Lena Dunham has made a lot of public apologies. Most recently, the Girls creator apologized for releasing a statement in defense of a male writer on her former show Girls who is accused of raping a woman. In what is becoming a tradition among celebrities, it appears that she wrote her apology on her phone’s Notes app, posting screenshots of it to Twitter. It wasn’t Dunham’s first long-winded apology, and it likely will not be her last. (See Dunham’s brief history of making apologies on The Cut.) What will Dunham apologize for next? A new parody Twitter account called Lena Dunham Apologizes is making some bets, and it’s great.

The tweets read like realistic, awful headlines involving Lena Dunham. It was created by two people who, according to their Twitter bios, live in Melbourne. But the location of the parody account lists Brooklyn, obviously.
