Lena Dunham has taken to her Instagram account yet again to respond to the controversial LPA sweatshirt, which has been accused of fat-shaming. Apparently trying to draw more attention, the 32-year-old actress/writer accompanied her statement with an NSFW image of her.
The former “Girls” star posted on late Thursday, September 13 a picture of her lying naked in her shower. Her hair was wet as she covered her breast with one hand, while holding a “Starbucks cup full of La Croix” in the other hand.
In the caption, she told her followers not to mind her pose in the photo and shifted their attention to what she’s about to address in her writing instead. “In response to the sweatshirt debacle of yesterday, I’ve had some amazing dialogue with other women about representation, reclaiming negativity and size inclusive clothing brands,” she began.
In the wake of the fat-shaming sweatshirt debacle, Lena plans to team up with clothing brands which support body positivity and ask her followers to share their favorite ones. “I follow some incredible fashion bloggers/designers who highlight this (not even tagging the models, actors and ‘influencers’ who inspire me in the confidence dept) and have tagged a bunch of my true faves. But I want to hear from you!” she added.
The DGA Award winner stressed, “Because for my upcoming TV appearances -it’s gonna be a bad fall for those who hate me- I’ll be only repping brands that cater to ALL women. Can you @ me with your favorites and my girl @marissaconqueso and I will get to work sharing our picks? I’d rather go naked than promote exclusivity.”

Lena found herself at the center of the fat-shaming sweatshirt controversy after Revolve modeled the piece, featuring quote “Being fat is not beautiful, it’s an excuse,” on a thin white model. The “Tiny Furniture” star teamed up with LPA for the item, which was inspired by a quote directed at plus-size model Paloma Elsesser.
Lena wrote on Instagram on Wednesday, “This is a cause very close to my heart and the proceeds were meant to benefit charities that help young women by empowering them to express themselves through writing and art. Without consulting me or any of the women involved, @revolve presented the sweatshirts on thin white women, never thinking about the fact that difference and individuality is what gets you punished on the Internet, or that lack of diversity in representation is a huge part of the problem (in fact, the problem itself.)”
She added, “As a result, I cannot support this collaboration or lend my name to it in any way. This isn’t meant to shame Pia or the great work she’s done with LPA. I am deeply disappointed in @revolve’s handling of a sensitive topic and a collaboration rooted in reclaiming the words of internet trolls to celebrate the beauty in diversity and bodies and experiences that aren’t the industry norm.”

“My only goal on this planet is to empower women through art and dialogue,” she further claimed. “I’m grateful to every woman who shared a quote and so disappointed that our words were not honored. As a result, I will be making a donation to the charity of every woman’s choice who was wronged with me and I hope that @revolve will join me with a contribution of their own.”
