“I felt bad because I really do love the show Girls, and enjoy it, and I admire the girl who writes it. It makes me feel bad, and I think she is getting the impression that I somehow think she’s just a talentless little fat chick, a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill.” Stern added, “She keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape. I don’t want to see that.”
Dunham winningly responded to Stern’s comments speaking with David Letterman,
“I’m a Howard Stern fan and really think he has earned the right to free speech and he should just go for it. But he did say something that is so funny that I want to get it on my gravestone: ‘Congrats to her. It’s so hard for little fat chicks to get anything going these days.’ I want my gravestone to say, ‘She was a little fat chick and she got it going.”
Refreshing to see a celebrity take the high road these days!
