Lena Dunham is coming to the defense of Taylor Swift once again; this time. not because of her dating history but because of Taylor’s history of not speaking out politically. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the “Girls” actress expresses her belief that people being upset about the singer not speaking up is understandable: “When I was lesser known, I was like, ‘Who could not share their opinion?”‘
However, after years in the public eye and after making controversial statements of her own, Lena understands why a celebrity would stay silent. “Then I found out that when you talk about politics, people straight up tweet you the floor plan of your house,” she explains. “You have to fucking watch it because people are nuts.”
Do you agree with Lena’s argument for Taylor not taking a stand?
