Lena Dunham Apologizes For Comparing Bill Cosby Scandal to the Holocaust
The Girls star addressed her analogy on Instagram
“It’s sort of like saying someone’s obsessed with the Holocaust. It’s not ‘I’m so angry about Hulk Hogan’s sex tape,’ ” she said.
“This is a huge issue, and it speaks to the way that we abuse power and the way that celebrity allows for injustice,” she continued. “Everyone else has gone, ‘Let’s hope it’s not true.’ Chris Rock, who’s an incredible guy and who has a strong sense of social justice, has basically said, ‘We’ll see.’ ”
The actress later apologized for her comments on Instagram.
“I’m already aware comparing Bill Cosby to the Holocaust wasn’t my best analogy,” she captioned her photo. “With Love from your special rape-hating Jew friend LENA”
While Dunham recently said she deleted Twitter to create a “safer space” for herself emotionally, she may also be looking to protect her public image.
