  • Tessa Thompson Calls Out Lena Dunham | IndieWire

"Is it appropriate to have Lena Dunham there when it was literally just a few weeks ago she said a young black woman lied about being raped by her employee/friend?" one person asked in the comments.

Girls star Lena Dunham and musician Jack Antonoff have confirmed, through reps, that they've split after five years together. And it comes after yet another massive misstep for Dunham and the particular brand of performative feminism she so often exhibits: when she accused Girls writer (and woman of colour) Aurora Perrineau of lying about her sexual assault. "I thought Jack was furtively planning a proposal to me with his sister and he just admitted I actually caught him "talking shit" about me!" she wrote.

"I support this initiative and the fight for gender justice and am really glad that the movement is growing", the user commented. It's perhaps more complex than that", the 34-year-old Thor: "Ragnarok actress tweeted in a lengthy statement.

Dunham responded to the critique with this statement to IndieWire: "I was honored to be invited to the meeting by a close friend and to observe the work that these wonderful women have been doing the past few months". "To those struggling with anxiety, OCD, depression: I know it's mad annoying when people tell you to exercise, and it took me about 16 medicated years to listen". I've worked with Tessa and respect her artistry and admire her consistent candor, ' Dunham added.

Then, things got a bit more unusual in November 2017 when Dunham posted this mini-thread to her Twitter.

We're all for unity in the face of sexual assault and harassment, but Dunham's background of defending alleged rapists may not make her the best spokesperson for this movement. It doesn't belong to any one. "That said, the people who join this movement without taking any kind of personal accountability for the ways in which their own words and decisions have helped to perpetuate the culture they are fighting against, that's hard for me to reconcile".
