Delete Your Account is a weekly column that takes the hot air out of celebrities and their social media shenanigans. Every Friday, I will decide whether or not each perpetrator should delete their accounts and never grace the internet again. This week, Lena Dunham is exhausting, Madonna has had it with thirsty Lady Gaga stans, Patton Oswalt goes on his first welcome Twitter rant, and Martin Shkreli hails Hydra.
LENA DUNHAM Earlier this week, Lena Dunham and frequent Delete Your Account subject Amy … read more
Lena Dunham spent days, if not weeks or months thinking about Odell Beckham Jr. They were seated at the same table at this year’s Met Gala, and according to Lena, Odell barely spoke to her and spent most of the time on his phone. As we learned in Lena’s latest Lenny interview, which was released last Friday, Lena projected a lot of sleazy, misogynistic and racist bulls—t onto Odell’s general indifference. At first, Lena tried to double down and say that it was all a joke and she’s just … read more
That’s one way to address it!
As you’re probably WELL aware, U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte got into a bit of trouble this summer when he lied to Rio police about being robbed, and on Wednesday night the athlete’s punishment finally came out!

Odell Beckham Jr. is speaking out after Lena Dunham accused him of essentially being a misogynist.
Despite never having actually exchanged words, the Girls creator recently blasted Beckham in an interview for her feminist newsletter, telling comedian Amy Schumer — who was also in attendance at the A-list event — that ODJ purposefully ignored her at the 2016 Met Gala simply because her body is “not the shape of a woman by his standards.”
Though Twitter eventually dragged Dunham for … read more
EAST RUTHERFORD — If you are struggling to understand what exactly this whole Odell Beckham Jr.-Lena Dunham flap is about, you are not alone.
Because Beckham doesn’t get it either.
Veteran QB Josh Johnson joins the Giants “Honestly, I don’t really know much about the situation to really address (it),” Beckham said Monday at his locker after Giants practice, a few days after Dunham, the creator of HBO’s popular ‘Girls’ program, criticized Beckham in a collaboration with comedienne Amy Schumer written … read more
After Lena Dunham assumed Odell Beckham Jr. snubbed her at the Met Gala this year in a cringeworthy interview with Amy Schumer, the question that’s been on everyone’s minds ― besides “OMG, WHY?” ― is how the football player would respond. The “Girls” creator has since dismissed the controversy as “the outrage machine” only to apologize later for ascribing “misogynistic thoughts to someone I don’t know AT ALL,” as well as perpetuating stereotypes about black men. On Wednesday, … read more
As we discussed over the weekend, Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer are cut from the same douche-cloth. While Lena got most of the attention from her interview with Schumer, it’s worth noting that Lena was supposed to be interviewing Amy Schumer about Amy’s book. Like, that was the whole reason they were being a—holes together. Amy was shilling for her book and Lena wouldn’t stop talking about herself and how she makes up fantasies about being sexualized and objectified by black men and presents … read more
Despite some pretty harsh accusations made against him, Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t spreading any hate when it comes to Lena Dunham.
In a recent Q&A with Amy Schumer for her Lenny Letter, the Girls star claimed the New York Giants football player looked at her like she was “not the shape of a woman by his standards” at the 2016 Met Gala, despite never having actually spoken to him.
But OBJ didn’t let that shake him.
“I don’t have enough information to really speak on it,” he told Complex at a private … read more
Depending on how the election turns out, Amy Schumer might be done with America.
The Inside Amy Schumer star told BBC Newsnight that she will be leaving the U.S. should Donald Trump win the presidential election in November. An avid Hillary Clinton fan, Schumer told the interviewer that she couldn’t understand a world in which the real estate magnate would win.
“My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain or somewhere,” Schumer said. “It’s beyond … read more
Lena Dunham still has a racial blindspot, and it’s time to acknowledge it. Last week, she faced the wrath of Twitter when she implied that black NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. ignored her at an event because she wasn’t f**kable. But this isn’t the first time she’s jumped to conclusions about the inner thoughts and intentions of famous black men. Consider the snippet below from a 2013 interview Dunham did with Vulture. In it, Dunham laments a missed opportunity to connect with Drake, after … read more
Chloe Moretz has been trying to beef with Kim Kardashian for months now. Chloe was one of the celebrities who decided to body-police Kim when Kim dared to post a half-naked photo of herself on social media. Chloe’s argument was that Kim shouldn’t post naked photos of herself because of feminism, and Chloe seemed to think that she alone could and should personally approve of which half-naked photos should be posted online (especially if they were her own half-naked photos) and what kind of “feminism” … read more
â Some celebs offer formulaic apologies that sound more like non-apologies after offending someone or something, but Lena Dunham is offering a lengthy mea culpa to NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. after what she now views as misguided public comments. The flap started when Dunham was seated next to Beckham at the Met Gala, recounts Slate. In a subsequent interview with Amy Schumer, Dunham offered up this: “I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked … read more
Years ago, I figured out my issue with Lena Dunham. I diagnosed her with a condition of “Special Snowflake Syndrome.” I defined this syndrome as someone (Lena) who has been told repeatedly that her every thought, word and action was and is brilliant, groundbreaking and important. Special Snowflakes don’t do well when they are not constantly being praised and told they are special. Special Snowflakes hate it when their motives are questioned, when they are told that they made some kind of error, … read more
Leslie Jones is back on Twitter following a website hack that is now under investigation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Late last month, Jones’s personal website JustLeslie.com was hacked to show explicit photos and personal information. In addition to publicly displaying personal iCloud photos, her passport and driver’s license, the hackers also posted a picture of a gorilla on her site. Soon after the hack, the site was taken down. Several celebrities, including Katy Perry, Ellen … read more
Lena Dunham is apologizing to Odell Beckham Jr. after she joked about him ignoring her because she thought he didn’t want to sleep with her at the Met Gala. “I owe Odell Beckham Jr. an apology,” she said in a statement posted on Instagram on Saturday afternoon. “Despite my moments of bravado, I struggle at industry events (and in life) with the sense that I don’t rep a certain standard of beauty and so when I show up to the Met Ball surrounded by models and swan-like actresses it’s hard not to feel … read more
