Lena Dunham

Issues an apology

10 Dec, 2014

In an essay to Buzzfeed, Dunham apologizes to a man falsely identified as her attacker due to the name and description used in her book Not That Kind of Girl, which details the rape that occurred while she was in college. Dunham says ‘Barry’ is a pseudonym she used in the book to protect her attacker.

To be very clear, ‘Barry’ is a pseudonym, not the name of the man who assaulted me, and any resemblance to a person with this name is an unfortunate and surreal coincidence. I am sorry about all he has experienced.
