AMY SCHUMER AND LENA DUNHAM BOND OVER TROLLS: Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham have bonded over the abuse they both receive online. “It’s a pretty specific experience,” Dunham told The New York Times. “Most people don’t know what it’s like to open social media in the morning and hear you are physically, socially and politically worthless.” Dunham tells the Times that Schumer can take it though: “She’s titanium, and part of her skill is the ability to make it look easy.” Schumer is nervous about her upcoming special Growing, on Netflix, which she filmed while pregnant with her and husband Chris Fischer’s first child: “I don’t know what’s going to happen with my special — what’s the thing people will be furious about? It sucks to have everyone mad at me. But I’m not too careful.”
