Dunham Regrets Cosby-Holocaust Analogy

After comparing Bill Cosby’s rape allegations to the Holocaust in a recent Time Out New York interview, Lena Dunham published an Instagram post clarifying her comments. In the original TimeOut interview, Dunham said, “It’s sort of like saying someone’s obsessed with the Holocaust. It’s not, ‘I’m so angry about Hulk Hogan’s sex tape.’ This is a huge issue, and it speaks to the way that we abuse power and the way that celebrity allows for injustice.” In the Instagram post, Dunham says she’s “already aware comparing Bill Cosby to the Holocaust wasn’t my best analogy.” Dunham recently hired crisis manager Judy Smith, the inspiration for Olivia Pope’s character on Scandal.
