Lena Dunham Says She Deleted Twitter Because of 'Deranged Neo-Cons'


Ryan Seacrest caught up with Lena Dunham on the Golden Globes red carpet tonight and she briefly mentioned having to tune out all the sociopaths on Twitter. Like a sane human being, she now never checks it. Except sometimes.

In fact, she’s cut back on tweeting. Dunham told Seacrest:

I deleted Twitter [ED NOTE: FIGURATIVELY?] because I’m trying to create a safer space for myself emotionally. People threaten my life and tell me what a cow I am, so I decided I was gonna… I check it occasionally, but it’s not the same co-dependence Twitter and I once shared. 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.

Back to you, Giuliana!
