Lena Dunham did her best to destroy this season of “American Horror Story: Cult” during her appearance Tuesday night.
This season of AHS had been incredible, and I previously wrote about my pleasant surprise about how the show had managed to play the politics of the 2016 election pretty straight. Well, the show went into a nosedive after Lena Dunham made an appearance as a killer feminist in the latest episode. She portrays a character based off of Valerie Solanas, who shot Andy Warhol.
Her performance was downright awful. Some of the worst acting I’ve ever seen, and fans on the internet seemed to agree.

Why did this have to happen? This show was flying high. It was certainly in the top half of all the AHS seasons. Last night might have changed all of that.
Dunham is one of the least talented people to ever find herself in front of a camera, and yet, she has somehow managed to get famous. Hopefully AHS is able to lose the deadweight, and pull this season out of its downward spiral.
As for Lena Dunham? She should maybe stick to telling stories about how Odell Beckham Jr. doesn’t want to have sex with her, and leave the television shows to the people with talent.
