I wouldn’t bet $100 that her story is true. You know her track record for telling the truth.
Update: According to Breitbart, there’s already some holes in her story as the airline cannot verify her claim. Shocker, not.
From Daily Mail: Lena Dunham took matters into her own hands when she heard two flight attendants engaging in ‘transphotic talk’. The 31-year-old actress was very active on social media Wednesday night as she reported the employees to American Airlines on Twitter. She even direct messaged the major airline and shared screenshots of the private conversation on her Instagram.
At first, the Girls star was complaining about a plane delay and being ‘admonished’ over having a wrinkled boarding pass until she heard the unsavory chatter. Lena wrote: ‘Not gonna call out the airline who delayed cuz shit happens BUT I did just overhear 2 @AmericanAir attendants having a transphobic talk.’
She then went on to tell the over 90-year-old airline how employees should be trained in this day and age.
The comedienne wrote: ‘At this moment in history we should be teaching our employees about love and inclusivity @AmericanAir. That was worst part of this night.’
She then went on to share screenshots of the private messages she sent the airline including: ‘I think it reflects badly on uninformed employees of your company to have that kind of dialogue going on.’
Lena also wrote them: ‘Awareness starts at home but jobs can set standards of practice.’
The customer service representative took information from the star and said they would pass it along for further review.
The next day, Lena reflected on the entire happening and even shared her societal views as she wrote: ‘For those who followed my airport saga yesterday, here’s my takeaway: these days it’s the little things. A smile. Offering a seat. Respect.’
‘We can’t afford to treat each other like cattle when we have a government that does. Being trapped at the airport filled me with love!’
Despite the incident in the air, things are going swimmingly for Dunham as she will appear on the new season of FX’s American Horror Story. Creator Ryan Murphy tweeted the news which was also confirmed by her reps to the Hollywood Reporter, adding that the Girls star will appear in just one episode of AHS season seven.
