Lena Dunham’s writer Zinzi Clemmons claims she is hipster racist. Someone who uses sarcasm to mask their true intentions and present it as a joke.
I’ve met people like this too. They say something in a smart mouth way, and when you do not laugh immediately because you are uncomfortable, they can see their attempt didn’t go over too well and then circle back around reminding you “it’s a joke.”
This happens more than naught with any hour of the day.
Dunham had sided with Murray Miller, a writer for her TV show “Girls” as he was accused of sexually assaulting actress Aurora Perrineau. Dunham said three percent of these incidents were misreported on a yearly basis, thus throwing shade on the accusation to protect Miller. That prompted her writer, Clemmons to quit.

On Sunday, writer Zinzi Clemmons issued her own statement on Twitter, writing that she would no longer write for Lenny Letter, and urging other writers of color to eschew writing for Dunham, whom she accused of being a racist. Clemmons began by alleging that having known Dunham since they were in college together, she witnessed Dunham’s racism first-hand. Clemmons wrote: “For all you writers who are outraged by what she did, I encourage you to do the same. Especially women of color. She cannot have our words if she doesn’t respect us. To eliminate any doubt, I know exactly who Lena Dunham is – who she was before she was famous – and have for years, and I will tell you.”
Clemmons wrote that she has known Dunham since their college years, and they shared overlapping social circles. Clemmons noted she “avoided those people like the plague because of their racism,” adding, “I’d call their strain ‘hipster racism’, which typically uses sarcasm as a cover, and in the end, it looks a lot like gaslighting—‘It’s just a joke. Why are you overreacting?’” She said she heard people use the “n-word,” then try to act like it was all a joke.
Here is her statement:
As for Dunham, it’s not like nobody didn’t expect this. She is a trashy person that has made herself famous by coming out as a homosexual and using that as a stepping stone for stardom in Hollywood. She knows she is not talented, but that’s what her network desires, so she’s in her element.
Democrats defend white males of sexual assault while prosecuting a Bill Cosby and ruining his career just on accusations alone with no proof. But the actual photographic evidence of a white male democrat sexually assaulting an unconscious woman and his white male democrat privilege thinks an apology is enough. Thank this assistant for pointing out the blatant racism of this woman who once again defends the sexual assault of a white male democrat and accused the woman of lying.
One liberal finally gets a clue, while another liberal receives outed–always a pleasure to watch. If this could happen more often, we might have a nice country.
