Is Dunham’s attempt to give megastar Brad Pitt an open-mouth kiss really ‘sexual assault’ or merely a pathetic attempt at grabbing headlines?
Lena Dunham is no stranger to creating controversies for herself. However, Lena Dunham’s latest self-created controversy seems more pathetic than usual.
Dunham, who has a small role playing a fictionalized version of the Manson Family’s Catherine “Gypsy” Share in Quentin Tarantino’s tribute to 1969 Hollywood ‘Once Upon a Time In Hollywood‘—has found herself in hot water for allegedly attempting to plant an “open mouth kiss” on megastar Brad Pitt during the film’s premiere.

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

Here is where things went all wrong for Lena Dunham—or, rather, Brad Pitt—and the internet took notice…

I'm sorry but Lena Dunham just assaulted Brad Pitt and I'm unamused about the lack of narrative here https://t.co/JTMSiHB9Wy

And they would try to destroy his career

A better headline would be "Lena Dunham sexually assaults Brad Pitt on the red carpet".
Here you go, I fixed it for you.

Remember the shitstorm when john travolta "awkwardly" kissed scarlet johansson ? How is this different other than the role reversal ?

This looks like a #MeToo moment 🤷🏽♀️

She sexually assaulted him. It’s 2019 stop pretending if the genders were reversed this would be called anything other than that.

While Twitter goes crazy over the kiss miss, there is no mention of it on Dunham’s accounts (yet).
Dunham’s most recent Instagram post is of her in her premiere outfit.
