Harold Perrineau Speaks After Daughter Accuses 'Girls' Writer of Rape

'Lost' alum Harold Perrineau is finally speaking out, weeks after his daughter accused a 'Girls' writer of raping her.

Perrineau's daughter, Aurora, has alleged that Murray Miller raped her in 2012, when she was 17 years old. Miller has denied it.

"So, it's finally time for me to speak. I've been silent for a few weeks now. Completely silent. I mean what do you say when you are watching your wife not eat or sleep? What do you say when you realized you couldn't protect your child? What do you say when your heart is just... broken? Silence,” Perrineau says in an emotional statement.

"In that silence, I noticed something. Someone — Aurora. I noticed her strength and bravery. I noticed her stand up. Stand up and say no more! No more terror, or fear, no more nightmares, no more hiding."

"And I realized, I'm not watching some victim here, I'm in the presence of a warrior. A real life crime fighter who is unafraid to look boldly at some coward who hoped to abuse her and say, no."

Aurora, now 23, filed a complaint with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office that she was 17 when she met Miller at LA's Standard Hotel with friends. After consuming "some alcoholic beverages" she alleged Miller asked them for a ride home and she awoke naked in his bed, where he was allegedly having sex with her.

"I realized I am witnessing thousands of heroes stand up everyday and say no more. And I finally had my #metoo moment. If you are willing to stand up, #metoo. If you are willing to fight, #metoo. If you are willing to say no more to this way of life where people think they can abuse you and get away with it, then I say, hells yes, #metoo."

"So to every other person that is fighting back, I say thank you for all of your support, and I stand with you. I fight beside you."

He then warns: "Lastly, to all of you out there that think you can get away with your abuse, to you and all of your friends with 'inside information' or outside influence, I say, let's let the police do their job. But you should know this... YOU HAVE FU**ED WITH THE WRONG FAMILY!!! WE STAND UP!!!"
