Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro launched another attack on actor and director Lena Dunham on Friday, with the right-wing pundit slamming her as “wildly unattractive” and comparing her to “Stalin” after she used Twitter to report on two American Airlines employees whom she claimed made comments against transgender people at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.
“Everything she does is always about the drama,” he said, referring to “the wildly unattractive star of ‘Girls.’” He advised the political left to “stop associating with nutcases like Lena Dunham if you want people to take you seriously.” He also castigated her as a “personal dumpster fire.”
Dunham caused a storm on social media when she called out American Airlines employees on Wednesday night. “I heard two female attendants walking talking about how trans kids are a trend they’d never accept a trans child and transness is gross. I think it reflects badly on uniformed employees of your company to have that kind of dialogue going on,” she wrote.
