BREITBART: Actress Lena Dunham threw a man cleared of a rape allegation under the bus in a public apology that is equal parts sycophancy and narcissism.
In August, a man named Murray Miller was cleared by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office after he had been accused of raping actress Aurora Perrineau in 2012 when she was just 17.
The prosecutor not only declined to charge Miller based on the statute of limitations, they added that “based on the evidence presented, which included Victim, Suspect and witness statements, there are inconsistencies which cannot be overcome. For those reasons, the People would not be able to prove this crime beyond a reasonable doubt, and prosecution is declined.”
Based on everything that makes America America, Murray Miller is an innocent man. That is how things work in this country. That is how they should work. And the fact that Miller was a writer and executive producer of Lena Dunham’s HBO show Girls does not change that fact.
Nevertheless, on two occasions related to this allegation, the morally illiterate Dunham has gotten it exactly wrong.
When Perrineau first made her allegation against Murray public in November of last year, and without knowing any of the facts, Dunham ran out to defend her pal by releasing a statement that called Perrineau a liar.
“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% of assault cases that are misreported every year,” Dunham said.
The backlash against Dunham was brutal, immediate, and deserved. The only “insider information” she could have possibly had that would prove a rape did not happen is if she had strapped Miller with a body-cam throughout all of 2012 and saved the tapes. MORE HERE
