Lena Dunham Explains Why She's Not Moving to Canada

Lena Dunham is not leaving the Unites States, despite Donald Trump being elected President.

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?”

    Just saw a few nice comments about this on social media. Some «good samaritans» said that if she refuse to move to Canada, then they will help our country to get rid of her. Well, good luck to them :)

    Why do u read an entertainment site when everyone in the arts is liberal? Why do u think everyone in the arts is liberal, they understand humanity better than adults who have never seen the world. Not your fault your parents abused you tho. REad the book they f*** you up. It’ll help. It shoulda been Bernie….
