Lena Dunham apologises for molestation tweet following naked Saturday Night Live spoof
The Girls creator quickly deleted the tweet after she came under fire from her followers
Lena Dunham’s guest-hosting slot on Saturday Night Live continued to raise eyebrows well after she stripped naked for a Garden of Eden-inspired Girls spoof (scroll down to watch the video).
The creator of the HBO series became defensive when she received some negative feedback about her performance on Twitter.
One follower in particular posted at her: “You don't always have to get naked!“
To which she responded: “Please tell that to my uncle, mister. He's been making me!”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, her retort was met with a fair amount of online criticism, with several followers citing the post as in poor taste.
She soon deleted the post, and replaced it with the following:
I just made and deleted a not so great molestation joke. Sorry guys. I am really sleepy.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) March 10, 2014
"SNL has a way bigger audience than our usual cozy girls audience, so I was seeing a rash of very different kinds of twitter rage,” she continued. “But I should know better, and do. Even naked girls get embarrassed. Sleep well and thanks for an amazing weekend.”
During the spoof, Taran Killam portrayed Dunham’s Girls love interest, Adam, with Vanessa Bayer playing a snake version of Shoshanna.
“Can you please not apple shame me right now?” Dunham asked God, before eating the forbidden fruit. “Seriously, I know I committed original sin, but at least it’s original. I think I deserve some credit for that. Or at least a publishing deal.”
However, being naked did little to faze the actress, 27.
“There is an old saying, if you’re nervous about giving a speech, just imagine the audience naked,” she said. “Or at least imagine they haven’t seen you naked.”
