Lena Dunham Quits Twitter Following Abuse

Lena Dunham Quits Twitter Following Abuse

SHARE

Avid Twitter-er Lena Dunham has quit the social network following a tirade of “verbal abuse” from her followers.

The Girls show-runner spoke on the Re/code Decode podcast yesterday, saying she had given all control of her account to her management after a picture she posted of herself wearing her boyfriend’s underwear generated the negative backlash.

The 29-year-old New-Yorker said, “I don’t look at Twitter anymore. I tweet, but I do it through someone else.”

“I really appreciate that anybody follows me at all, and so I didn’t want to cut off my relationship to it completely, but it really, truly wasn’t a safe space for me…there’s a lot of people I love on Twitter, but unfortunately you can’t read those without reading deranged neo-cons telling you you should be buried under a pile of rocks.”

Dunham returns to our screens in early 2016 for Season Six of HBO’s Girls.

  2. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask
    if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior
    to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations
    or tips? Thank you!
