Like a train wreck you can't turn away from, Lena Dunham is back on blast with racist tweets from 2010 and 2011 that were resurfaced and are spreading like wildfire.

For the 30-year-old actress, the backlash must feel routine after she found herself apologizing just days ago following aninterviewwith Amy Schumer. During the segment, Dunham claimed Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. chose to avert his male gaze from her presence at the Met Gala because she was sporting a tuxedo and a bow tie. It wasn’t long before swarms of Twitter users criticized the self-proclaimed feminist for her narcissism and sexualization of the black male body. She later apologized for the statements, which she attributed to her own insecurityas a plus-sized woman among a room of super models.

This week, is a not-so-shocking series of events, the star’s digital past has come back to haunt her with a set of racially insensitive tweets from 2010 and 2011. The Tweets include one from 2011 in which she wrote, "An uncool thought to have: 'is that guy walking in the dark behind me a rapist? Never mind, he's Asian.'"

Outraged Twitter users are demanding an apology — some telling her to delete her account — and if the past speaks for itself, Dunham's next move is on its way.
