Editor’s note: Lena Dunham released a statement in support of Miller:

Another day, another bombshell sexual assault allegation out of Hollywood, this one against Murray Miller who was a writer on Lena Dunham’s HBO show “Girls”:
‘Girls’ Writer Murray Miller Accused of Raping Underage Actress Aurora Perrineau (Exclusive)
— TheWrap (@TheWrap) November 17, 2017
According to the wrap, the alleged rape happened in 2012 when actress Auror Perrineau was only 17. Oh, and she’s reportedly passed a polygraph test:
Actress Aurora Perrineau has gone to police to accuse “Girls” writer and executive producer Murray Miller of raping her in 2012, when she was 17 years old, TheWrap has exclusively learned.
Perrineau, who has appeared in Jennifer Lawrence’s “Passengers” and is the daughter of “Lost” actor Harold Perrineau, told TheWrap she filed a report with the West Hollywood’s Sheriff’s Station on Friday.
TheWrap obtained the results of a polygraph test Perrineau said she passed in September in which she detailed her accusations against Murray, who was also a producer on the Fox animated comedies “King of the Hill” and “American Dad.”
Miller, through his attorney, denies the charges:
Miller’s attorney, Matthew Walerstein, said he “categorically and vehemently denies Ms. Perrineau’s outrageous claims” and said his legal team had “gathered overwhelming evidence directly contradicting these false and offensive claims.”
The actress told The Wrap: “I filed a police report today. I cannot talk about the investigation that is happening currently.” She declined further comment.
Dunham once referred to Miller, in what we assume was a joke, as a “human garbage can”:
Tonight's episode of Girls was directed by Claudia Weill, who is a living legend, and written by Murray Miller, who is a human garbage can.

And this tweet from the same the year as the alleged rape might not age well:
Murray Miller's invention of sexual position The Pirate's Booty ("x marks the spot") is the worst thing to happen to America in some time
