Tiffany Haddish seemingly opened a can of worms last week when she revealed in a GQ interview that she had once witnessed an actress BITE Beyoncé on the face. Before long, internet sleuths everywhere were running rampant with theories of who the mystery biter might be, with everyone from Sara Foster and Taraji P. Henson to Sanaa Lathan being thrown in the ring of possible culprits. There’s a new contender in the running, however, and even her own mom thinks she’s a plausible candidate!
Lena Dunham denied any allegations of involvement early on, taking to Twitter to say, “As the Patron Saint of ‘She would do that…’ I didn’t.” Case closed, right? Not quite.
The American Horror Story: Cult actress was forced to address the issue once more over the weekend when she was apparently bombarded in an airport by paparazzi demanding to know if she was indeed the biter in question.
She denied any involvement once more, saying, “I basically only leave home for work and ginger ale,” and “No, you do not need to know.”
Still, people had their suspicions… including Dunham’s own mother!
“Can someone explain to my mom why anyone THINKS I bit Beyoncé?” she asked. “She seems mad and also weirdly doubtful of me…”
She concluded her thoughts on the matter by saying that having to deny biting anyone as an adult was “its own special hell/not the reality I wanted to inhabit.”
