The Lenny Letter published a fresh interview with Amy Schumer on Friday, conducted by Girls creator and star (and Lenny Letter co-founder) Lena Dunham. The two chopped it up about everything from the recent Kurt Metzger controversy to their seating arrangements at the Met Gala, at which point Dunham took the opportunity to put Odell Beckham Jr. on blast for choosing to scroll through the 'gram instead of looking at her.
"You and I were literally sitting across from each other at the Met Ball, and it was so surreal to get to do that," Dunham told Schumer. "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. He was like, 'That's a marshmallow. That's a child. That's a dog.' It wasn't mean—he just seemed confused."
Dunham continued, unofficially dubbing the event the so-called "Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes" while slamming Beckham even further:
"The vibe was very much like, 'Do I want to fuck 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."
Shortly after publication, Dunham's predictions as to what Beckham was thinking were met mostly with confusion on Twitter:
Lena Dunham responded to the outrage, explaining her comments about OBJ were an expression of her "sense of humor, which has kept me alive for 30 years." Read more of her tweets below:
.@OBJ_3 is talented, stylish, seems super awesome and wasn't into chatting with me at a fancy party.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 2, 2016
My story about him was clearly (to me) about my own insecurities as an average-bodied woman at a table of supermodels & athletes.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 2, 2016
It's not an assumption about who he is or an expectation of sexual attention. It's my sense of humor, which has kept me alive for 30 years.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 2, 2016
Glad the outrage machine roars on though, right @amyschumer?— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 2, 2016
ps I'll try and dance myself onto @michaelb4jordan if I have the chance, even when I'm a married grandma. I'm a red blooded str8 woman!— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 2, 2016
