It would be a stretch to say that Lena Dunham’s efforts to help track down a couple of gate attendants whom she overheard making transphobic remarks inspired an Associated Press photographer to find his own inner hero during a ball game Friday night.

The AP reports that photographer Mark J. Terrill didn’t hear the first part of a heated exchange between the Oakland A’s Matt Joyce and a fan, but he did overhear Joyce call the fan a gay slur and challenge him to a fight.
OH GOD NO

We are all Lena Dunham.
Since when is Lena Dunham an AP photographer?

Maybe the AP photographer could focus a little more on taking pictures than snitching on people who use language he doesn't like… https://t.co/Gb7HcxVFXH

I hope it was a hilarious slur.

Is far left ESPN going to make this the new phony outrage for the next 6 months? Maybe get congress to hold hearings on gay slurs in MLB.

Has the photographer apologized for being a little b*tch? Because this is a terrible standard to set and will end badly for the press.

Why not just put mics everywhere and have a team of SJW narcs pour through the transcripts and tell on everyone

Everyone. Can we just please get over ourselves?🙄
For crying out loud, this is getting tiresome.

American Airlines might not have been able to bring Dunham’s thought criminals to justice, but Matt Joyce was slapped with a two-game suspension without pay and will “take part in a public outreach initiative with PFLAG, a family and ally organization supporting LGBTQ community.”
He's been ordered to attend re-education camp and his salary will be "donated" to Red Guards pic.twitter.com/LG7ScTvhWk
