In an “exclusive” to Time magazine, Lena Dunham has responded to the recent allegations that certain passages in her recent book, “Not That Kind of Girl,” describe sexual abuse of her younger sister.
Dunham writes that she is sorry if “the situations described in my book have been painful or triggering for people to read” and for the “comic use of the term ‘sexual predator.'”
She thought there was a “comic use” of “sexual predator”? Really???
Some on Twitter don’t think her apology covers it:
Here’s what Dunhm wrote for Time in its entirety:
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.
