Lena Dunham is a former model who rose to fame after a YouTube video of her singing along to a song about her father went viral.
The singer, 25, wrote about her family’s history of sexual abuse, the impact it had on her and her mother, and how she overcame it to become the self-styled model she is today.
Her comments, which have been picked up by other media, have provoked a storm of criticism from fans and others, with many people believing the singer is trying to make a personal point about her experiences as a young woman.

The backlash began when Dunham’s video of herself singing along in the song was shared on Instagram and other social media sites on Thursday.
Some of her comments have sparked a torrent of criticism, including a video on which she is seen being repeatedly punched in the face by a man.
Dunham, who was born in South Africa, said she was “deeply saddened” by the attack and asked fans to keep their voices out of the public conversation.
“I am deeply ashamed that I have made such a mistake and I am very sorry.” “
It was a terrifying and terrifying experience for me,” she wrote in the post.
“I am deeply ashamed that I have made such a mistake and I am very sorry.”
In a subsequent post, Dunham said she wanted to share the story with people she knows because she was in “horror mode”.
“I’m not sure how I am supposed to respond to this attack,” she said.
“But the only way I can tell you that I’m sorry is by letting my story be known.”
In the past, Dunham has been outspoken about her upbringing and sexuality.
In January, she addressed her fame after the internet reported she was dating her brother when in fact she was married to her high school sweetheart.
In a recent Instagram post, she shared a photo of her sister, Grace, with a caption that read, “It’s not who I am anymore, but I can’t hide who I used to be anymore.”
“The one thing I will always be is an artist,” she added.
“We were born into a world of sexual and racial inequality and I will never stop working to be the best artist I can be, and the best sister I can ever be.”
The singer also spoke out against her father, who she said “was never abusive, but was just not a good father”.
“Growing up with my dad was a lot like growing up in a small town,” she explained.
“Growing up as a black girl and in an African-American family meant that you never really had any freedom.”
“Growing Up Black” has been Dunham’s biggest hit to date.
It has been watched more than 8 million times on YouTube, with millions of views from her more than 11 million YouTube followers.
Dunham said that the video was the first time she had ever spoken publicly about her relationship with her father.
“My dad has always been a very gentle and kind man,” she continued.
The video went viral in March, and Dunham has since received thousands of new fans, many of whom have come out in support of her and others like her. “
His love was unconditional, and it made me so proud to be a black woman.”
