Lena Dunham Defends Herself Amid Allegations She Sexually Abused Sister

Lena Dunham is defending herself after a writer alleged she sexually abused her sister based on an excerpt from her new book.

This after in a write-up for National Review, Kevin D. Williamson cited a passage from Dunham's best-selling memoir in which she recalled touching her sister and called it "very disturbing behavior."

"One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina," Dunham wrote in 'Not That Kind of Girl'.

"She didn't resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked... My mother didn't bother asking why I had opened Grace's vagina. This was within the spectrum of things I did. She just on her knees and looked for herself."

"It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been a success."

Dunham immediately took to Twitter to respond and said: "The right wing news story that I molested my little sister isn't just LOL it's really f---ing upsetting and disgusting."

"And by the way, if you were a little kid and never looked at another little kid's vagina, well, congrats to you... Usually this is stuff I can ignore but don't demean sufferers, don't twist my words, back the f--- up bros. I told a story about being a weird 7 year old. I bet you have some too, old men, that I'd rather not hear."

"And yes, this is a rage spiral," she added. "Sometimes I get so mad I burn right up. Also I wish my sister wasn't laughing so hard."
