‘Lena Dunham Apologizes’ Is The New Twitter Account You Have to Be Following

Be first to like this.

There’s a new Twitter account trolling Lena Dunham after she had to apologize (yet again) for doing something stupid. Hailing from Melbourne, Jess Wheeler (creator of the popular account “Aus Gov Just Googled”) and Liv Croagh have created a Twitter bot called “Lena Dunham Apologizes,” which generates fabricated apologies from the Girls creator.

Recently, Dunham and Girls executive producer Jenni Konner released a joint statement defending Murray Miller, a writer from their show who was accused by actress Aurora Perrineau of sexual assault. Their statement claimed this “accusation is one of the 3 percent of assault cases that are misreported every year,” and that Miller is the “wrong target.”

After the internet blew up, Dunham apologized.

On Saturday, she said, “I naively believed it was important to share my perspective on my friend’s situation as it has transpired behind the scenes over the last few months. I now understand that it was absolutely the wrong time to come forward with such a statement and I am so sorry.”

Her apology was too little, too late for some. Writer Zinzi Clemmons, author of What We Lose, announced that she will no longer be writing for Dunham and Konner’s online feminist weekly newsletter Lenny Letter because, she says, Dunham and her friends’ racism was “well-known” prior to their fame. “She cannot have our words if she cannot respect us,” Clemmons writes.

While the Twitter account’s apologies are hilarious, they’re not that far off from reality. Someone tweeted a list of her actual apologies.
