“Girls” star and creator Lena Dunham was detained by the TSA recently for possessing what she considered a “cute little cat” at Los Angeles International Airport, Today reports.

Dunham was carrying a “self-defense key chain.”

“It’s shaped like a cat — it goes over your knuckles,” she told Seth Meyers on “Late Night” on Thursday, “but I guess the two ears could gut somebody.”

TSA agents conducted a criminal background check and refused to let Dunham make calls while they investigated.

“I understood sort of intellectually it could be used as a weapon,” she added, “but really all I thought was like, What a cute little cat!”
