Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller has a message to Lena Dunham’s critics: “Shame on you.”
Fuller dropped by EW Radio at the ATX Festival in Austin, Texas, and told Jessica Shaw about his views on the violence against women and “slut shaming” on television.
Shaw first asked about Fuller’s previous interview with EW, where he talked about rape scenes on TV. Then the conversation shifted to the Girls creator. “I love Girls, I think it’s a great story capturing a group of women’s’ experience,” he said. “But when [Dunham] drops her clothes, I think she looks beautiful—I think the naked body is beautiful. Then she is attacked for being honest about what it is to be a young woman. And shame on them. Shame on them.”
Here’s the interview clip:
