On the Red Carpet, Lena Dunham Trashes 'Deranged Neocons' Who Criticize Her Online

You don’t usually here denunciations of “deranged neocons” on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, but HBO star Lena Dunham uncorked this attack on her Twitter enemies to Ryan Seacrest on the E! Network.

Seacrest noted that her show “Girls” began its fourth season on Sunday night, and he asked if she would be checking for online reaction:

LENA DUNHAM: I deleted Twitter because I tried to create a safer space for me emotionally.


DUNHAM: People threaten my life and tell me what I cow I am, so I decided....I check it occasionally but it’s not the same codependence Twitter and I once shared.

ANDREW RANNELLS: It’s a door to a whole lot of craziness.

DUNHAM: It’s the dark side of the Internet. There’s a lot of people I love on Twitter, but unfortunately you can’t read those without reading deranged neocons telling you you should be buried under a pile of rocks.

Seacrest may end up on the wrong side of the PC wall for shooting back “Come on, that doesn’t happen.” Dunham replied “Get to the world, Ryan!” And she and Rannells shared a big smile.
