Lena Dunham Explains Why She's Not Moving to Canada
The 30-year-old Girls star and creator took to Instagram to clear up her stance.
“Today I received a letter (yes, on paper) that read ‘don’t let the door hit you on the ass when you cross the border into Canada.’ This is actually one of the more polite notes I’ve gotten recently, and I’ll survive it just fine,” Lena wrote. “And you know what else I’ve realized I can survive, as a Jewish pro-choice sexual assault survivor with a queer family member and a belief that we are all exactly & beautifully equal?”
She continued, “I can survive staying in this country, MY country, to fight and live and use my embarrassment of blessings to do what’s right. It’s easy to joke about moving to Canada. It’s harder to see, and to love, the people who fill your mailbox with hate. It’s harder to see what needs to be done and do it. It’s harder to live, fully and painfully aware of the injustice surrounding us, to cherish and fear your country all at once. But I’m willing to try. Will you try with me?”
