Lena Dunham Says She'll Pay Acts On Book Tour

This is what happens when you call out Lena Dunham. The "Girls" star, who is kicking off a huge book tour in support of "Not That Kind of Girl," was criticized on Monday after it was reported she was not paying artists who are performing during her tour events. In response, Dunham confirmed via Twitter that she is now compensating all the performers and also took a shot at Gawker for posting an article that revealed how much she was making on the tour.

After writing "some good points were raised" and she would ensure "all opening acts would be compensated for their time," Dunham posted this:

Before announcing that performers would be paid, Dunham had gathered a variety of opening acts through an open call on her website. The New York Times reported the acts were originally performing for free.

In the end, Dunham seemed pretty sympathetic to the whole situation:

Season 4 of "Girls" premieres in 2015 on HBO. Dunham's book is out now.
