In an interview with Time Out New York magazine, the "Girls" star discussed the sexual assault allegations against Cosby and compared it to the violent extermination of the Jews.

"Very excited about my pop art Time Out NY cover. Additionally I'm already aware comparing Bill Cosby to the Holocaust wasn't my best analogy. With Love from your special rape-hating Jew friend LENA," Dunham wrote on Instagram, reports aceshowbiz.com.
