Lena Dunham is coming under fire after comparing her dog to her Jewish boyfriend in a bizarre article she wrote for the New Yorker magazine.
Daily Mail – Girls star Lena Dunham has been caught up in an anti-Semitism row after writing a controversial article comparing her Jewish boyfriend and her dog.
The 28-year-old prompted the storm after writing a quiz in the March 30 edition of New Yorker magazine – asking readers if a number of statements referred to her dog or boyfriend Jack Antonoff.
