So, the year is drawing to a close. It was a particularly traumatic one for woke celeb Lena Dunham, who did her best to ruin everything for everyone else with topless selfies and other self-indulgent nonsense. Here are some of her most notable acts of ridiculousness in 2016.
1) That Time She Posted a Topless ‘Titanic’ Selfie
For some reason, Dunham thought it would be a good idea to post a photo of herself on Instagram wearing nothing but a necklace, like Kate Winslet’s character in Titanic. Fortunately, the photo has been deleted.
2) That She Compared the Election to Her Sex Life
The Democratic Party invited Lena Dunham to speak at their convention. Shockingly, this did not prove to be a successful strategy for reaching out to working class voters, who did not seem particularly receptive to Dunham’s political advice, like the time she compared voting for Jill Stein to sleeping with someone who is already in a relationship.

3) That Times She Posted a ‘Throwback’ Nipple Shot
When Dunham finished filming the final season of her HBO hipster drama Girls, she celebrated with a “throwback” photo of her nipple popping out of a dress. No one can explain why.
And thank you for this throwback to our first girls premiere in 2012 @joanaavillez – some things never change. Jo is one of my real life Girls, who inspired the show and shaped my whole twenties. Only we've never had a character as talented and together as she is 👯♂️ Anyone else stand in the rain crying today? Just me? Okay, cool!
4) That Time She Was a ‘Grabbed Pussy’ for Halloween
Dunham probably thought she was striking a blow against “rape culture” by satirizing Donald Trump’s infamous “grab her by the pussy” comments. But her zany outfit appeared to run afoul of Dunham’s self-professed aversion to “poor taste” Halloween costumes and “normalized sexual violence.” Oops.
5) That Time She Had a Canine Crystals Fetish
Dunham tried to cope with Hillary Clinton’s defeat by seeking refuge in the Arizona wilderness and asking the rocks for “guidance.” While her “spirit quest” does not appear to have been particularly successful, Dunham did discover a temporary “safe space” in the form of dogs posing with magic crystals on their heads.
6) That Time She Was a ‘Human Wastebasket’
For no apparent reason, Dunham posted a series of Instagram videos online in which the apparently drunk celeb described herself as a “human wastebasket.” This was the most compelling evidence that her efforts to avoid a post-election public meltdown had failed.
7) That Time She Took a Toilet Selfie
Speaks for itself, really. On the bright side, Dunham eventually deleted the bizarre photo and acknowledged it was in poor taste, so at least we know she is capable of feeling embarrassed.
8) That Time She Had an Abortion Fantasy
Once again, Dunham was forced to apologize after annoying basically everyone. The socially aware celebrity expressed a desire to have an abortion in order to combat the “cultural stigma” attached to the procedure. She also thought having an abortion would make her more authentically pro-choice, or something. Bipartisan outrage ensued.
9) That Time She Was a Topless Christmas Mermaid
Yes, this really happened.
