    Considering she is the most radioactive actress in Hollywood right now. Self-inflicted, I might add.  She brought this on herself.

    Not really getting into this, but young people do immature/stupid things when they are figuring out their sexuality. 

    Nothing new.

    I have read the book, unlike, I suspect, most people who are forming an opinion of this. Based on what is in the book, this kind of reaction is completely insane.

    What does this have to do with awards again?

    It sounds like this is being blown way out of proportion, according to Dunham and her sister. I also think it will be forgotten come Emmy time and probably come Girls premiere time.

    This is so dumb. I read the book and didn’t bat an eye at this part. The media is absolutely insane sometimes (read: most of the time). Lena is talented and deserves to be recognized based on her work, not on stupid, innane things that the public and media completely blow out of proportion.

    This is a dumb controversy, and it won’t affect Lena Dunham’s Emmy prospects for “Girls” next year.

    I mean she wrote
    and fetishized her repeated emotional abuse towards her sister that involved
    creepy physical elements that are not within normal boundaries, plus dragging
    this into the public light and humiliating her sister in the process. Not to
    mention that her sister has stated before that Lena takes on her personal
    experiences as her own and it makes her feel violated. This girl did all of
    this for a cheap laugh which only proves how uninventive she is, always relying
    on awkward situations to be humourous. I’m all for separating the art from the
    artist but I’m pretty sure she deserves a bit of the backlash she’s receiving.

    Have you read her book? I find it hard to believe that anyone who actually had would characterize it in the way you did.

    Seriously. People need to take these sticks out of their asses. The book was heartfelt and humorous, and I doubt she intended for it to come across as creepy/violating. Again, this is just the way people who aren’t fans of her like to characterize her work. l.

    I think she’s a pervert. If this acts were perpetrated by a man everybody would be mad as hell.  HBO should kill this awful show.

    It was poorly worded, at best. The “sexual predator” comment was pretty stupid, if you ask me. Regardless of who she is, the backlash is warranted. I’m a kind of person that will come after you for your actions, not because of who you are. So, she’s an actress and people like her work. So what? It doesn’t make us dirtbags for criticising her words and actions. Get over yourselves. The less people do stupid things, the less we’ll blast them for it.

    If she follows up on her lawsuit, she’ll get blasted in court.
