‘Girls’ creator and star Lena Dunham has sparked controversy with her latest video in which she encourages people to vote for President Obama. In the endorsement ad named ‘My First Time’ Dunham speaks directly into the camera and compares voting to having sex for the first time.
‘You want to do it with a great guy. It should be with a guy with beautiful…somebody who really cares about and understands women,’ she says in the advertisement.
Dunham’s advertisement is part of the president’s campaign work to motivate young female voters, who played a pivotal role in sending President Obama to White House in 2008.
One of the questions that were raised by conservatives after watching the video was if voting is so important for Dunham, why didn’t she vote when she first had the chance in 2004 when John Kerry faced off George W. Bush?
Check out the video that has created so much controversy.
