Lena Dunham has apparently been failing at the art of “shut the f—k up” for a very long time. Unfortunately for her, the tweets never forget.
In the wake of her conversation with girl crush Amy Schumer on topics including faux outrage over rape jokes, “grinding her ass” against Michael B. Jordan for 20 minutes, showing her “tits” in a tux and some pretty vile assumptions about Odell Beckham Jr., people who actually pay attention to Girls have schooled everyone else to Dunham’s apparently long-standing issues with objectifying black men and making them a home for all of her insecurities.
And look what the Twitter sleuths turned up.
Dunham tweeted in 2010: “Just found my “creativity journal” from 2005. It begins: “I dreamed I was a prostitute and that I molested a little African American rodent”
Well, alrighty, then.
The backlash to her “joke” about labeling a rat African American and then molesting it has continued to grow.

And for bonus bigotry, see what Dunham had to say about Asian men:
Dunham clearly has the same white female comedian disorder that Tina Fey, Amy Poehle and Schumer have. You know the one where white women who are bold and unapologetically racist with their jokes are high-fived for their “edginess.”
At least Fey and Poehler are halfway funny.
