It goes without saying that we love Lena Dunham’s outspoken style when it comes to shutting down her haters. Which is why we’re loving that Dunham just said the best thing about internet trolls. She went the mature route, which is not always easy to do with internet trolls. (Just ask Gabourey Sidibe about her love scene in Empire.)
Dunham has received not-nice, unwanted feedback from online strangers plenty of times. A couple months ago, she posted a photo on Instagram of her wearing a latex body suit and crystal crown to prove a point to her haters.
We definitely bowed to that idea!
And now, she’s speaking up again. On Friday, Dunham and her collaborator Jenni Konner celebrated the second anniversary of Lenny Letter. When Us Weekly asked about her online critics, she fired away.
It’s mature that instead of engaging with her critics, Dunham can just let it go.
She’s more interested in the people who can expand her worldview.
Ok, we definitely need to remember Dunham’s pep talks the next time we’re getting trolled.
