Lena Dunham is under fire for a disgusting move on actor Brad Pitt that has many fuming about sexual harassment and invoking the #MeToo movement.
The left-wing actress is being accused of sexual misconduct after photos surfaced of her awkward attempt to kiss the star on the lips during a red carpet event at the London premiere of “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.”
The “Girls” creator, who has a brief appearance in the Quentin Tarantino film, was seen in photos on the red carpet, separated from Pitt by Tarantino and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie. But Dunham switched out her position, moving over to Pitt as she tried to plant a kiss right on his unsuspecting lips.

But the A-lister apparently turned just in time and Dunham was left with an awkward kiss on the side of his lips.
The photos sparked a wave of headlines accusing the HBO star and vocal critic of President Donald Trump of sexual harassment and misconduct.

“A photo of Lena Dunham appearing to awkwardly kiss Brad Pitt has people talking about the double standards of consent,” Insider declared. “Lena Dunham accused of being ‘inappropriate’ after Brad Pitt kiss,” Yahoo reported.
The 33-year-old was apparently pretty happy with her London red carpet appearance, sharing photos of herself in a red and gold feathered and sequined dress.

She also admitted on Twitter that she had gotten to “flirt” with Pitt.
It’s not every day I get to wear a mumu, go barefoot, flirt with #BradPitt, and join a cult… as a job. Today @OnceInHollywood comes out. Get thee to the theatre to see this gem of cinematic history. https://t.co/ngl9HNy3aY pic.twitter.com/YCg2AlYRCB

Feminists like Lena Dunham are the ultimate hypocrites. They make unsolicited and unwanted advances on men like Brad Pitt and Odell Beckham Jr. but want to be the spokespersons for sexual harassment. #HimToo #BradPitt pic.twitter.com/MnoLCMi0Se

Her latest move on Pitt scored her a fresh round of backlash for the blatant double standard.
Lena Dunham was trying kiss Brad Pitt on the mouth here, even though he wasn’t into it. I wonder how the media would have covered this had the genders been reversed. pic.twitter.com/4HMnX2x57a

Double Standards ??♂️

This isn’t the first time she has done something like this. She has also admitted to molesting her little sister. And she has openly shamed a man for not being sexually attracted to her. It always makes headlines but somehow she stays employed… that’s the problem.

All I’m saying is if it were the other way around she’d already be doing an interview crying and telling the world how traumatized she is

The term you’re looking for is “assault”.

I would love to see him come out against this act by her. But he wont because SJW’s would make it a media frenzy on how he is wrong… Men and women are totally ‘equal’ though.
