Lena Dunham lashes out at allegations she abused her sister

Lena Dunham has reacted angrily to claims that she sexually assaulted her younger sister.

In an article published by right-wing blog Truth Revolt on Thursday entitled "Lena Dunham Describes Sexually Abusing Her Little Sister", the writer cites a passage from the 28-year-old author's new book 'Not That Kind Of Girl' claiming that it describes the star conducting an inappropriate act at the age of seven, on her one-year-old sister, Grace Dunham.

The excerpt reads: "Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn't resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked.

"It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there."

However, the 'Girls' creator has furiously denied the accusations, branding them "disgusting".

Taking to her twitter account on Saturday evening, she wrote: "The right wing news story that I molested my little sister isn't just LOL- it's really f**king 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**k 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. (sic)"

She ended the series of messages by revealing that her sister, now aged 22, had found the whole situation to be hilarious.

She added: "Sometimes I get so mad I burn right up. Also I wish my sister wasn't laughing so hard. (sic)"
