Writer Leaves Lenny Letter B/c of Lena Dunham || Since GIRLS came on the scene Dunham was branded the voice of the a generation. This title never sat well with me, and although I did love the first two seasons of the show, I never followed the "voice of generation" that was attributed to Dunham...nor did she ever speak for me or women like me. If the accusations made by Clemmon's are true...then serious shame on often problematic Lena. (Vulture)
