There’s a lotta other ways to be a public determine and I feel there’s room for us to often present up in public like regular individuals do. Once I have a look at that image you subjected to “caption this” criticism, I see a day well-spent writing, studying, having tea with a good friend. It’s unlucky that the times you approve of most are those the place I’m spending the least time on what actually issues. With love, Lena”
Perez rapidly responded, writing, “Effectively stated,” earlier than making an attempt to defend himself by including, “And the ‘fill within the clean’ wasn’t a criticism on my half. Neither was this put up,” referring to a different picture he posted of her earlier that day
He then turned Dunham’s remark itself into its personal Instagram put up, writing on a display seize of her phrases, “Lena posted this on our final photograph.
