Lena Dunham Brilliantly Calls Out Us Weekly for Tying Her to Diet Tips

1 minute read

Lena Dunham is speaking out against Us Weekly featuring her photo on the cover of a recent issue promoting diet tips. The Girls star took to Instagram to slam the magazine for using her picture in connection to the story, countering the piece with her own sarcastic weight loss advice.

“20 slimdown diet tips,” she captioned a picture of the cover, adding a list of suggestions such as, “anxiety disorder” and “resultant constant nausea,” “an election that reveals the true depths of American misogyny” and “quiet rage that replaces need for food with need for revenge.”

Dunham concluded with a final rebuttal of Us‘s treatment of the issue. “I have no tips I give no tips I don’t want to be on this cover cuz it’s diametrically opposed to everything I’ve fought my whole career for and it’s not a compliment to me because it’s not an achievement thanx,” she wrote.

Us Weekly did not immediately respond to Motto‘s request for comment.
