“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.”
On Friday, Lena Dunham published an interview with comedian Amy Schumer for her newsletter, Lenny Letter. In it, Dunham made comments about this year’s Met Gala that have pissed a lot of people off.

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. He was like, “That's a marshmallow. That's a child. That's a dog.” It wasn't mean — he just seemed confused.
The vibe was very much like, “Do I want to fuck 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. I was like, “This should be called the Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes.”
Schumer then responded that Dunham was “dressed like a boy, and you looked sexy.”
It was unclear whether Dunham gave Beckham a chance to respond to her comments before publishing the piece.
