Check out this storified exchange between Ayesha A. Siddiqi (@pushinghoops on twitter) and Lena Dunham (@lenadunham on twitter) after Lena posted the casually racist photo in which she draped a scarf over her head and connected it to a “fundamentalist/goth attitude”: Re: Lena Dunham’s ‘fundamentalist attitude’

Ayesha’s description of the exchange:

I called out Lena Dunham for captioning a photo of herself in a headscarf with “I had a real goth/fundamentalist attitude when I woke up from my nap.” I went on to explain why it was ignorant and she understood and apologized. The following is that exchange plus related commentary.
