Lena Dunham Perfectly Takes On Tabloids With Clever Tweets Denying Breakup Rumors
Hey, tabloids! Lena Dunham isn't taking your crap! And not only is she not taking it, she's making fun of it in a clever way. Take that! Lena Dunham denied rumors that she split up with her boyfriend, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, in a funny Twitter post after OK! Magazine claimed they broke up following a public fight. Bam! OK! Magazine, you just got hit with a witty tweet courtesy of Lena Dunham. How do ya feel now, suckas?!
Dunham wrote, in two separate tweets so you know she means business, "Despite everything I've seen and done, I still believe most of what I read... so when an article claimed Jack & I had broken up after a display of street rage, I was all 'what? can't we try and work it out?'"
The original story claimed that an onlooker saw Dunham and Antonoff fighting in the street. The witness said, "Lena was screaming at the top of her lungs, saying, 'I can't believe you!' over and over, with tears in her eyes."
With Dunham's response to the crazy story, she is following in the footsteps of sarcastic tabloid-denying ladies before her. There's Ellen DeGeneres who spoke out about a false report on her talk show when she spotted a magazine with herself and wife Portia de Rossi on the cover. She said, "I read the headline underneath and it said 'Ellen and Portia Marriage Crumbles' and I said, 'Oh, what happened? They seemed so happy!'" She went on to explain that the only thing they fight about is "who loves who more."
Then there's newcomer to the tabloid game Lupita Nyong'o who had her own clever response to an tabloid-related interview question which happened to be from DeGeneres. DeGeneres asked about the rumors that she was dating Jared Leto and Nyong'o responded, "But I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up? That was the last thing I heard."
Well done, ladies! Keep those sarcastic responses coming! The public needs to know that celebrity relationships don't literally consist of splitting up and getting back together every other week. (Well, not all of them at least.)
