Lena Dunham is once again speaking out in response to accusations that she molested her younger sister, Grace Dunham.

In an exclusive statement to Time, the Girls star further explained, "I am dismayed over the recent interpretation of events described in my book Not That Kind of Girl. First and foremost, I want to be very clear that I do not condone any kind of abuse under any circumstances."

She continued, "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."

Dunham also added that her sister, who voiced her own opinion on the matter yesterday, fully supports her.

"As for my sibling, Grace, she is my best friend, and anything I have written about her has been published with her approval."

Grace broke her silence on Twitter, writing, ""heteronormativity deems certain behaviours harmful, and others "normal"; the state and media are always invested in maintaining that As a queer person: i'm committed to people narrating their own experiences, determining for themselves what has and has not been harmful." And, 2day, like every other day, is a good day to think about how we police the sexualities of young women, queer, and trans people."
