Lena Dunham Makes Statement Following HBO Max's 'Generation' Animal Dissection Scene

Lena Dunham is speaking out following the uproar about one particular scene in HBO Max’s Genera+ion series.

The scene in question shows students dissecting real cat corpses that takes place in a high school biology class, Variety reported.

HBO Max later confirmed what happened, which saw two of the extras leaving due to their discomfort.

Lena, who is an executive producer on the show, made a statement on the situation, saying, “I am committed in my life and work to the principled, humane and ethical treatment of animals. I don’t use animal cadavers in any of my work, ever, and I was not on set or aware that they were used in a recently shot scene depicting a biology classroom assignment.”

After the network revealed that the scene would be edited out of the show, Lena added, “I fully support the scene being edited out of the show.”

An HBO Max spokesperson also noted that they “deeply regret that this occurred.”

Genera+ion depicts the unfiltered experiences of high school students and is drawn from many formative moments in the lives of the show’s writers. The production recently filmed scenes depicting a biology classroom assignment involving dissection of animal specimens. These were ethically sourced in consultation with American Humane via a biological supply company that works with schools,” it shared.

It also noted that “everyone [in the scene] involved was informed in advance that this would be a sensitive scene involving a real dissection; the assistant directors checked in regularly with all participants on set, and two background actors who expressed discomfort were released with full pay.”

Genera+ion is expected to premiere in the springtime.

Lena Dunham Reveals She Underwent IVF: 'None of My Eggs Were Viable'

Lena Dunham has revealed that she underwent in vitro fertilization and discovered that none of her eggs were viable.

“I learned that none of my eggs were viable on Memorial Day, in the midst of a global pandemic,” the 34-year-old actress wrote in an essay for Harper‘s Magazine. “I was in Los Angeles when I got the call from Dr. Coperman, the slight Jewish man who was my entry into (and now exit from) the world of corporate reproduction.”

“‘We were unable to fertilize any of the eggs,’” Lena recalled her doctor telling her. “‘As you know, we had six. Five did not take. The one that did seems to have chromosomal issues and ultimately … ‘ He trailed off as I tried to picture it — the dark room, the glowing dish, the sperm meeting my dusty eggs so violently that they combusted. It was hard to understand that they were gone.”

“This journey has forced me to rethink what motherhood will look like,” Lena told People in a follow up interview. “IVF destroyed my body — as a woman who tends towards rampant endometriosis, filling my body with estrogen … and because of what my body has been through, subjecting it to such excruciating pain, only to come to the end and learn those eggs were not viable after working so hard through illness and discomfort and going through anxiety and depression, it is just clearly not something I can ever repeat.” She added that she had explored adoption before learning she could go through IVF to possibly have a biological child.

“My entire career, the thing that has felt like a driving factor for me in many ways has been this thought of, ‘What can I do to normalize challenging topics that many women may feel like they are alone in experiencing but are actually universal and yet women have been made to feel shameful about?’ ” she said. “Never has been that truer than in grappling with my infertility and the loss of my fertility, and the pain and the shame that came with it.”

Lena has always been very open about her personal experiences and she recently spoke out about her symptoms while fighting COVID-19.

Lena Dunham Details The Symptoms She Had While Affected With Coronavirus

Lena Dunham has revealed on her Instagram that she had COVID-19 coronavirus back in March.

The 34-year-old entertainer wrote to her fans on the platform about her experience with the virus.

“The fact is, the Coronavirus kills people. We know that. But it will also alter the bodies and lived experiences of so many who are infected, in ways they could never have predicted,” she wrote in her lengthy post, alongside a selfie with her wearing a mask.

Lena went on, sharing all the symptoms she had experienced through it all, citing she had “achy joints”, among other things.

While she was already used to dealing with chronic pain, she “didn’t freak out.”

“But the pain was soon joined by an impossible, crushing fatigue. Then, a fever of 102. Suddenly my body simply…revolted,” Lena shared, saying that she also had difficulty breathing and pounding headaches, numbness, difficulty sleeping and and a loss of taste and smell.

“This went on for 21 days, days that blended into each other like a rave gone wrong,” Lena wrote. “I was lucky enough to have a doctor who could offer me regular guidance on how to care for myself and I never had to be hospitalized.”

Lena Dunham Speaks Out After People Call Out Her Privilege in Hollywood

Lena Dunham had a pretty easy time launching her career in Hollywood and she totally recognizes that fact.

The 34-year-old actress noticed she was trending on Twitter this weekend after BIPOC filmmakers and actors were retweeting one of her quotes and sharing their own experiences in the industry.

The tweet was from The Hollywood Reporter and read, “.@LenaDunham was 23 when she sold #Girls to HBO with a page-and-a-half-long pitch, without a character nor a plot.”

People called out Lena for having an easy time making it big in Hollywood while BIPOC artists are often overlooked or not paid equally for their work.

Lena noticed all the tweets and said, “Whenever I find out I’m trending, I have to immediately check if I’m alive! Then, I try and see if there’s a constructive dialogue to have on Twitter. Often there isn’t, but today there really WAS. It actually wasn’t a dialogue – it was just me agreeing that the Hollywood system is rigged in favor of white people and that my career took off at a young age with relative ease, ease I wasn’t able to recognize because I also didn’t know what privilege was. The past ten years have been a series of lessons. The lesson now? Sit down. Shut up, unless it’s to advocate for change for Black people. Listen. Make art in private for awhile- no one needs your book right now lady. Give reparations widely. Defund the police. Rinse & repeat.”

Lena recently opened up about the interesting project she has been working on during quarantine.
