Lena Dunham received all types of backlash for comments she made about being curved (i.e. dissed, shaded, etc.) by Odell Beckham Jr. at the Met Gala. In a conversation with comedian Amy Schumer for her Lenny Letter series, she explained that was placed next to the NFL’er at the bash and had an unpleasant experience.

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.

Lena said that Odell was more interested in his cell phone:

The vibe was very much like, Do I want to f*** 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.

She continued,

I was like, this should be called the Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes.
