Lena Dunham recently was caught in the middle of a Twitter controversy when her friend Lisa Lampanelli posted a photo of her on the social network calling her “my ni**a”.

This caused most of Lisa’s followers and a lot of the Twitterverse to go into a frenzy, since she used the N-word.

The Girls star didn’t response to her use of the word until an online journalist called her out for causing even more controversy by staying silent.

Lena responded to the journalist:

It looks like that’s all that was needed for Shayla to read in order to forgive Lena, since she tweeted in response:

We’re glad that Lena wasn’t afraid to finally speak out and stand up for waht she believes in, even if it goes against a friend.

What do you guys think of Lisa using the N-word and Lena’s response?
