Lena Dunham: ‘Deranged Neo-cons’ Make Twitter Unsafe Emotional Space

HBO’s Lena Dunham spoke with Ryan Seacrest Sunday evening during a red carpet interview at the Golden Globes, where she disclosed she has deleted the Twitter app from her phone to “create a safer space” for her emotional state.

The Not That Kind of Girl author will keep her account, @lenadunham, open. However, she reportedly plans to limit her use.

“People threaten my life and tell me what a cow I am, so I check it occasionally, but it’s not the same co-dependence with Twitter I once shared,” she explained, via People.

“There’s a lot of people I love on Twitter, but unfortunately you can’t read those without deranged neo-cons telling you you should be buried under a pile of rocks,” she added.

To continue her crusade to protect herself against taking criticism on social media, the actress posed for a semi-nude photograph before the Golden Globes, which was posted to executive producer Jennifer Konner’s Instagram page.

It is captioned, “FREETHENIPPLE cover.”
