For everyone wondering why Melissa Joan Hart and Lena Dunham are feuding, the answer is…they aren’t. These rumors appear to have been started by a tipster who wrote into DeuxMoi saying that “MJH has it out for Lena Dunham” and that they’ve been “beefing for a while.”
Melissa initially shut down this narrative on Instagram, writing, “So I don’t normally pay any attention to the tabloid rumor mill but numerous friends have asked me about my ‘rivalry’ with @lenadunham and I’m truly confused. We have no ‘beef,’ and as far as I remember, we haven’t even had the pleasure of meeting, let alone having enough of a relationship to warrant any time to discuss drag queens.” She went on to note that she is a fan of Lena’s work and hopes to “share a latte someday.”
Melissa then spoke about the “feud” some more to Entertainment Tonight, emphasizing, “I don’t even think I’ve ever met Lena Dunham, and somehow, my friends have been telling me there is a feud between us, and I got so many texts about it that I was like, I think I have to say something about this, I don’t know if a lot of people know this whole thing.”
She added that she went down a “deep, dark rabbit hole” and “decided to join Reddit” to look into the rumors, which was a “mistake.”
“I looked at what people were saying about me, and I was like *gags*—I had to take a break,” she said. “I had to step away because, apparently, I don’t even understand it….It’s rare that I find that hate. I don’t seek it out, but I certainly did recently, just to see if there was something that I did say. Why would I say something about it? I’ve never mentioned her, I’ve never crossed paths with her. So it’s just bizarre how social media or the media, in general, can just take something and spin it out.”
Kay, so moral of the story is Melissa Joan Hart and Lena Dunham have never met, aren’t beefing, and there’s no drama to be found. Moving on!
