Lena Dunham has been famous for under a decade, yet has found a variety of ways of infuriating the masses. When you’re playing “Why is she trending on Twitter” with Dunham, it’s often because she’s said or done something cringe-worthy to outright awful. Remember when she made crass assumptions about the innermost thoughts of Odell Beckham Jr. and Drake? Or how she treated her sibling growing up or her dog recently? Or how the Girls creator criticized for a lack of inclusive casting on her New York City-set series is writing a script about the Syrian refugee experience? How about the time she publicly backed an alleged rapist, then tried to get in on a celeb-stuffed Time’s Up photo op? So after all that, what did she do this time that got her trending on Twitter? It’s pretty mild by comparison: she maybe lied about doing poppers (amyl nitrate) while casually treating gay men as edgy accessories.

On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Dunham appeared with singer Dua Lipa, whose song “Hallucinate” has been embraced by the gay community as an ode to the party drug. Lipa seemed surprised by this news, while Dunham barreled into a dubious anecdote about her experience with poppers.

“I think you’ll appreciate this, Andy,” Dunham interjected, “The one time I did poppers—because you know I love to surround myself with beautiful homosexuals—the one time I tried poppers in my early twenties, it led to me eating a whole cheesecake. I don’t think that’s what’s supposed to happen.”

Cohen confirmed, the munchies are not a part of poppers’ experience profile: “I’ve never gotten hungry from poppers. I just have to say.”

Here’s the clip.

Here’s how Twitter reacted.
