Here she is—seated next to Girls executive producer Jenni Konner—reacting to her joke:

“I am not advocating for a world where women erase men from the workplace, as pleasurable as that might be for me on certain days,” Dunham said in her plea of support for women in film. “I am advocating for all of us here to make it our mission to use our resources and turn this around as a team…It’s the right thing to do and it’s the only thing to do.”

We’ve reached out to THR for comment and will update if they get back to us.

UPDATE: THR has responded with the following comment:
