Former President Bill Clinton made a surprise appearance at Sunday's Golden Globe awards to introduce Steven Spielberg's historical epic "Lincoln."
Though many were excited at the politician's presence (he received a standing ovation from most of the crowd), none was more visibly riled up than Lena Dunham, star of the hit HBO show "Girls."
But for Dunham to be so excited about Clinton — a president famous for being an accused womanizer and having an affair with his intern, Monica Lewinski — was apparently too much for some detractors on the right to bear.
"Women saying 'I'm not a feminist' is my greatest pet peeve," Dunham once told the Metro UK. "I know for a long time that I was embarrassed to call out misogyny because I was then going to be that complaining girl who can't let it go. But the fact is, we can't let it go – not until we feel like we have been heard."
The dissenting voices took to Twitter.
Some joked about the situation.
Others were not as amused.
Dunham took two Golden Globes home for her work on "Girls."
