Lena Dunham Has Responded To THAT Jumper Drama By Posing Nude On Instagram
People were NOT happy...
Lena Dunham has been involved in a fair few dramas in her time, and always leaves us thinking ‘what has she got to do with this now?’
You may have seen a pretty controversial jumper on your newsfeed this week, appearing online at Revolve, the sweater read ‘Being Fat Is Not Beautiful. It’s An Excuse…” Yeah… not Ok really.
The collection—originally conceived by LPA alongside celebrities Lena Dunham, Emily Ratajkowski, Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse, and Paloma Elsesser, was designed to bring attention to cyberbullying. The comment on the sweatshirt is allegedly one plus-size model Paloma Elsesser has heard before — the words “as said to @palomija” are printed below in a much smaller font.
So amid serious online backlash, Girls creator Lena Dunham has posted a naked snap of herself online, and tried o explain the situation to fans.
“Hi, don’t mind me! Just showering lying down with my Starbucks cup full of La Croix (not sponsored.)
“In response to the sweatshirt debacle of yesterday, I’ve had some amazing dialogue with other women about representation, reclaiming negativity and size inclusive clothing brands.
“I follow some incredible fashion bloggers/designers who highlight this (not even tagging the models, actors and “influencers” who inspire me in the confidence dept) and have tagged a bunch of my true faves.
“But I want to hear from you! Because for my upcoming TV appearances -it’s gonna be a bad fall for those who hate me- I’ll be only repping brands that cater to ALL women. Can you @ me with your favorites and my girl @marissaconqueso and I will get to work sharing our picks? ? I’d rather go naked than promote exclusivity ”
What do you think? Has the damage been done?
