Lena Dunham’s back in the news -- never glad tidings for civilization. The creator of HBO’s Girls has issued her latest mea culpa, apologizing for defending a male colleague from an accusation of rape last year. Dunham wrote an open letter to actress Aurora Perrineau in The Hollywood Reporter, seeking forgiveness for doubting Perrineau’s allegations against Girls writer/producer Murray Miller
Pair “Trump” with “Immigrants,” “Minorities,” or “Nationalists” and you are well on your way to constructing a leftist clickbait headline that will send the internet into a flurry of excitement, virtue signaling, and speculation. But legendary directors J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg are now trying to shatter the internet’s expectations with (shockingly) a non-Trump combo: “Lena Dunham” and “Syrian Refugees.”
No amount of money or hyperbole is too high for Democrats attempting to wrest control of the House and Senate from Republicans. It is shaping up to be a tough fight. What seems to be giving lefties confidence though, is the fact that they have the cash and pretty smiles of Hollywood’s finest to back them up.
Separating children from their parents is wrong – including when they’re in the womb. But don’t expect actress and producer Lena Dunham to understand that. Dunham once publicly wished she had an abortion, so her moral compass isn’t exactly stellar.
Feminism started off as a great idea. But now it’s spinning out of control.
In the midst of the utterings of doom from Hollywood, it’s interesting to see what merits a gleeful response from celebrities.
The ongoing controversy over pornstar Stormy Daniels and President Trump has celebrities frolicking over the media’s salacious coverage of the story, the lawsuit, and the people involved. During Anderson Cooper’s Sunday interview with Stephanie Cliffords, otherwise known as Stormy Daniels, on CBS’ 60 Minutes, some of the more outspoken in Hollywood hypocritically weighed in.
Twin toadying: New York Times political reporter Amy Chozick relished Hillary Clinton and other women D.C. liberal feminist figures (both in and out of power) in two stories Sunday, one on the front of Sunday Styles and one on the front of Sunday Business. Chozick, who led the paper’s coverage of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, couldn’t help fawning over Clinton even in a mildly critical story.
Does anyone in Hollywood put their foot in their mouth better than Lena Dunham? The creator of HBO’s Girls has made apologizing her side hustle. She even wrote an essay on her mea culpa addiction, hoping the meta-confession might burnish her culture warrior credentials.
Some people express their controversial support for others in bizarre ways.
Girls’ Lena Dunham was apparently thrilled to discover that ESPN’s Jemele Hill was following her on Twitter, and announced to her followers: “Holy shit @jemelehill following me is like finding out definitively that God is here and she reads your blog. Fan dance.”
With every episode, American Horror Story: Cult focuses on a different pet issue for liberals. In the October 17 episode, titled "Valerie Solanas Died for Your Sins: Scumbag" (no, seriously), they spent the episode on radical feminism in the 1960s and the horrible thing that is the "oppressive patriarchy" under which they want us to think we all live in 2017.
During her show on Tuesday, HLN’s S.E. Cupp unloaded on liberal Hollywood for keeping Harvey Weinstein’s predatory nature an “open secret” throughout the industry while slamming and shaming conservative women as traitors to their gender. “But there's another problem here, and it's why so many women like me are angry that Hollywood protected Weinstein’s horrific treatment of women for so long,” she exclaimed. “That's because Hollywood and Democrats—the combined self-proclaimed arbiters of “what’s good for women”—have for years insisted that I am bad for women.”
Some stars sent their thoughts and prayers to the dead and wounded. Others said the stupidest things possible. No one does “hot takes” worse than celebrities.
