Lena Dunham Defends Kim Kardashian Following Paris Robbery: 'That's a Human Being!'
By Alex Ungerman
Lena Dunham believes people should put themselves in Kim Kardashian West's shoes.
The Girls star is speaking in defense of Kardashian West in the wake of the reality star being robbed at gunpoint in Paris on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, where she calls what happened to her "so awful," and slams those making jokes at the mother of two's expense.
"What I really hate about this Kim thing is that people are feeling so much license to make jokes," the 30-year-old actress says. "That's a human being."
"It was a great lesson to me in how your humor can be misconstrued," Dunham admits, explaining that the remarks she made were meant to be more self-deprecating. "In the written word, it did not translate."
"It seemed like I was accusing him of some kind of misogyny," she continues, adding that she also inadvertently perpetuated negative stereotypes.
