At this point, almost everyone knows the disturbing tale that Lena Dunham, Girls actress and one of Taylor Swift‘s best friends, shared in her book, Not That Kind of Girl. “I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open vagina,” the 30-year-old star remembered about a time years ago when she sexually violated her little sister. Lena obviously didn’t see a problem with including this memory in her autobiography, but MILLIONS of people did — she literally admitted to molesting a child. The self-proclaimed feminist has since apologized, but still lost tons of fans because of it. One supporter that stuck around? Troian Bellisario.

The drama started when the Pretty Little Liars star shared an article from Lena’s website about how sexual predators deserve to be seriously punished for their crimes. While people obviously agreed with her sentiment wholeheartedly, one person couldn’t help but point out what LD herself admitted to doing to her sis. The 31-year-old didn’t believe what the fan was saying, however, and responded that she would block her for spewing “lies…without any evidence.”

Although social media users bombarded her with messages that there WAS, in fact, evidence supporting the fan’s claims, Troian still didn’t seem to believe them and said the tale was taken out of context.

Eventually, the PLL girl took the time to read the passage, but still defended Lena because she’s an “advocate on ever level for victims of sexual abuse.”

Fans tried their best to explain the problems with Lena’s quotes AND Troian’s defense, which the latter eventually took to heart and apologized for speaking without being totally informed.

Do you accept Troian’s apology?

Celebrity abusers ALWAYS get support — these 12 guys still have tons of fans despite domestic assault accusations:


Chris Brown

While Breezy's most well-known incident of violence against a woman happened on the night of the 2009 Grammy Awards when he beat up his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, that is hardly the only example.

Chris was charged with battery after photos surfaced of the "Needed Me" singer's face badly bruised and he even issued a public apology. However, his violence didn't end there. In June 2013, a club goer accused the rapper of shoving her to the ground. In September 2015, another woman claimed he physically pushed her off of his tour bus for refusing to give up her cell phone. In January 2016, yet again a female said he assaulted her, this time a punch in the face for trying to take a photo with him. His violent act towards a woman in August 2016, however, is the one that became a media frenzy.

Apparently, the 27-year-old threatened a woman inside of his home with a gun during a standoff with the Los Angeles Police Department. In a statement about that particular incident, Chris said, "My character's been defaced and who I am as a person and my integrity." (P.S. his 'integrity' has already been called into question because of his history of violence).

What's even more disturbing is that despite all of these violent allegations, he's won several Grammys, BET Awards and Billboard Music Awards, continues to be invited to award shows and Hollywood parties, and collaborates with other hit makers. Maybe the REAL issue is that people keep buying his tracks and financially supporting the charged assaulter, despite his cruel tendencies.

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp was considered one of the "good guys" until news broke that he physically assaulted his wife, Amber Heard in May. Despite photos that revealed facial bruises, a video that showed the Pirates star having a violent tantrum and a witness testimony from iO Tillet Wright (from MTV's Suspect), Amber was branded a "gold digger," who just wanted to get more money out of the divorce settlement.

The pair eventually released a statement saying their "relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm."

Having no intent for physical harm does not get the assailant off the hook and yet in this case, it seems to have done just that. Just months after the incident, Johnny was given the People's Choice Award for Favorite Movie Icon, showing yet again that Hollywood DGAF if you're accused of beating up women, as long as you're talented.

Michael Fassbender

In 2010, Sunawin Andrews accused her boyfriend, Michael Fassbender, of brutally beating her up. In her police report, she claimed the actor broke her nose by throwing her over a chair during a night of drinking and also dragged her outside of their car during an argument over one of her exes, which caused her to rupture an ovarian cyst, twist her ankle and hurt her kneecap.

While Sunawin initially said she feared for her life, she chose to withdraw charges, apparently afraid that the allegations would hurt her boyfriend's career (which, as we know, isn't typically the case anyways).

Since this happened in 2010, he's received several Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations, along with landing major Hollywood roles like one in the X-Men franchise.

Sean Penn

Does anyone even remember that Sean Penn and pop icon Madonna were married once? Maybe we all tried to block it out of our memories because of how effing awful it was. His long list of alleged abuse towards her started in 1987 when the singer was hospitalized after being hit over the head with a baseball bat, but never pressed charges. Two years later, reports surfaced that the famous actor had allegedly tied her up in their living room for nine hours, beating her, forcing her to perform sexual acts on him and threatening to cut off her hair. While he was initially charged with felony domestic assault after the "Material Girl" singer went to the police, she decided again to drop the charges. The couple split shortly after.

