Lena Dunham harassed by TV producer

Lena Dunham was harassed by a TV producer who shared lewd photo and mocked her onscreen nudity. The incident was told by 'Girls' executive producer Jenni Konner in Lenny Letter.

Konner mentions an encounter she, Dunham and members of the 'Girls' staff experienced after wrapping production of the show, they were eating when a producer/director of a different show that shoots nearby cornered Lena. He asked Lena to meet with an actress from his show to convince her to ‘show her tits, or at least some vag’, according to him she would be able to convince the actress since she shows anything 'even your asshole'.

He made sure to show her 'an iPhone photo of a mutual friend with a cock next to her face, ostensibly a still from his TV show but shown at a completely inappropriate time'. According to Konner, apparently this sort of thing happens to Dunham a lot. He went on to critique and crudely evaluate the bodies of all the women on his show.

She said being mad isn't enough and when we share these stories we open the door to other women's stories. And also that 'the only thing standing between men and outdated, hideous behavior is their ability to get away with it.'
