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.

    She is exhausting. Why can’t you just admit you made an ignorant remark, apologize and keep it moving. And what did bringing Michael B Jordan into it do? If any male had said he’d “dance himself” onto her, she’d scream sexual harassment.

    white celebs can’t even say how they feel rejected, cus they’re racist. Of course white people aren’t allowed to admit they have feelings cus lets face it they aren’t really people.. right?

    This woman is mentally and socially challenged. Does she think people sit at an event and think about her? For real?

    WTF does race have to do with her being an insecure, presumptuous prick, who can’t handle it when a man doesn’t pay attention to her? You’re the only one who made it about race, boo.

    I have been living in the US for five years, and it hurts that I am above average bodied woman no man seems into chatting with me.

    So now people have to apologize for white people if white people have assumptions on why am not interested to have a conversation with them?

    this is a perfect apology – thoughtful, heartfelt/sincere, and well-written. other celebrities should take notes on how open to criticism she is as well as her willingness to learn and accept full responsibility for her own mistakes. personal feelings and opinions of her aside, her humility is so refreshing compared to other celebrities who blindly offer half-assed publicist-penned “apologies” or just move forward denying any wrongdoing.

    and she is disgusting as fuck

    She’s just pissed because he didn’t ask her out for a date. Not everything is about you, Lena.

  • Maria

    So it’s normal in the US to not have a polite conversation at a dinner with people you are seated next to? Where I come from that would be considered bad manners.

  • Connor
