Lena Dunham on Sunday said she has received “more hostility” from Democrats for supporting Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders than she has from Republicans.
The Girls creator spoke at a Hollywood campaign event for the former Secretary of State, which also featured the candidate’s daughter Chelsea Clinton and actress America Ferrera. “I have received more hostility for voting for a qualified female candidate than I have ever received anywhere from the American right wing,” Dunham said, according to Variety. “The fact that other members of the Democratic Party have spoken to me like I was an ill-informed child for voting for someone who represents everything I think this country should be is outrageous.”

Go greased lightning (and by greased lightning I mean @hillaryclinton.) The clothes are just a way to bring even more energy and joy to the message, and they are created by the forceful magic of @shirleykurata. Pic carefully posed by @greer_lankton_archives_museum. Love u goodnight!
Dunham, who was released from the hospital last week after surgery for a ruptured ovarian cyst, said she reached a “tipping point” when one Instagram user wrote to her that “Bernie Sanders has done more for feminism than Hillary Clinton has.”
