Lena Dunham apologizes, profusely, for offensive Halloween tweet
Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, and B.J. Novak are all best friends, natch. So of course they would plan their Halloween costumes together:

Following friend Mindy Kaling’s suggestion that she, Dunham, and B.J. Novak dress as the West Memphis Three for Halloween, Dunham upped the ante in her patented, unflinching, “I’ll-say-anything” way, tweeting, “You guys go as killer Canadian couple Paul Bernardo & Karla Homolka. I’ll be her sister they murdered. Scariest ...