Even so, he's gone on to land big-time acting gigs and has even snagged himself a couple Academy Awards for Best Actor, Golden Globe Awards and Critics Choice Awards, too. Basically, he's killing the acting game — and that nine hour possible hostage situation was just a blip considering his *impressive career.*

Alec Baldwin

No matter how hilarious you think his Donald Trump impersonations on Saturday Night Live are, you can't deny the fact that Alec Baldwin is problematic AF. The 30 Rock star has not only made homophobic and racist remarks publicly, but he also was accused by his ex-wife, Kim Basinger, of domestic violence. During their divorce, the singer-actress claimed that Alec threatened to murder her with a baseball bat during one of their fights.

Nicolas Cage

Nic Cage may be somewhat of a joke, but his assault allegations are no laughing matter. In 2011, he was arrested in New Orleans on suspicion of domestic abuse battery. Several witnesses reported seeing the star forcefully grab his wife's arm while looking clearly intoxicated, but eventually all charges were dropped.

John Lennon

This Beatles guy is one of the most beloved musicians in history, but that does not change the fact that he had admittedly assaulted women. "All that, 'I used to be cruel to my woman, I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved,' was me. I used to be cruel to my woman, and physically — any woman. I was a hitter. I couldn't express myself and I hit. I fought men and I hit women," he told Playboy in 1980.

His first wife, Cynthia, corroborated this in her book where she says he slapped her across the face in a bout of jealous rage. It's also reported that the "Imagine" singer emotionally abused his son and nearly killed a man during a drunken fit, too.

Dr. Dre

Andre Romelle Young received widespread critical acclaim for his film Straight Outta Compton, which was a timely biographical film that explored the rap group N.W.A., as well as some commentary on police brutality in America. However, after it was released, some started to realize that quite a bit was omitted from the doc — particularly relating to Dre's abusive relationship with Michel'le.

The victim herself said to Vlad TV, "Why would Dre put me in it? I mean 'cause if they start from where they start from I was just a quiet girlfriend who got beat up and told to shut up." Dee Barnes posted an article to Gawker titled, "Here's What's Missing From Straight Outta Compton: Me and the Other Women Dr. Dre Beat Up."

The rapper himself responded to the accusations saying, "I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives." Apple Inc., the company that owns Beats by Dre, still continues to sell his products saying, "He's said that he's not the same person that he was 25 years ago."

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson has a bad history when it comes to violence against women. Not only did his marriage to Robin Givens end after she cited physical spousal abuse (he, of course, claimed that she was just a gold digger), but he's also a convicted rapist who served time in prison after he sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman in 1991.

Still, he's continued to be a well-respected professional boxer and actor, even appearing in popular films like The Hangover.

Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson may be a major d-bag, but people still looooove his films. He used the N-word in tapes that were released to the public, has referred to Latinx people as disgusting slurs, has been called into question for his antisemitic viewpoints, AND was accused of abusing his ex-wife.

Oksana Grigorieva said the actor punched her in the face, causing several broken teeth when they were married. She has said these types of incidents have happened "more than once." In the leaked tapes where Mel uses racial slurs, he also insults his ex-wife for getting plastic surgery and slut-shames her for her fashion choices.

Bill Murray

The A Very Murray Christmas star has kept his abuse allegations fairly under wraps. Jennifer Butler, his former wife, alleged that she was a victim of "abusive behavior, physical abuse ... [and] frequent abandonment," which forced her to leave her husband after nine years of marriage. She also claimed the actor once told her she was "lucky he didn't kill her," according to the Charleston Post and Courier. During their legal processes, Jennifer also asked for a restraining order, clearly fearing for her safety due to her volatile relationship with the popular comedian.

Gary Busey

Unless you're an avid Dancing With the Stars fan (or maybe a watcher of Celebrity Big Brother?), then you probably don't even know who Gary Busey is. While originally famous for his blockbuster films, it seems the only thing keeping him relevant nowadays are his contracts to be on reality TV shows — which come despite his history of alleged spousal and sexual abuse.

In 1999, the actor's wife, Tiani Warden, called authorities and said she was assaulted by her husband, which opened up an investigation of misdemeanor spousal battery.
