Lena Dunham Admits That Her Privilege Helped Her Make It In Hollywood

June 30, 2020 / Posted by:

Lena Dunham was trending again the other day, but not because she said something stupid for the 890,999th time, or got rid of another dog, or wrote something else that made us want to pour ammonia onto our eyes. Lena trended after an example of her white privilege was brought out again, and what says “white privilege” more than Lena? Lena has suggested race is a “chronic blind spot” for her since she grew up as an uber-privileged white person. But it seems now Lena is ready to… continue learning about race? Because apparently Lena has only learned one thing between then and now: shut up and listen. Oh, Lena! Apply that same attitude to everything else in your life and we’re making moves!

This all started when Lena trended over a Hollywood Reporter article from 2017 about how her show Girls was picked up with a half-assed pitch when she was only 23 years old.

Lena had to check what she had done this time to piss off the internet, but apparently it was something she had done years ago. She was still ready to apologize for it. Lena admits her career took off with “relative ease” and claimed that she had no idea she was a product of privilege at the time since she didn’t know it existed. If you want to remind yourself how privileged Lena is read this tweet:

Lena didn’t know! But now she’s ready to shut up and listen, promise.

Lena Dunham advocating for someone else? LOL, I would like to see it. We’ll see how long Lena is able to keep to herself, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before she re-opens Lenny Letter claiming to want to boost black voices with an article titled: “Why I Will Stop Talking And Let Black People Talk Because Of How Helpful I Am To The Black Community–A 3,000 Word Essay.”
