    Writer Zinzi Clemmons quit contributing to Lena Dunham’s newsletter “Lenny Letter” after the “Girls” creator faced harsh criticism for defending Murray Miller, who was accused of sexual assault by actress Aurora Perrineau. In her public resignation letter, Clemmons accused Dunham of “hipster racism,” and called on other writers of color to stop contributing to the newsletter as well. “As a result of Lena Dunham’s statements, I have decided that I will no longer write for Lenny Letter,” Clemmons said in a Facebook post on Saturday. “For all you writers who are outraged about what she did, I encourage you to...

    “Girls” star Lena Dunham on Friday came to the defense of a pal and producer who was accused of raping a 17-year-old actress. Dunham and her co-showrunner Jenni Konner took the side of Murray Miller after actress Aurora Perrineau filed a police report against him — claiming she woke up while he was having intercourse with her in 2012. “While our first instinct is to listen to every woman’s story, our insider knowledge of Murray’s situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year,” Dunham and Konner wrote...

He was on top of me having sexual intercourse with me. At no time did I consent to any sexual contact with Murray,” she said in a statement...

    Lena Dunham came to the defense of a “Girls” writer accused of rape on Friday, and some Twitter users have called her out for choosing to support the alleged perpetrator over his female accuser. “Never call yourself an advocate for women again because you’ve just proven that you are NOT,” one user wrote. Several others dug up a tweet of Dunham’s from August in which she said women do not lie about rape. The backlash came after Dunham spoke out against actress Aurora Perrineau, who filed a police report on Friday saying she did not consent to sex with “Girls”...

    Just when you think leftists couldn’t possibly sink any lower, they break out a shovel. That’s what this week was like – an endless cycle of left-wingers reaching new lows. Normal people would be embarrassed, ashamed even, but the bubble in which these people function is sealed so tightly that oxygen depravation and the accompanying delusions has become their whole world. And in that world, fascism rules.The week started with actress, spoiled rich kid, and awful human being Lena Dunham deciding to “report” to American Airlines that two of its employees allegedly had a conversation the 31-year-old brat did not approve...

The "Girls" creator said her flight on another airline was delayed for hours Wednesday at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport. Dunham, 31, wrote that the "worst part of this night" waiting at the airport came when she overheard two American Airlines' "attendants having a transphobic talk." "At this moment in history we should be teaching our employees about love and inclusivity @AmericanAir," she added in a subsequent tweet. "That was worst part of this night." Dunham...

    If there’s one thing Lena Dunham takes as seriously as her acting, writing, and directing career, her undying love for Lisa Simpson, or being an advocate for ladies everywhere attempting to regrow their sparse, patchy eyebrows, it’s undoubtedly her passion for women’s rights and equality, a cause she has become increasingly vocal about since the last presidential election. So when the Girls star decided it was time to purge her wardrobe, it makes sense that she would want to do so for a good cause, teaming up with Planned Parenthood to make sure that new dress you buy straight out...

    If you haven’t heard this yet, the sorry excuse known as Lena Dunham has created yet another “micro-scandal” by sending her dog back to a shelter after four years. She said that “after four years of challenging behavior and aggression that could not be treated with training or medication or consistent loving dog ownership, Lamby went to live at an amazing professional facility in Los Angeles”. But this is a lie. She is so determined to maintain her public persona that she spins webs of deceit; unfortunately for her, others are not willing to uphold her deception. She said:” after...

    Lena Dunham is back, and she has a bunch of her celebrity friends helping her fight for abortion and Planned Parenthood again. Dunham’s “Lenny Letter” blog produced a short video this week urging people to call their U.S. Senators and tell them to support the No. 1 abortion business in the nation, according to The Wrap. U.S. Senate leaders announced plans to consider a bill next week to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal and replace Obamacare. The U.S. House already passed a bill. The House version of the bill would eliminate more than $390 million (about 86 percent) of the...

She later added playful shots on the red carpet including one captioned “fatal attraction,” featuring her lurking behind pop heartthrob Joe Jonas.

    Trump holds such power over the Left that it is a little scary to contemplate. It actually started before the election, when liberals simply contemplated the possibility of Trump: As that reality sets in, a hallucinatory sense of slow-motion doom is descending on many liberals. (Though not only on liberals.) Victims of Trump-induced anxiety describe nightmares, insomnia, digestive problems, and headaches. Therapists find themselves helping their patients through a process that feels less like an election than a national nervous breakdown. So you can imagine the depth of their despair when Trump was actually elected. In addition to their normal...

    She recently attributed her weight loss to Donald Trump's presidency - citing 'soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness' in helping her slim down. And Lena Dunham proved the Trump diet is working a treat as she showcased her incredibly slimline new frame at the opening of mentor Tracy Anderson's studio in New York on Wednesday. The Girls star, 30, looked thrilled to be flaunting her firmer form as she hammed it up with aplomb on the red carpet, at one point showing off her mobile phone after receiving a video call from fellow Anderson disciple Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Four McDonald's restaurants in the South Bay are testing out a new sandwich on their menu. It's called the McDonald’s Crab Sandwich. McDonald’s wanted to continue experimenting with local Bay Area flavors just like the garlic fries they introduced back in May. The Crab Sandwich will have snow crab meat on a sliced sourdough bun. When asked why McDonald's is using snow crab and not local Dungeness, McDonald's said: "The McDonald’s sourcing team had to weigh a variety of different factors when they approached how and where they were sourcing crab." The sandwich also comes with celery and seasoned mayo...

    Lena Dunham has Donald Trump to thank for her recent weight loss. “Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food,” Dunham, 30, told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM show Monday (via Entertainment Weekly). The actress, who has long been criticized for her body image, continued, “Everyone’s been asking like, ‘What have you been doing?’ And I’m like, ‘Try soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness and you, too, will lose weight.” She admitted to Stern that initially Trump winning the election “seemed like an impossible joke” that “would never happen,” adding that she told herself, “the most...

    Lena Dunham stirred up controversy during a recent episode of her podcast by saying she wishes she’d had an abortion. While hosting Women of the Hour, the Girls creator recalled a visit to a Texas Planned Parenthood years ago, during which a girl asked her to share her experience with abortion. “I sort of jumped. ‘I haven’t had an abortion,’ I told her. I wanted to make it really clear to her that, as much as I was going out and fighting for other women’s options, I myself had never had an abortion,”recalled Dunham, 30. “And I realized then that...
