Hollywood actress/screenwriter/producer Lena Dunham just admitted that she straight up lied to protect a former “Girls” writer accused of rape in 2017:

Dunham made this stunning admission as a guest editor in The Hollywood Reporter:

Eff that “soul-searching” nonsense. SHE. LIED. Here’s the excerpt, emphasis ours:

And so I made a terrible mistake. When someone I knew, someone I had loved as a brother, was accused, I did something inexcusable: I publicly spoke up in his defense. There are few acts I could ever regret more in this life. I didn’t have the “insider information” I claimed but rather blind faith in a story that kept slipping and changing and revealed itself to mean nothing at all. I wanted to feel my workplace and my world were safe, untouched by the outside world (a privilege in and of itself, the privilege of ignoring what hasn’t hurt you) and I claimed that safety at cost to someone else, someone very special.

Here’s her statement from back then when she claimed “insider knowledge” go clear her friend’s name:

Can we be done with her now? Libs, hopefully, have finally had enough:

Why was she rewarded with this guest editorial role anyway?

Not a good look, Hollywood Reporter:

This lie is much more than the “mistake” Lena is claiming and it “should be a career-ender”:

Goodbye, Lena!

And Lena’s reaction to all of this? She’s using it to promote herself, of course:
