Berger says the break is amicable.
Representatives for Dunham and musician Antonoff confirmed the break-up to E! Antonoff, who has produced for Lorde and Taylor Swift, regularly appeared in Dunham's social media feeds, and in 2013 the Girls creator directed a short film for Rachel Antonoff - Jack's fashion designer sister - to showcase the fall collection. "Our 5.5 year anniversary was yesterday. That said, the people who join this movement without taking any kind of personal accountability for the ways in which their own words and decisions have helped to perpetuate the culture they are fighting against, that's hard for me to reconcile". "He showed me the joy of collaboration", Dunham penned in an essay for Variety three short months ago.

When Dunham initially walked back her defense of Miller and apologized, it led to writer and Lenny Letter contributor Zinzi Clemmons vowing to never write for Dunhman again and called for women-and black women in particular-to divest from her. "And we kind of looked at each other and we were like 'Oh, God what have we done?'"
She then said she would continue wearing the ring Antonoff gifted her as a symbol for the love she'll always have for her ex.
We're all for unity in the face of sexual assault and harassment, but Dunham's background of defending alleged rapists may not make her the best spokesperson for this movement. "To those struggling with anxiety, OCD, depression: I know it's mad annoying when people tell you to exercise, and it took me about 16 medicated years to listen".
