Lena Dunham Apologizes After Defending ‘Girls’ Writer Accused of Sexual Assault
Lena Dunham apologized Saturday night for defending a writer and producer on Girls who was accused of sexual assault.
In a lengthy statement posted on her Twitter account on Saturday, Dunham said she never expected to defend someone accused of sexual assault, but she “naively” believed it was important to share her own perspective on her friend’s situation.
“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 the thumb on the scale and it was wrong,” Dunham wrote. – Source
