Lena Dunham Laughs Off Obama "First Time" Ad Backlash

by at . Comments

She stars on Girls and now Lena Dunham is facing criticism for setting a bad example for actual girls across the country.

Not long after the Emmy nominee released an ad in favor of Barack Obama - in which she talked about how one's "first time" [voting] should be with a "a great guy... someone who really cares about and understands women" - some on the Right have fired back against Dunham.

And it's gotten personal.

"Lena Dunham allows herself to be used in this cheap, last minute attempt to be the first for young women," writes RedState.com "Dunham, who was raised in a wealthy, over-sexualized household and who started therapy at age 7 must somewhat be forgiven for her role; she seems to have a thing for talking about her first time, the Obama administration was just happy to oblige."

Dunham, however, seems far from bothered by the backlash. She Tweeted yesterday:

"It tickles me to no end that while my twitter feed was blowing up with conservative hate I was literally hanging out in a pile of bisexuals."

What do you think? Does Dunham deserve this criticism?
