Lena Dunham SLAMS Kanye West’s controversial new video for Famous

by

Filming a collection of naked celebrities in bed together is always going to get a reaction – even if those celebrities are actually made of wax.

So it's little surprise that Kanye West's new Famous video has caused a whole lot of WTF feelings online.

Although most of those who actually feature in the controversial clip – which shows everyone from Taylor Swift to Donald Trump in bed with Kim Kardsahian West and her infamous video-creating husband – have yet to comment, Girls creator Lena Dunham has stepped up to offer her thoughts on what she's dubbed "one of the more disturbing ‘artistic’ efforts in recent memory".

In a lengthy Facebook post the avid feminist divided the Kardashian-West household by slamming Kanye’s work while praising Kim and her sisters for the way they represent women.

She wrote: “Like many pop culture addicted Americans, I wait with bated breath for what Kanye West will do next. Aside from his Twitter mayhem, he has created some really ‘next level sh*t’.”

“I could also happily watch Kim Kardashian West chip the paint off a window ledge for hours and be fascinated.”

“I admire that whole family, love the way they depict women as better in numbers and masters of their own destiny. I'd spend all summer at Kamp Kardashian.”

“But…the Famous video is one of the more disturbing ‘artistic’ efforts in recent memory.”

After referencing the recent Stanford rape case, Bill Crosby's sexual assault allegations and the alarming issue of sexual assaults being streamed online, the author said: “I'm sure that Bill Cosby doll being in the bed alongside Donald Trump is some kind of statement, that I'm probably being trolled on a super high level.”

“I know that there's a hipper or cooler reaction to have than the one I'm currently having. But guess what? I don't have a hip cool reaction."

"Seeing a woman I love like Taylor Swift…reduced to a pair of waxy breasts…makes me feel sad and unsafe and worried for the teenage girls who watch this and may not understand that grainy roving camera as the stuff of snuff films.”

“Here's the thing, Kanye: you're cool. Make a statement on fame and privacy and the Illuminati or whatever is on your mind!”

“But I can't watch it, don't want to watch it, if it feels informed and inspired by the aspects of our culture that make women feel unsafe even in their own beds, in their own bodies.”
