Louis C.K. Endorses Lena Dunham’s ‘Girls’

Friday, May 4 by
Well then why don't you marry it? 

Either you love it or you hate it. But you probably hate it. Until now…

HBO’s Girls has slipped its tip into history by becoming the most divisive show on television in record time. There was public outcry about the lack of multiracial characters after the pilot episode aired. Then, after the second week’s viewing, the outcry shifted to, Hey, is this any good? Viewers fell into two camps with the smaller of which enjoying the show and singing its praises. Go right on ahead and add Louis CK to that lot.

As you see in the tweet above, Louis CK has shown public support to Lena Dunham and her show via his Twitter account. It’s a big pull in the constant tug of war over the quality of the comedic drama with many of the show’s supporters retweeting his post while show detractors are addressing CK directly in the debate with questions like, “Then why don’t you just marry it?!!”

I get the sense that this discussion will continue on for weeks to come. Raises a larger debate though about CK himself. That being, did he send this tweet from the computer where he “entertains” himself? Because, ewwwwwww.
