Lena Dunham Sorry For Sexual Predator Joke


Lena Dunham has apologized to victims of abuse for joking about being a “sexual predator” in her memoir Not That Kind of Girl. 

After she was accused by right-wing blog Truth Revolt that she sexually abused her then one-year-old sister, Dunham has spoken out against those claims and insisted that she does “not condone any kind of abuse under any circumstances” and didn’t mean to be “insensitive.”

In a statement to Time.com on Sunday, the 28-year-old actress explained everything and said that her sister fully supports her.

I am dismayed over the recent interpretation of events described in my book ‘Not That Kind of Girl’. First and foremost, I want to be very clear that I do not condone any kind of abuse under any circumstances.

Childhood sexual abuse is a life-shattering event for so many, and I have been vocal about the rights of survivors. If the situations described in my book have been painful or triggering for people to read, I am sorry, as that was never my intention.

I am also aware that the comic use of the term ‘sexual predator’ was insensitive, and I’m sorry for that as well. As for my sibling, Grace, she is my best friend, and anything I have written about her has been published with her approval.
