Lena Dunham admits she lied to discredit actor Aurora Perrineau's rape accusation

Source: The Independent

Lena Dunham has admitted she lied about the extent of her knowledge of a rape accusation by actor Aurora Perrineau against Girls writer Murray Miller.

Perrineau came forward last year to allege that in 2012, when she was 17 years old, Miller whose production credits include King of the Hill and American Dad took her and some friends to his home, where she later woke up with him "having sexual intercourse with me."

"At no time did I consent to any sexual contact with Murray", she told The Wrap, after filing a police report about the alleged assault.

Miller denied the allegations. Dunham and her co-show runner Jenni Konner issued a statement on the same day that the accusation against Miller emerged, which attempted to discredit Perrineau.

1. Wonder if that's why she took down her Lenny newsletter

Too bad too. She had a social following that really needed the voice she seemed to represent.

2. Dear God

I've wanted to like Lena Dunham, but just can't. This may be the final nail.

3. Lena is vermin.

Zero redeeming qualities, I have no idea how she accumulated celebrity in the first place, but shit like this is what happens when someone obtains it who doesn't deserve it.

4. She should do time for this kind of shit. Fabricating a story about an episode of this sort...

...should end her career.

5. Well then to hell with Lena Dunham and her show-runner.

I hope both their entertainment industry careers are over.

6. Watch the video at the link

Cringeworthy psychobabble with the victim's mother standing there, clearly not wanting to be there. Just awful.

7. She's got problems. She once blasted footballer Odell Beckham for ignoring her.

10. For the longest time...

...I never actually knew who Lena Dunham was. I'd skimmed some articles about her and gleaned that she was liked by some people and despised by others. A few years ago I tried to watch "Girls". I'd just finished watching a season of another HBO show and was jonesing for a new show while I waited for the next season of the one I'd just watched. I got through 20 minutes of "Girls" and was completely put off. The first scene of the first episode where the entitled,pouting young woman's parents are telling her that they were no longer going to pay her way simply irritated me to no end. I had no idea that the actress playing the entitled, pouting young woman was Lena Dunham. I just knew that I found the character intensely unlikable. Fifteen minutes or so later when the same character is on a couch with her behind in the air while her creepy boyfriend searches for lube I'd had enough. It wasn't until a day or so later when I looked the show up on IMdB to see what others thought of it that I found out that the person I'd been watching was Lena Dunham. I know that Ms. Dunham and the character she played on that show are two different people but those 20 minutes I afforded the show left me with a bad taste in my mouth and a determination to avoid anything with Lena Dunhams's name attached to it.

12. Could be more the writers and directors

As to the character. A director will coach every move.

13. Well according to IMdB...

...Dunham, in addition to starring in the show, is also it's creator.

14. Sorry

I knew nothing of the show. I guess you're right she is responsible for the character of her show.

17. She writes what she knows

She is a privileged millennial female writer/filmmaker whose central character is a privileged, millennial. She got noticed when, with $65K from her artist parents, she wrote, produced, directed and starred in the film "Tiny Furniture" about privileged millennial whose mother stages and photographs doll furniture. Dunham's mother, Laurie Simmons, is a photographer who us known for her pictures of stages scenes using dolls and doll furniture, among other things.Her father is painter Carroll Dunham. She seems to find herself fascinating. I think she's a self-involved bore.

16. Awful show...

A bunch of spoiled white women with "problems" most of us can't relate to.

Ugh, I hate-watched the whole thing. It's just gross and disturbing, like the creator herself.

I hope she goes away real fast.

18. I didn't have the stamina...

...to hate-watch it. I barely made it through that very first scene. When that scene was over and the title card appeared I remember thinking to myself "Do they actually WANT us to watch this show?" Someone watched it. It wasn't me.
