Lena Dunham usually gets promptly ignored around these parts, but the slander is too funny not to comment. The writer, actress, director and alleged feminist basically tried to throw Odell Beckham Jr. under the bus because he didn’t want to smash.
Dunham and Amy Schumer recently interviewed each other and the Internets quickly pointed out the audacity of one particular moment.
Reports E! News:
Agreeing with Schumer about how miserable the 2016 Met Gala was for them, Dunham relayed how New York Giants star Odell Beckham Jr. was at her table, and he seemed “confused” by her.
“…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.
“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,'” Dunham added, imagining the football star’s reaction to her appearance.
Apparently Dunham can read minds. But just maybe, Beckham Jr. gave no f*cks about her regardless of what she looked like? Did she consider that?
Duham copped pleas, but nobody cared—damage done.
So right now Twitter has united to charbroil Dunham because…why not? Always polarizing—remember when Yeezy’s video made her uncomfortable?—the social media peanut gallery is making sure to get their licks in, citing everything from white privilege to racism to entitlement.
