Dunham's name also cropped up in the headlines this week after Tessa Thompson, who attended a Time's Up meeting with Dunham ahead of the Golden Globes, called the actress' appearance a "surprise" and seemed to criticize her lack of involvement with the organization.
"Since I dyed my hair blue he sings a song about how I am a troll looking for some trolls snacks and troll friends and he's not wrong", she wrote.
Lena herself also shared an image of the group, writing: 'Humbled to stand alongside these unbelievable women and say #TIMESUP on systemic oppression, underrepresentation, discrimination, abuse and violence in all industries'.
While the coming days and months will likely be hard ones for Dunham, she's opened up about how exercise has helped he cope with difficulty in the past. "She's part of the problem".
Tessa Thompson has now released a statement saying: "I regret that my words were misinterpreted". "I've worked with Tessa and respect her artistry and admire her consistent candor".
'I support this initiative and the fight for gender justice and am really glad that the movement is growing, ' said one fan in the comments of the Instagram post which was later deleted.
She went on to say that the two actresses have spoken about it and she "knows my heart". But I, in no way, want to diminish Lena Dunham and her work, her voice, and her importance. It doesn't belong to any one. 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.
Mr Miller has denied the claims.
Dunham said in a series of tweets in November that she mistakenly thought Antonoff was going to propose. Things women don't lie about: rape, ' she wrote in August.
"It was amusing, the day that gay marriage became legal across this country, we were thrilled, we were celebrating, and then suddenly the texts just started coming - from our friends, from our mothers, from our exercise instructors being like, 'Finally, it's your time, '" Dunham explained.
