Lena Dunham is a hot topic on Twitter currently with a sizeable amount of people talking about her. Dunham tasted fame with her HBO show 'Girls' and she spoke about how she pitched it to the network in a 2017 interview. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter back then, Dunham had said that she sold the show to HBO with a page-and-a-half-long pitch without a character or plot. That interview sparked a lot of debates back then, and now the Internet has again revisited it while shaming her. She is the daughter of artistes Carroll Dunham and Laurie Simmons, who are well connected in Hollywood according to fans. The Internet has slammed the actress and producer, calling her success a result of nepotism.

"Every single headline about Lena Dunham’s success should include a disclaimer that her parents are some of the most connected artists in New York and that she’s cousins with the Tiffany family (yes, *those* Tiffany’s)," read a comment. While another user wrote, "I have a master's degree in film and teach film at a top tier university, An over twenty-five-year professional career and I walk into pitches with a fully realized bible pilot and seven-season arc, and often times told it’s not enough. But Lena Dunham, cool". Another user wrote, "@lenadunham has Daddy's money, so yeah. That's why someone with no talent, no integrity, and a sexual predator to boot, made it in Hollywood."

In 2014, Dunham had released a memoir titled Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned', after which she was slammed for child abuse. A particular passage in the book read, "One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn't resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked. My mother came running. 'Mama, Mama! Grace has something in there!' My mother didn't bother asking why I had opened Grace's vagina. This was within the spectrum of things I did. She just got on her knees and looked for herself. It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been a success".

Airing their criticism of Durham's book, a user wrote, "Actually Lena we didn't need your book ever because it celebrated sexually assaulting a child." While another read, "Does anyone else remember when Lena Dunham wrote about when she groomed her little sister into sexual activities by bribing her with candy or was that just me." Dunham was working on releasing a new book this year. After she saw herself trending on Twitter, she acknowledged it in a Twitter thread along with the news that she'd now be postponing her book release.

"Whenever I find out I’m trending, I have to immediately check if I’m alive! Then, I try and see if there’s a constructive dialogue to have on Twitter. Often there isn’t, but today there really WAS," read her first tweet. She followed it up with, "It actually wasn’t a dialogue - it was just me agreeing that the Hollywood system is rigged in favor of white people and that my career took off at a young age with relative ease, the ease I wasn’t able to recognize because I also didn’t know what privilege was." She also wrote that she's used her time in the industry learning her lessons and that she'd use her voice to advocate change for Black people. "The past ten years have been a series of lessons. The lesson now? Sit down. Shut up, unless it’s to advocate for change for Black people. Listen. Make art in private for a while- no one needs your book right now lady. Give reparations widely. Defund the police. Rinse & repeat," read her last tweet.

lol at that last paragraph. yeah, you waltzed into hollywood because you're white, not because you're a well-connected aristocrat. defund the police so the poors can kill each other in peace.

if this doesn't show you what BLM and race-baiting are really about, nothing will. bring out the guillotines.

True Lena Dunham story.

My friend is a bartender in NYC and Lena comes in with a friend, they're sitting at a table.

She overhears Lena say "I've been learning how to sound poor for" a role.

Lmao.

I didn't have the energy to read past the first ¶ but I will say this:

while I find her grating on a personal level and didn't much like what little I saw of her tv show, I think the tread is pretty much worn bare on xo's favorite Lena Dunham line of attack, which now I guess is getting traction w other media.

"omg she's ONLY famous because her parents are ARTISTS ... her parents are WELL KNOWN in the New York ART SCENE, did'ja know that!??!" is manifestly weak. first, this same line of hyper generalized bare bones "PRIVILEGE!!!!!11 full stop!" criticism applies with similar force to most successful people in Hollywood--yeah it helps having a relative 'in the business' to get your script pulled off a huge pile and actually looked at. that's true of basically all industries, though, and when the shoe's on the other foot xo poas actively recoil at the suggestion that the bulk of their life outcomes can be explained by mere reference to their 'privilege' of having been a legacy applicant, or that they had an uncle at V25 firm in tertiary city who could call the firm-wide hiring partner and get a 'plus' note in their file going into their interview w/ V25 NYC firm at PEnn OCI.

second, it falsely equates an indisputably complex process--LD's managing to get a scripted TV show pitched to a prestige network, then ordered to pilot, then ordered to series, then continuously picked up as a series for (idk) 4+ seasons at least that were (relatively) popular with audiences and critics--with a comparatively simpler one--getting a script/treatment pulled from the stack or getting the initial pitch itself on someone's calendar. yeah, I'm sure her parents notoriety helped compared to her just cold mailing TV executives, but the idea that HBO would invest. at considerable, expense in green lighting, casting, producing, promoting, and renewing a scripted show in their primetime Sunday block JUST because the the 21 year old just-graduated Oberlin bitch it's attached to has a daddy who's 'famous' among the MFH glitterati set for his faggy abstract expressionism collages or whatever, just doesn't pass the laugh test.

if you want to criticize her, why not criticize her for being an obnoxious cunt, given that there's a sizable body of evidence that she actually IS an obnoxious cunt, and all. I think that attack can be supported but it's a far cry from claiming someone is utterly without talent or skill because having some low-rent ersatz Warhol for a daddy is obviously ALL it takes to be a successful Hollywood showrunner. that's as lazy as saying Trump building his businesses into a billion-dollar international household brand name is, really, no accomplishment at all, but rather an effortless and foregone conclusion because his dad had achieved some (lesser) degree of success in the real estate business.

granted, it's probably not worth the time it took me to point this out in a lengthy screed, but I just find this a very obnoxious (xo poas quotemo kind of attack no matter who's on the receiving end. I guess that kind of cheap pumo-style heckling just grinds my gears for some reason.

CR but “eat the rich” journalism and class warfare generally is on a huge upswing. the writer is more likely calculating than misinformed. but as you point out, the annoying part is XO2020 is so dumb that they immediately start jerking off over this kind of glorified blogging because they mistakenly think the false narrative is some kind of cultural validation.

It actually is in the first few seasons. Similar to what PN screeded above, although I hate her politics she really captures the spirit of her fucked up generation and pulled off a masterful show regardless of how she pitched it. The “you didn’t build that” crowd of course ignores that it took top .001% talent to do that when no one else was that creative. And if you watch Girls, you would understand why it wouldn’t make sense to pitch it with a huge, fleshed out script. It’s basically her stream of consciousness and probably would have ruined the flow and dialogue of the show to have scripted it out years in advance.

Anyway, I really fucking hate Lena Dunham so it makes me sick to say it but these idiots are off base.

CR. I think the first season does a good job of capturing the zeitgeist of c. 2011-2012 white Brooklyn. A nice cultural artifact.

Then in literally the first scene of season 2 she has a BBC inside of her.

But for one brief moment a glimpse of an earlier America was created and preserved.
