Lena Dunham Weighs in on Jordyn Woods

Actress Lena Dunham adds her two cents on the very controversial Jordyn Woods and Tristian Thompson scandal.

Last week, the Kardashians may have broken the internet once and for all when Jordyn Woods, best friend of Kylie Jenner, reportedly had a romantic encounter with Tristian Thompson, philandering partner of Kylie’s big sister Khloe. The saga began on Season 13 of KUWTK, when Khloe and Thompson went public with their relationship, and to say that their courtship has been rocky ever since is an understatement; days before Khloe gave birth to her and Thompson’s daughter last year, Thompson was caught cheating.

So when TMZ broke the story about Woods and Thompson, coming with receipts backing their claim, the story was both surprising and not. Even so, the internet went into shock, unloading swells support for Khloe and, conversely, hate for Woods.

Never one to shy away from controversy, Lena Dunham recently weighed in on the drama. Attempting to soothe the sting of Jordyn’s fall from grace, Dunham shared that at Woods’s age, she kissed her best friend’s crush in a bathroom during a dinner party. She explained that the subsequent guilt left her bedridden, which was punishment enough. After ostensibly receiving blowback, Dunham added, “I’m not coming for the K’s! I love and respect them. It’s just A LOT of media attention on a very young girl’s sexual choices and my heart aches when I see that.”

As Dunham’s mini scandal-within-a-scandal regarding Woodsgate (or Thompsongate, depending on your POV) proves, the alleged rendezvous between Woods and Thompson has sufficiently spun out of control. But soon Jordyn Woods will have a chance to tell her side of the story, with an appearance on The Red Table Talk, the web series hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith and daughter Willow Smith, slated for tomorrow. For better or worse, it’s one dialogue for which Dunham won’t be weighing in.
