with him for more than half a decade, that this is the case with Murray Miller. 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% of assault cases that are misreported every year. 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.”

In August, Dunham tweeted support for her strong belief that women never lie about rape.

The Girls actress faced down accusations of sexually abusing her own little sister as a child after she described several strange situations in her autobiography, Not That Kind of Girl.

So much for listen and believe.

    So, the slob who sexually abused her little sister and also — years after the non-event — falsely accused a fellow student of rape (because he was Oberlin’s ONLY Republican student) is to be treated as credible exactly why?

    Because when Lefties rape, it isn’t really rape.

      Jews don’t consider the goyim to actually be people, so no… they don’t see it as rape. Goyim are livestock, cattle, slaves.

    “over half a decade” That is less than ten years, not nearly long enough to make a character judgement. How long has Lena known Franken?

    Now she’s recanted her false declaration of his innocence – a recant in which she refers to herself in the Royal “We”.

    Wouldn’t it be something if she recanted her false accusation about the only Republican at Oberlin who raped her?

    Or apologized for raping her baby sister?

    There’s no level she won’t stoop to, beyond parody and beneath contempt.
