Lena Dunham Defends Jordyn Woods amid 'Public Shaming' Over Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal

"It's just A LOT of media attention on a very young girl's sexual choices and my heart aches when I see that," Lena Dunham tweeted

Lena Dunham is coming to Jordyn Woods‘ defense.

The always outspoken Dunham, 32, tweeted about allegations that Kylie Jenner‘s longtime best friend hooked up with her sister Khloé Kardashian‘s boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

“Can you imagine if who you’d made out with when you were 21 had massive public shaming consequences?” the Girls creator wrote. “When I was 21 I kissed my friend’s crush in my bathroom during a dinner party. I was inexplicably wearing a dog leash. I stayed in bed for days feeling hot shame. That was enough of a consequence! Nobody slashed prices on my eyeliner brand or whatever.” (Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics company cut the price of the “Jordy” Velvet Liquid Lipstick Lip Kit in half after the cheating scandal broke.)

“The legal drinking age is 21. The legal going on TV age should be 26,” continued Dunham before quipping: “Just weighing in on the important national issues!”

The actress also responded to a fan who accused her of “coming for the Kardashians.”

“I’m not coming for the K’s! I love and respect them,” Dunham said. “It’s just A LOT of media attention on a very young girl’s sexual choices and my heart aches when I see that.”

Woods, 21, is poised to give her first interview since the scandal to Jada Pinkett Smith on her Facebook Watch talk show, Red Table Talk. PEOPLE has confirmed that the episode will air Friday.

A source told PEOPLE that the family is “pissed” that she may try to make amends on the show. According to the source, Woods — who recently moved out of Jenner’s housesigned an “ironclad NDA” with the family. (A representative for Woods did not comment when contacted by PEOPLE.)

“She can’t talk about the family, so it’s unclear what she’s going to be able to say to Jada,” the source said. “She can apologize but can’t talk about anything really beyond that in terms of the family.”

The source added that “the Kardashians are feeling 100 percent done with Jordyn.”

“They’re saying she should’ve reached out directly, but she did,” the source said. “They were just too pissed to listen to her or pay any attention. On the flip side, if she says anything except ‘I’m sorry,’ or tries to trash Tristan, that’s going to push Khloé back to him and destroy Jordyn.”

“Tristan has been telling Khloé that he feels bad and that they have a kid together and that he disrespected her as the mother of his child,” the source added. “He’s trying to make amends.”

As the source put it, the alleged affair between Woods and Thompson, 27, was a “one-time thing.”

“She was drunk but not blacked out,” the source said. “Afterwards, she knew she had messed up and was like, ‘I gotta go, I gotta go.'”

The basketball player was first caught cheating on Kardashian, 34, last April when photos and videos surfaced of him getting close to other women just days before she gave birth to their daughter True. Though she initially forgave him, they had been living apart since the fall, and a source told PEOPLE last week that things “never really went back to normal.”
