Lena Dunham Clarifies Odell Beckham Jr. Comments After Saying He Ignored Her at Met Gala

Lena Dunham was one of the many stars at the Met Gala this year and she is opening up about how she felt ignored by tablemate Odell Beckham Jr.

The topic came up in Lena‘s Lenny Letter interview with Amy Schumer when the ladies were discussing the latter’s decision to leave the esteemed event early.

“I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards. He was like, ‘That’s a marshmallow. That’s a child. That’s a dog.’ It wasn’t mean – he just seemed confused,” Lena said in the interview. “The vibe was very much like, ‘Do I want to f–k it? Is it wearing a … yep, it’s wearing a tuxedo. I’m going to go back to my cell phone.’ It was like we were forced to be together, and he literally was scrolling Instagram rather than have to look at a woman in a bow tie. I was like, ‘This should be called the Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes.’”

Lena faced some criticism after the interview was released for making assumptions about Odell without actually speaking to him. She later took to Twitter to clarify comments.
