Addressing the incident at a panel at the Tribeca Film Festival a few weeks ago, Dunham said that it was the reaction from “other women who shared my politics” that was hard for her to take.
“I can take whatever the ‘alt-right’ wants to say, that’s fine,” she said. “It’s when I thought I was being misunderstood, or willfully misunderstood, by other women who shared my politics that things were really hard.”
The latest Bleachers video for the single, ‘Don’t Take The Money’ was directed by Dunham and stars ‘Arrested Development’ star, Alia Shawkat.
