Lena Dunham Bizarrely Slams Odell Beckham Jr. for Rejecting Her

Doesn’t she have a man, though?

Stop the presses: Lena Dunham's outrage is back.

The outspoken GIRLS star went on a very strange rant against Odell Beckham Jr. during an interview with Amy Schumer for her Lenny LetterWhen the conversation between the comediennes turned to this year's Met Gala, Dunham revealed that she felt rejected by the NFL player, whom she was seated next to.

"I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards," she said. "He was like, 'That’s a marshmallow. That’s a child. That’s a dog.' It wasn’t mean — he just seemed confused."

She continued, "The vibe was very much like, 'Do I want to f*** it? Is it wearing a … yep, it’s wearing a tuxedo. I’m going to go back to my cell phone.' 'It was like we were forced to be together, and he literally was scrolling Instagram rather than have to look at a woman in a bow tie."

From Lena's own account, it doesn't sound like Beckham said anything to her at all. Interesting that she interpreted all that from simply the silence of a stranger. 

She concluded, "I was like, 'This should be called the Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes.'"

Worth noting: Dunham has been dating fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff for several years. So, why was she trying to catch the attention of another man, and then getting upset when he didn't make a move?
