There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and Lena Dunham weighing in on something that makes us all cringe. She supported a cause at her alma mater that said serving Asian food in dining halls is cultural appropriation, and she also threw Odell Beckham under the bus for not talking to her at a dinner despite the fact that he probably had no idea who she was. Talented writer? Yes. Talented director? Sure. Universally loved by many? No. Not by any stretch of the imagination.
Dunham has also been a longtime supporter of the Clinton campaign. And while I’m not sure whether she’s more supportive of Clinton’s values or if she just wants a female president, that doesn’t matter – she’s attached herself to Clinton like ants on a log and even spoke at the Democratic National Convention in support of her nomination. But now, it’s becoming evident that not even everyone in the Clinton camp wants her on their side.
Like or hate Lena Dunham, fair is fair and the statement that she is like “nails on a chalkboard” is fair. Her show, Girls has been up for (and even won a couple) Emmys, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t somewhat intolerable from time to time. I mean, just Google “lena dunham book sister” and see how you feel after that. Politics aside, the last thing you want tagging along with you is some annoying person who chimes in about everything while ripping Asian food out of your hands. .
