A video released by TMZ yesterday showed NFL player Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée – now his wife – so hard she was knocked out.
Following public outrage at the footage, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced Rice had been "suspended indefinitely", and the Baltimore Ravens announced they had terminated Rice's contract.
Later that evening, Lena Dunham took to Twitter to express her disgust with the NFL, beginning by retweeting writer Zerlina Maxwell's article about the incident for Cosmopolitan.
In the article, Maxwell said "the newly released video exposes the victim-blaming lie that the NFL and the Ravens fed the public all along".
Dunham went on to express her own disgust at the NFL.
And pointed out that it's "still abuse" if a victim of domestic violence doesn't press charges.
She said she wanted to find the mothers of "some of you boys on Twitter" to let them know "what kind of shit you're up to".
And added that she has to believe that "some kind of awakening is happening".
We hope so too, Lena.
