Dunham needs to go back to molesting her baby sister. At least that was somethin' she was good at.

Lena Dunham, who said women don’t lie about rape, defends ‘Girls’ writer accused of rape

Lena Dunham - What did she tweet about rape?

She tweeted in August, “Things women do lie about: what they ate for lunch. Things women don’t lie about: rape.”

Buuuuut now that a writer for her Girls show is accused of rape, standards have suddenly changed.

Liberal actress Lena Dunham came out to forcefully defend her “Girls” writer from accusations that he raped an actress, but some are throwing back in her face a tweet where she said women never lie about rape.

What did she tweet about rape?

She tweeted in August, “Things women do lie about: what they ate for lunch. Things women don’t lie about: rape.”

What is she saying now?

Her friend Murray Miller is being accused by actress Aurora Perrineau of rape when she was underage. She is now 23 years old.

Rather than believe the accusations, Dunham is defending Miller, who is a former executive producer and writer on her HBO show, “Girls.”

“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,” Dunham’s spokesperson said.

“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,” Dunham concluded.

Wasn’t Dunham accused too?

Dunham also fought off accusations in 2014 that she had molested her sister based on a reading of how she described exploring her sexuality as a child in her memoir.

Lena Dunham is one of those train wrecks in the process of happening.

Her moralizing of other's actions, and self-aggrandizing will be her down-fall.

I only became aware of her a couple of months ago - and firmly placed her in the same category as the Kardashians.

I've heard her name before (probably due to this recent comment), but I have no idea who this women is or what she is supposedly famous for doing.

An actress from a TV show called 'Girls'. I had to be told who she was also.

A supposed self-styled feminist who is all surface and no substance, IMO.

Thanks for the info. I've never heard of the show. I'm betting that I am not missing much.

That's more to the heart of it...

She has a show; I've never seen it...

But she is MORE famous for being a Social Justice Warrior and political moron...

One of many examples...

Lena Dunham slammed for 'Dog or Jewish boyfriend?' quiz

Quote:
Actress Lena Dunham is no stranger to controversy, and she's in hot water again. This time it's because she compares her Jewish boyfriend to a dog in the latest issue of the New Yorker.

The Anti-Defamation League has called the article "tasteless" and "insensitive."


The playful, satirical quiz, presents 35 statements and asks the reader to decide if they refer to a dog or to her Jewish boyfriend. Dunham, the creator of HBO's hit show Girls, has said she is half-Jewish herself. She dates musician Jack Antonoff.

Some examples: He "doesn't tip," he "never brings his wallet anywhere," and "comes from a culture in which mothers focus every ounce of their attention on their offspring and don't acknowledge their own need for independence as women," Dunham writes.

"We are surprised that the New Yorker chose to print it," said the ADL's national director Abraham Foxman.
