    Lena Dunham is quitting Twitter.

    The 'Girls' creator - who has been dating fun. band member Jack Antonoff for two years - has vowed to quit the micro-blogging site after receiving death threats and insults.

    Speaking on the red carpet of the Golden Globes today at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, she said: "I'm trying to create a safer place for myself. People threaten my life and tell me what a cow I am."

    The 28-year-old actress - who has almost two million followers - regularly posts witty remarks on the social network, but admitted she doesn't check it as often as she used to because of the negative comments she receives on a regular basis.

    She continued: "I check it occasionally but it's not the same co-dependence. A lot of people I love on the internet but you can't read those without reading deranged neo-cons telling me I should be buried under a pile of rocks."

    Last week, Lena spoke out about the criticism she had received after revealing in her recent book 'Not That Kind of Girl', that she was date-raped when she was younger, admitting she found it "very very painful".

    She said: "It's a very very painful thing to share an episode that personal and receive criticism, but what I received was only a small percentage of the doubt and victim-blaming that most women who are sexually assaulted in this country experience. I am a celebrity with a platform and a lot of incredible support.

    "Most women who come forward with accusations of sexual assault don't have those benefits.

    "[They] don't have my legal and emotional and financial supports, and so for me I really feel like it enhanced my understanding of the cause and hopefully will make me a better advocate and activist in the future."

    Despite saying she would be leaving imminently, the star continued to post updates throughout the ceremony, joking the 'Foxcatcher' actor Mark Ruffalo had seen her searching her own name online.

    She quipped: "Oh don't worry @markruffalo just caught me googling myself #goldenglobes (sic)."

    i REALLY hate this pig

    I find it amazing that she knew the political leanings of her rapist. Wow, she's a real researcher.

    She's willing to make up stories to garner attention of any sort.

    She's an embarrassment.

    Lena Dunham quitting Twitter is about as likely as Lena Dunham quitting cheesecake.

    Can anyone imagine the backlash if a Conservative woman celeb made up a rape story with a Dim/Leftie/AA as the offender and it was proven a lie? :facepalm:
