(Jesse Grant / Getty Images for the Hollywood Reporter) Lena Dunham has a lot of experience with the excuses. A recent profile from the creator of "Girls" said that she had been forced to apologize for a long list of missteps, including calling herself "skinny for, like Detroit". . She also inspired a satirical account on Twitter, Lena Dunham excuses herself"Lena Dunham apologizes at an open musical evening for visiting several Tibetan tetting zoos in search of the" Dalai Lama "." Nevertheless, her latest apology – to actress Aurora Perrineau, whom Dunham had publicly doubted when she had submitted sexual assault complaints against an executive producer on "Girls" – had not gone well . This mea culpa took about a year. Last November, the Wrap reported that Perrineau had filed a police report accusing "Girls" producer and executive producer, Murray Miller, of raping her in 2012, when she was 17 years old. Miller denied the allegations and accused Perrineau of asking him for money. Dunham, shocked by many feminists, has made up his mind. "Although our first instinct is to listen to every woman's story, our privileged knowledge of Murray's situation allows us to believe that this charge is unfortunately part of the 3% reported cases of aggression." every year erroneously, "said the statement. The showrunner Jenni Konner was sent to the Hollywood Reporter immediately after the report was published by Wrap. "It's really a shame to add to that figure because outside of Hollywood, women still have a hard time being made to believe. We are with Murray and that is all we will say about this issue. On Wednesday, Dunham called this initial response an excuse and error, and made a long public apology to Perrineau. "There are few things that I could regret more in this life," she wrote in a 1,400-word letter published in the Hollywood Reporter. "I did not have the" insider information "that I claimed, but rather a blind faith in a story that slipped and shifted and turned out to mean nothing at all." She went on: It 's painful to realize that while I thought I was self – conscious, I had actually internalized the dominant male agenda that requires us to defend it regardless of what I thought it was. it happens, to protect it no matter what, baby, whatever happens. Something in me always feels obliged to do this job: to please, tidy up, do the shopping. My job now is to delve into this part of myself and create a new cavern inside me, in which a candle stays on, always on, and illuminates the wall behind which these words are written. I see you, Aurora. I hear you, Aurora. I believe you, Aurora. Later on Wednesday, at a Women in Entertainment event organized by the magazine, Dunham invited Brittany Perrineau, Aurora Perrineau's mother, on stage. Thanking the two women for "their love, their forgiveness and their courage", she declared that the mistake that constituted her "greatest regret" had become her "greatest moment of evolution and reverence". education". "I learned how my heart and mind had been colonized by patriarchy and how my own ignorance was functioning even as a survivor of multiple sexual assaults," she said. In response, Perrineau told Dunham that she and her daughter "feel your love and receive a sincere apology." But even though Aurora Perrineau and her mother may have forgiven Dunham, the internet did not do it. In fact, Dunham's admission that she had falsely claimed to have "inside information" was giving even more vitriol. The fact that Dunham's open letter to Perrineau included many long diversions of his personal experiences in Hollywood. Sorry, Lena Dunham: The basic information intended to discredit a victim of sexual assault should not be considered a "mistake". This should be an end of career. It is not the "dominant male agenda" – it is about your choices. Laura E. Adkins (@Laura_E_Adkins) December 5, 2018 For someone who has had to excuse so much, you would really think that Lena Dunham would be better for that. – andi zeisler (@andizeisler) December 5, 2018 You know what's really hurtful in Lena Dunham's apology? She never had to defend her colleague. Nobody asked him to make a statement. She spoke and said that she had insider information when she did not have it. It's incredibly damaging, and I hope that Aurora will be fine. – Morgan Jerkins (@MorganJerkins) December 6, 2018 Some critics, like Symone Sanders from CNNwondered why Dunham had been given a high-level public forum to explain, while others suggested that the excuses should have been in private. In fact, a Dunham profile in The Cut in New York in November indicated that the actress and filmmaker had asked Perrineau to apologize in private this fall after the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office refused pursue the charges against Miller. The conversation "went better than expected," said Perrineau's mother. So, why publish a long and long public apology, a year after the facts? After closing her letter in the Hollywood Reporter, Dunham explained that she hoped her admission would lead to a "cure" and acknowledged that she probably would not win new fans. "Some people will think that I'm writing this for the curry the favors of the public," she wrote, adding in parentheses: "It does not matter, though, I've stopped thinking that it was an option for me around 2014, and it's a kind of freedom.
