Actress and would-be activist Lena Dunham tried to get two American Airlines employees in trouble this week for double-plus-ungood speech about transgender people.

Dunham claimed Wednesday night that she overheard a conversation between two female attendants who said that “transness is gross,” and American Airlines has said they are investigating her allegations. Lex Jurgen joined Friday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” to talk about her vigilante social justice as part of the week’s Hollywood Headlines.

The “Girls” creator said that she overheard “transphobic talk” while her flight was delayed at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. “At this moment in history we should be teaching our employees about love and inclusivity @AmericanAir,” Dunham tweeted. “That was worst part of this night (sic).”

In a screenshot, Dunham appeared to show a conversation between her Twitter account and American Airlines. She said she overheard two American Airlines attendants "talking about how trans kids are a trend they'd never accept a trans child and transness is gross."

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6–9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
