Actress and activist Lena Dunham has canceled a visit at the Gateway scheduled for Friday evening. The event was part of a series of Ohio campaign stops that were to be held on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton before weekend early voting begins Oct. 29.

According to the Clinton campaign’s original news release, Dunham was set to speak on Clinton’s college-affordability plan, as well as Clinton’s background on women’s rights.

Dunham, an Oberlin College graduate, also canceled three other Ohio events scheduled for Friday.

Update, Oct. 28, 12:05 p.m.: The campaign has not yet given a reason for the cancellations, however Dunham posted a photo of herself and her boyfriend, musician Jack Antonoff, on Instagram Thursday. The caption for the photo stated she was feeling under the weather.

“We are breeding a terrible virus in this apartment no one should get near us ever again and there’s a chance we shouldn’t get near each other #insicknessandinhealth,” Dunham wrote.
