While most people have come out to praise Justin Bieber's new song, "What Do You Mean?," Lena Dunham has taken to Twitter to criticize the Biebs for his lyrics.

"Let's do away with pop songs where a girl nods yes when she means no and vice versa, k?," she wrote Monday. While she doesn't directly address the 21-year-old singer, she pretty much quotes the words to the song verbatim. Here are the actual lyrics:

"What do you mean / When you nod your head yes but you wanna say no / What do you mean?" Bieber sings on the first track off of his forthcoming album. "Better make up your mind / What do you mean?"

But the Girls star didn't know what she was getting into when she criticized Bieber; she soon found out. Beliebers fired back at Dunham for mocking the new hit, also using Twitter to let the HBO star know she was very wrong. People even got creative, asking her what does she mean by her tweet.

"@lenadunham #WhatDoYoMean ? It's a good Song to learn people to say what they actually means instead of saying one thing, meaning another," one user responded.

Another Belieber wrote, "@lenadunham ha, there's literally no vice versa in Justin's song. What he sings is completely inoffensive. Don't try tie this to no means no."

After receiving a ton of backlash, Dunham turned to Instagram to maybe say that she didn't have a problem. The photo she posted is a split of her and a baby-faced Bieber, which highlights the similarities in their haircuts (well, Bieber's former haircut).

"How could anyone think I have an issue with Bieber?" she asked in her caption. Instagram users took to the comment section to call her out once again, calling her "jealous," among other things. They might have once shared a haircut, but it doesn't look like they have much else in common.

Do you think Dunham was calling out Bieber? Sound off in the comments!
