In a reverse decision, Dunham decides to compensate performers who were originally signed on to perform opening acts for her book tour without pay.
As an artist raised by artists, no one believes more than I do that creators should be fairly compensated for their work.
Dunham’s decision comes after controversy emerged when Gawker listed Dunham’s projected revenue for her book, and disclosed that the performers would not be compensated for their work.
Some good points were raised and I've ensured that all opening acts will be compensated for their time, their labor and their talents.
