Lena Dunham Live-Tweeted Her Traumatic Experience At JFK And It’s Hella Relatable

Celebrities –- they’re just like us! They stress about work, they deal with heartbreak, and they’re not immune to the trauma that seems to walk hand-in-hand with flying nowadays.

Yesterday, Lena Dunham live tweeted her trash fire of a flight. The flight was delayed by four hours, leaving the usually busy celebrity with time to share her extremely relatable emotions with the Twitter masses.

For those of you who are worried about the star’s mental health, it appears that she will fully recover from this experience.

Dunham may have declined to share the name of the airline that did her so wrong but let’s be real — it could have been any of them.
