Lena Dunham: Tinder is a tool for murder

Lena DunhamThe HBO show Girls follows four girls in their twenties living in New York City trying to figure out their lives and complicated relationships, but don’t expect to see the app Tinder to be featured any time soon.  The creator and star of the show Lena Dunham, 28, said in a recent People magazine video that she is leery of the site. She stated, “Tinder scares me. It’s not about being famous, it’s not about being anything, it’s not even about being in a committed relationship. I believe Tinder is a tool for murder.”

Also featured in the video were Girls costars Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Allison Williams, who had contrasting views about the popular dating app, if they even knew about it at all. Zosia, 26, proclaimed her confusion about what the app was and Jemima, 29, and Allison, 26, were quick to explain. However, their perceptions of the site were a bit different. Jemima explained, “It’s for having sex specifically.” Allison, on the other hand, saw that only as a possibility. She said, “If you’re talented at it, you can have sex eventually.”

Whichever version they believed in, the stars didn’t think it would be useful for any of their characters. Allison remarked, “I don’t think any of these people would survive Tinder.”

Lena was far more interested in another matchmaker app. She said, “Have you seen there’s Furry Friends? It’s Tinder for dogs. You put in your desires for a dog and then you swipe and they match you with a dog.” Fingers crossed that app appears on the show.  ~Janine Wyslobicky
