Lena Dunham issued an official statement following her Twitter "rage spiral” after she was accused of molesting her younger sister. The “Girls” actress/creator/writer was dismayed over the way some passages from her memoir “Not That Kind of Girl” were interpreted.

“I am dismayed over the recent interpretation of events described in my book ‘Not That Kind of Girl,’” she said in a statement to Time Tuesday. “First and foremost, I want to be very clear that I do not condone any kind of abuse under any circumstances. Childhood sexual abuse is a life-shattering event for so many, and I have been vocal about the rights of survivors. If the situations described in my book have been painful or triggering for people to read, I am sorry, as that was never my intention. I am also aware that the comic use of the term ‘sexual predator’ was insensitive, and I’m sorry for that as well.”

She added: “As for my sibling, Grace, she is my best friend, and anything I have written about her has been published with her approval.”

In her memoir, Dunham told a crude story about her younger sister Grace’s vagina. She also referred to herself as a sexual predator, an apparent joke that some people did not think was funny. After the criticism in recent days, Dunham canceled two appearances in Europe. Her current location on Twitter says that she’s “Bedridden.”

Her sister broke her silence Sunday and issued a series of tweets where she spoke about heteronormative behavior.

Dunham, 28, has not tweeted since she told her fans she would not appear in Belgium or Germany to promote the memoir.
