Sinds Kanye West afgelopen weekend zijn video voor het nummer Famous lanceerde, waarin hij in bed ligt met wax-versies van (en echte) celebrities, staat het web bom van de lofzangen én kritische geluiden over de rapper. Lena Dunham laat via Facebook weten dat ze er allesbehalve blij van wordt. Ze is namelijk niet blij met de manier waarop Kanye vrouwen wegzet:

'Let's break it down. At the same time Brock Turner is getting off with a light tap for raping an unconscious woman and photographing her breasts for a group chat... As assaults are Periscoped across the web and girls commit suicide after being exposed in ways they never imagined... While Bill Cosby's crimes are still being uncovered and understood as traumas for the women he assaulted but also massive bruises to our national consciousness... Now I have to see the prone, unconscious, waxy bodies of famous women, twisted like they've been drugged and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a sickening sense of dis-ease.'

Toch laat Lena ook weten dat ze, ondanks haar vriendschap met Taylor Swift, fan is van Kanye West en waardeert wat hij doet als artiest:

'I know that art's job is to make us think in ways that aren't always tidy or comfortable. But this feels different. Seeing a woman I love like Taylor Swift (fuck that one hurt to look at, I couldn't look), a woman I admire like Rihanna or Anna, reduced to a pair of waxy breasts made by some special effects guy in the Valley, it makes me feel sad and unsafe and worried for the teenage girls who watch this and may not understand that grainy roving camera as the stuff of snuff films.'
