Can Lena Dunham catch a break?
The Girls creator is being bashed again for her risque HBO series, this time by Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
The NBA Hall of Famer took to The Huffington Post blog to speak his mind about what he thinks of Girls.
“Girls wants to tell us something important about twentysomething females of the 21st Century. And, as the elders of our society, we should always be listening to those new voices crying out.”
Jabbar then goes on a full rant about what Girls is really about, saying that their world is too white, the guys are more interesting than the girls, they’re not funny and too self conscious.
He also makes a comment about the lack of color on the show.
“I don't believe that people of color, sexual preference, or gender need to be shaken indiscriminately into every series like some sort of exotic seasoning. If the story calls for a black character, great.”
Dunham was criticized last season for there being no black people on the show, according to The Atlantic Wire, to which she then added the character, Sandy, Hannah’s new black Republican boyfriend.
