Zinzi Clemmons, a writer for Lena Dunham and Jenny Konner's Lenny Letter, announced her resignation on Sunday in the wake of the women's statement in defense of "Girls" writer-producer Murray Miller, whom actress Aurora Perrineau has accused of rape.
"For all you writers who are outraged about what she did, I encourage you to do the same," Clemmons wrote in a statement posted on social media Sunday. "Especially women of color. She cannot have our words if she cannot respect us."
Dunham and Konner had defended Miller in a statement to Variety on Friday, saying, "While our first instinct is to listen to every woman’s story, our insider knowledge of Murray’s situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year."
