Lena Dunham Seemingly Responds to Recent Criticism

Lena Dunham did an Instagram Live earlier today where she seemingly addressed various stories about her, including Tessa Thompson‘s comments about her involvement in Time’s Up and her breakup with Jack Antonoff.

While she didn’t name any one situation directly, Lena said, “A lot of people were saying really sweet things to me on my Instagram and wanting to know how I was feeling. The thing that I wanted to say was just that, you know, when you’ve had this job for as long as I have, which is seven or eight years now, and you’ve caused some mayhem at times, the internet doesn’t necessarily have the same power that it used to.”

She continued, “When you’ve had this job for as long as I have, you love and admire and are so grateful for the people who show you care. You feel so much gratitude for the care and passion that’s shown to you by the people who admire your work and the rest of the people kind of melt away, because they’re pixels and you’ve got to know what’s in your own heart.”

“I just feel so lucky that I’ve gotten to be a part of so many amazing moments and movements in my career. And I feel really at peace with the fact that there are moments when you are the hero and moments when you are the villain and moments when you are magic and moments when you are less magic. You know what, it’s a journey that has strengthened me in ways that are really, really powerful,” Lena added.

Lena spoke about how she was wearing a ring given to her by Jack, adding, “I’ll always wear [it] because love is a really cool, eternal powerful, eternal thing. It doesn’t have to be defined the way we, in Western culture, define it — as beginning and ends. Things can be, ‘You’re a drop of water and you reenter the ocean.’”

    I take all of that to mean she won’t be listening to criticism. The same criticism that allows one to grow.

    The smartest thing for her is to just find another part of the business where we don’t have to see her or know her name. How does a person like her have fans?

    Lena, go stick your head in a hole and let it get stuck… Come back to us in 20 years and then talk about growing… you don’t know shit.

  • Mattie Kim

    Agreed. She’s a talented and creative artists, but everything that comes from her mouth is like DT… Just shut up for now.

    A molester has no business being anywhere but PRISON.

    She should be arrested for what she did to her OWN SISTER.

    And she wrote about it in a book for the world to see. She is a sick person. It amazing how they all think they’re so above everyone. Which the world does seem to give them a pass but I do hope karma gets her.
