Lena Waithe Denies Stealing Idea For New Show: ‘I Would Never Steal Another Artist’s Work’

Lena Waithe has responded to recent allegations that she stole writer Nina Lee’s work for Girls Room — the name of her brand new project with Dove.

According to Waithe, she’d never even seen Lee’s work:

“There has been an accusation floating around that I want to address. In 2019, I partnered with @Dove for their project #GirlsRoom. Prior to my joining the project, in 2017 a @Dove partner came up with the title and the concept from which my scripts were based. I was brought on to write the scripts and produce the content,” she tweeted.
