Lena Dunham, the Jewish star of hit sitcom Girls, has joined a list of celebrities backing Jeremy Corbyn as the next Prime Minister.
Ms Dunham, who is American, has urged her British fans to vote Labour in the general election on Thursday.
The actress, who supported Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton in last year’s US presidential election, said Mr Corbyn was a chance for the UK to have “a fair and just leader”.
She declared her support in a Instagram post on Monday evening and criticised President Trump for attacking London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Twitter following the London Bridge terror attack.
She wrote: “We here in America have watched in horror as our siblings in the UK have been attacked these past weeks and our president has been unable to offer so much as a word of condolence, only using this to push forward his racist and xenophobic agenda.
“We no longer have the option to pretend that what happens in Britain or America is separate. We do not live in fiefdoms. We must all work together to quell the tide of hate and complacency.”
The actress added: “Which is why, despite my US Passport, I desperately urge my UK friends/fans/frenemies to get out and vote for the Labour Party. With Jeremy Corbyn you have a chance at a fair and just leader who will temper the fascism and darkness of our current American moment.
“Thank you for considering, for getting your butts out there and for knowing- even when you feel abandoned by electoral politics- that your vote is all we have. This Thursday, June 8!”
Ms Dunham joins a list of celebrity Corbyn supporters, such as comedians Ricky Gervais and Russell Brand, who have declared their backing for the Labour leader.
