Lena: I won't say sorry

FOX News

Lena Dunham is done with meaningless apologizing ... especially when it comes to the workplace. The 30-year-old "Girls" creator wrote an essay titled "Sorry Not Sorry" for LinkedIn, in which she calls out both herself and other women's tendencies to constantly say sorry even when the situation doesn't warrant it. And joining the long list of celebs inspired by Beyonce, Dunham is praising the "Sorry" singer for her feminist themes in "Lemonade."
