Lena Dunham is attempting to put herself in check after Twitter united to collectively drag her over her comments about Odell Beckham Jr.

Dunham shared a bizarre rant about meeting Beckham at this year’s Met Gala. She claimed that the 23-year-old NFL player wasn’t interested in her because he wouldn’t get off his phone.

To be clear, Dunham's theory had zero basis in reality, but she shared it with Amy Schumer and published the transcript in her newsletter:

“I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards. That’s a marshmallow. That’s a child. That’s a dog.’ It wasn’t mean — he just seemed confused.”

"The vibe was very much like, “Do I want to f*ck it? Is it wearing a … yep, it’s wearing a tuxedo. I’m going to go back to my cell phone. It was like we were forced to be together, and he literally was scrolling Instagram rather than have to look at a woman in a bow tie."

She eventually tried to brush the whole thing off as a joke, but failed to calm the Twitter slander. In fact, the Girls creator's demand  for acknowledgement backfired so spectacularly that it can only be described as poetic.

After the social media read, Dunham circled back with a lengthy mea culpa posted to Instagram Saturday (Sept. 3)

"I owe Odell Beckham Jr an apology," she wrote. "Despite my moments of bravado, I struggle at industry events (and in life) with the sense that I don't rep a certain standard of beauty and so when I show up to the Met Ball surrounded by models and swan-like actresses it's hard not to feel like a sack of flaming garbage."
