Lesley Arfin, one of the writers of HBO series Girls, on Twitter.
I suppose this is a joke? Is this how she deals with commentary about the lack of diversity in the show? I am baffled, someone throw me a rope!

WHOA - WTF?
so there is a show about women in New York City that has no POC. It gets critiqued because in 20-fucking-12 its kind of embarassing to not put serious thought into the fact that you present day NEW YORK CITY as an all white venue in TV show. A problem we see time and time again where the people in power erase those who aren’t them. It goes without saying that this is a LEGITIMATE CRITIQUE.
And one of the writers of the show, instead of saying “yeah, we honestly didn’t think or care about this, we were really just focusing on our life & reality, which involves excluding POC from the world of NYC” or even “audiences don’t care if the cast is diverse and we would rather market the show to the mostly-white HBO audiences anyway” - you know, some honest shit that I can at least say “yeah, that sounds about right”. instead she comes back with a non-sensical attack/retort? On a LEGITIMATE CRITIQUE THAT A 3 YR OLD CAN MAKE?
at least its nice knowing that the people who make the media that we all consume could honestly give a fuck about how they represent America falsely and will just demean you and insult you if you point it out. at least they can’t use the “it was an accident” excuse anymore…
