Lena Dunham was called out for being a “fake feminist” by the liberal army she helped create.
Murray Miller, a writer for Dunham’s show Girls, was accused of raping a young actress when she was 17-years-old. The actress’s name is Aurora Perrineau, and she claims the attack happened back in 2012 after a night of hard partying.
From The Wrap:
She said in her statement for the polygraph test that she met Miller while out with some friends at the Standard Hotel, where she “consumed some alcoholic beverages.”
“He was flirting with me. I told him repeatedly that I was 17 years old,” Perrineau said in the statement.
The actress was with two friends, she said, and Miller asked one of them for a ride home “because he was drunk,” and the group agreed. Miller was 35 at the time.
She said everyone got out of the car at Miller’s home, and she did not 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,” she said in the statement.
Almost immediately, Lena Dunham came out in defense of 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 percent of assault cases that are misreported every year.
At one point in time, Dunham said that anyone who made rape accusations should be “unconditionally believed”.
Things women do lie about: what they ate for lunch. Things women don't lie about: rape.

Asia Argento, one of Harvey Weinstein’s accusers, fired back after she heard the news.
You wrote me an email of support a few weeks ago, and now you defend a rapist? WTF @lenadunham?
