Lena Dunham Apologized To Odell Beckham For Being A Sack Of Flaming Garbage

Lena Dunham threw a bunch of shade at Odell Beckham Jr. for not hitting on her at the Met Gala.  Now she's apologizing for it and can someone please tell me who the fuck she is?

Is she a comedian?  An actress?  What does she do or what has she been in?

I bet Odell has no idea this was even a thing, because he too probably has no idea who she is.

All I know is she's an ugly chick who is mad people aren't attracted to her.  Is this her routine.  I'm starting to think this was all a publicity stunt.

I owe Odell Beckham Jr an apology. Despite my moments of bravado, I struggle at industry events (and in life) with the sense that I don't rep a certain standard of beauty and so when I show up to the Met Ball surrounded by models and swan-like actresses it's hard not to feel like a sack of flaming garbage. This felt especially intense with a handsome athlete as my dinner companion and a bunch of women I was sure he'd rather be seated with. But I went ahead and projected these insecurities and made totally narcissistic assumptions about what he was thinking, then presented those assumptions as facts. I feel terrible about it. Because after listening to lots of valid criticism, I see how unfair it is to ascribe misogynistic thoughts to someone I don't know AT ALL. Like, we have never met, I have no idea the kind of day he's having or what his truth is. But most importantly, I would never intentionally contribute to a long and often violent history of the over-sexualization of black male bodies- as well as false accusations by white women towards black men. I'm so sorry, particularly to OBJ, who has every right to be on his cell phone. The fact is I don't know about his state of mind (I don't know a lot of things) and I shouldn't have acted like I did. Much love and thanks, Lena
