Lena Dunham Explained Why She’s Not Actually Moving to Canada

Lena Dunham was one of the celebrities who was adamant about packing up and moving to Canada if Donald Trump became president, but now she’s explaining why she won’t actually be making the move.


Lena posted an explanation to her Instagram account on Wednesday.

“Today I received a letter (yes, on paper) that read ‘don’t let the door hit you on the ass when you cross the border into Canada.’ This is actually one of the more polite notes I’ve gotten recently, and I’ll survive it just fine. And you know what else I’ve realized I can survive, as a Jewish pro-choice sexual assault survivor with a queer family member and a belief that we are all exactly & beautifully equal? I can survive staying in this country, MY country, to fight and love and use my embarrassment of blessings to do what’s right.”

Lena admitted that she broke out into hives when Hillary Clinton lost the election. She went on to say:

“It’s easy to joke about moving to Canada. It’s harder to see, and to love, the people who fill your mailbox with hate. It’s harder to see what needs to be done and do it. It’s harder to live, fully and painfully aware of the injustice surrounding us, to cherish and fear your country all at once. But I’m willing to try. Will you try with me?”
