If you’ve been following the saga of Howard Stern and Lena Dunham since last week, you might be a little seasick with all the ups and downs their public words have taken — from insult to mock offense to love fest. To recap, Stern commented on Dunham’s frequent nudity on Girls, calling her “a little fat girl who kinda looks like Jonah Hill, and she keeps taking her clothes off, and it kind of feels like rape. … I learned that this little fat chick writes the show and directs the show and that makes sense to me because she’s such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on. … Good for her. It’s hard for little fat chicks to get anything going.”
When the writer/producer/star visited Letterman on Thursday night, she said she kind of loved his comment. “I want my gravestone to say, ‘She was a little fat chick and she got it going,’ ” she said, adding that she’s a huge Stern fan.
The backlash against Stern came fast and furious of course, but on Monday, the shock jock apologized, saying his comment was taken out of context and that he actually loves Girls. He also said he asked his producer to invite the newly minted two-time Golden Globe winner on the show.
Now, we can tell Lena feels forgiving about his first statement, but would you? Tell us.
