Woke celebrity and social justice warrior Lena Dunham has been fighting against hurtful Halloween costumes forever. But this year, she forgot what she preaches and wore the anti-Trump costume “Grabbed Pussy.”

Yesterday, she posted her costume on Instagram with a caption: “Happy Halloween! With love from a Grabbed Pussy.”

But would Dunham’s 2016 costume be acceptable to the pre-2016 Dunham? The evidence suggests not.

In 2012, Lena Dunham came under fire for suggesting she wants to dress up as a Canadian serial killers Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. She apologized, claiming that she doesn’t “find rape or murder funny” and such Halloween costumes would actually be in poor taste.

Later, she complained about not being able to dress for Halloween because “it’s been years since I thought of a costume that wasn’t going to hurt someone close to me.”

Dunham has also rallied against so-called “rape culture,” claiming it normalizes sexual assault.

Does Lena Dunham find sexual assault funny?
