Wow, it’s only the fourth day of 2017 and it’s already really hard to be Lena Dunham. (We’re being sarcastic, of course).
The Girls actress, a show most noted for its privileged all-white cast, recently debuted her new Glamour cover along her costars and the people have spoken: they hate it.
Now, just to be clear, the most exciting thing about this cover is the fact that Dunham is showing off her cellulite — a statement that Ashley Graham made cool a long time ago. And even more important is the fact that Glamour didn’t go in and photoshop the crap out of her legs, like Vogue did for her photo spread way back when.
But is that what the internet is talking about? Nope. You see, folks could care less about her cellulite or her body positive message. What they care about is the fact that Lena Dunham is on the cover. That’s it. Just her presence is enough to set off the internet.
We know what you’re thinking: “wow, people must really hate her.” And yes, yes they do. She’s said racist comments about Odell Beckham, Jr. and most recently made inappropriate statements about wanting to have an abortion. So yeah, people have a lot of ammo.
Some of the comments on Twitter include:
“Why should anybody be glad about news relating to little miss overly privileged white feminist?”
“they should’ve left her out of the cover completely”
“literally who gives a fuck about that perverted woman.”
What do you think of her cover?
