Dunham wrote in her memoir that when she was seven years old "curiosity got the best of me" and she examined her then year-old sister in an inappropriate way.

While stressing that she is not defending Josh Duggar's behavior, Sarah Palin wrote on Facebook: "The media suggest Lena Dunham's sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she's rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family."
