Seemingly out of nowhere Girls star Lena Dunham has found herself being accused of “racism.” But this isn’t the traditional “she hates Black people” racist accusation, no. This is the 2017 version.

People reports a writer, Zinzi Clemons, for Dunham’s Lenny Letters took to her Facebook and Twitter accounts to announce that she’s leaving Lena’s newsletter and accused the controversial actress of “hipster racism.”


Ok, before we get to the rest of the story, hipster is not a race. No one’s born with a man-bun or beard in flannel clothing. A better notion would’ve been “hipster bias” or maybe even “hipster prejudice,” but “hipster racism” is not and should not be a thing.

From the context of Zinzi’s post we understand what she meant by this but it’s only a matter of time before someone out there begins to define hipster as it’s own nationality or something. Just sayin’. Don’t do it.

Clemmons then called on her fellow sisters to turn their backs on Lena when she wrote, “It is time for women of color — black women in particular — to divest from Lena Dunham.”

Are women of color really invested in Lena Dunham like that?

Zinzi also recalls how there once was a girl in Lena’s group who would constantly use the “N” word and Dunham would brush off the use of the word as “a joke.”

But for Clemmons the straw that broke the camel’s back came when Lena sprung to the defense of Murray Miller, who was accused of sexual assault by actress Aurora Perrineau saying, “One of my best friends was victimized in almost the exact same way by someone in Lena’s circle. It was never addressed, and he continues to move in those circles and has a powerful job.”

For the most part many of us have known that Lena Dunham has always been, for lack of a better word, a burger. But now that her own girls are peeping game, it could spell doom for her credibility as a progressive woman in the entertainment game.

Check out the full statement below and let us know if you still fux with Lena Dunham.
