Say What?! Lena Dunham Disses Deviled Eggs
Oh f*ck off, Lena Dunham! As if I didn’t hate the Girls creator, producer and star enough for being totally successful at the tender age of 26 (despite her character’s complete lack of fashion sense), Lena just incensed me even more by tweeting, "It's 95 degrees and catering just brought deviled eggs out as a ‘snack.’ Not to be a B, but I don't even wanna eat those in an igloo, RIGHT?" And now I despise her even more.
Hey guess what Lena, you are being a "B" -- actually you are kind of being a snotty b*tch. Are you completely unaware how awesome your life is and how absurd that tweet sounds to everyone else on the planet who doesn’t have their own HBO show, let alone a catering team bringing them food? Miss Lena, tweets like that don’t do much to squash that "entitled girl"-image people already have of you and your show. I get that this is supposed to be a joke, but a spoiled girl, complaining about catered food is about as bad as – a spoiled girl, complaining about catered food! It just boils my blood!
To be perfectly honest, I think deviled eggs are gross too, so I get that, but maybe other people like deviled eggs? They are always at parties, so I assume someone must like them. But maybe you shouldn’t complain about people bringing you free food, because it makes you seem extremely ungrateful? Just a thought. And even though the concept of eating deviled eggs (in 95 degree weather or in an igloo) repulses me, I would eat them just to be in your position. So remember that Lena – 'cause I’m coming for ya.
Moments later, Lena followed up the tweet by joking: "Last tweet courtesy of my sassy Jewish tween standup persona Aurora R. Goldfarb." Eh, it just seems to me like she is back peddling and trying to cover her tracks, so she doesn't come across like a jerk. But, we know how you really feel! Twitter is forever, I already saw it -- too late!
Girls is a simple and unflinching look at privileged twenty-somethings both floundering and fighting in life, and whose stories are reminiscent of what I and my peers went and are going through as we "grow up." We drink too much, we say the wrong things, we sleep with the wrong people, we sleep with the right people, we say the right things and then we f*ck it all up. I love Girls because it so much mirrors my bad-decision-fueled, post-college life; and I hate Girls because I didn’t write it first. Someone like Lena Dunham makes me mad because she has the life I want and then complains about the perks of that life -- and also because she unnecessarily takes her top off in every single episode.
P.S. On the next episode of Lena Dunham’s absurdly entitled tweets:
-"I’m not trying to sound ungrateful but the next person that brings me free food that I don’t actually have to eat –is dead!"
-"Oh my gosh world, some minion brought me a Coke and everyone knows I only drink Kombucha – MY LIFE IS SO HARD!"
-"Today, they only brought 3 men with bulging muscles, instead of the usual four, to fan me as I recline on a couch made of clouds. #lifesucks"
