With the demise of The Fat Jewish in full effect, the media is calling out the viral meme account left and right for stealing the jokes of comedians to appease his massive Instagram following. Now, it's Lena Dunham's turn. The Girls star added her two cents on Twitter:
I unfollowed the Fat Jew years ago because he called me fat. Now I know it prolly wasn't even him :(— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) August 19, 2015
This may be the bit of social media that Lena is referring to, although it probably was an Instagram post, where The Fat Jewish currently has 5.7 million followers.
