Lena Dunham doesn't run her own Twitter account anymore and says people like some of Justin Bieber's fans are part of the reason why. 

Lena Dunham Tweets Disapproval of Justin Bieber's 'What Do You Mean' Lyrics

Speaking with her Lenny newsletter co-founder Jenni Konner on Re/code Decode Monday, Dunham referenced a recent tweet she posted that upset Beliebers. In it, she referenced Bieber’s "What Do U Mean" lyrics, "When you nod your head yes/But you wanna say no/What do you mean?" 

Tweeted, "Let's do away with pop songs where a girl nods yes when she means no and vice versa, k?"

 

“I don’t care," she said. "I said something about Justin Bieber last week and supposedly there’s been massive trolling by Justin Bieber fans, but I don’t know, so I don’t care."

Dunham continued, "I was being attacked by Justin Bieber fans, I would be upset every day if I was reading tweets from 13-year-old girls that were like ’You’re fat, and Justin Bieber’s our angel,’ but I’m not. So, I don’t have to be stressed about it. I’ve never even thought about it once."
