Which brings us to Lena Dunham, who witnessed two American Airlines employees having a transphobic conversation.
She continued, "I think it reflects badly on uniformed employees of your company to have that kind of dialogue going on".
Though she was traveling with another airline, Dunham decided she couldn't let their conversation slide and contacted American Airlines directly.
Dunham first tweeted about the incident early on Thursday morning, while she said she was waiting for her delayed flight to depart from JFK International Airport in NY.

American Airlines responded to Dunham's concerns, asking her for details about her gate location in an effort to, presumably, track down the employees in question. The actress said she was walking to baggage claim when she overheard two female crew members talking "about how trans kids are a trend they'd never accept a trans child and transness is gross".
Yesterday, Lena Dunham live tweeted her trash fire of a flight. "Transgender people deserve our respect and compassion!" "That was the worst part of this night", Dunham tweeted, after being allowed to board a plane, waiting for an hour, and then being forced off of it. Hearing "transphobic talk" was worse than being forced off an airplane after an hour of sitting.
Lena also wrote them: 'Awareness starts at home but jobs can set standards of practice'.
In a statement to ABC News, American Airlines confirmed that an investigation is taking place. "From the team members we hire to the customers we serve, inclusion and diversity is a way of life at American Airlines", a spokesperson said.
