It's not the end of men, it's the evolution of men into better men. (beautiful animation by Sophie Koko Gate!) pic.twitter.com/Qtf0xyT5Ad

Hillary Clinton supporter Lena Dunham posted a video to Twitter on Wednesday supporting “the extinction of white men.”
The video features animation over audio of Dunham asking her father, Carroll Dunham, how he feels about such an extinction.
“Well, white men are a problem. Straight white men are a big problem, that’s for sure,” her father answers.
“But I actually feel pretty good about it,” he added. “I think straight white guys have been screwing things up for long enough. High time for straight white males to step back and let some other people do it.”
“That’s my dad!” Lena exclaimed, as the two laughed.
Twitter users were quick to point out that Dunham's video could easily be seen as sexist and racist.
@lenadunham Nice racist video.

@lenadunham judging entire groups of people based on skin color and gender. Sorry, I'll remain opposed to such things.

@lenadunham Holy crap this is racist & sexist. Congratulations, you actually stooped lower than most believed that you could.

@lenadunham You judge people based on their skin, sex and sexuality. You are no better than anti-gay people and white supremacists.
