Alas, Lena Dunham, we hardly knew ye.
Well, that’s not true. We actually knew ye well. Too well, thanks to your tendency to bombard us with TMI and creepy confessions.

More from The Hollywood Reporter:
On hourlong podcast Re/code Decode, the Girls co-creator revealed that she has freed herself of social media hate and now has someone else tweet messages on her personal account.
“I don’t look at Twitter anymore. I tweet, but I do it through someone else,” she told host Kara Swisher, adding that she doesn’t even know her account password. “I really appreciate that anybody follows me at all, and so I didn’t want to cut off my relationship to it completely, but it really, truly wasn’t a safe space for me.”
According to THR, her decision to bid farewell was due at least in part to nasty comments she received after posting this photo on Instagram:
We certainly don’t condone any actual “verbal abuse” that may have been directed at her, but at the same time, she makes her living as a provocateur, deliberately pushing people’s buttons for attention.
@THR oh wha wha wha! She wrote herself as the star character in a show wherein she undresses on the reg, but she can't handle its response?

@THR Good. That's one less child molester on Twitter.

We’d be lying if we said we’ll miss her around these parts.
@THR I'll sleep better knowing that .
