We all know Lena Dunham is comfortable in her own skin and kudos to her for being proud of her body but what was a funny lighthearted sketch soon riled up her twitter fans after a tweet from her wasn’t received well.
On Saturday night (March 8), Lena Dunham stripped down to her birthday suit on Saturday Night Live for her sketch “Biblical Movie”, a proposed version of Adam and Eve inspired by Russell Crowe and Emma Watson’s film Noah.
The tale details Eve’s struggle as a twenty-something in the Garden of Eden.
But it was after the sketch that a twitter follower wrote to Dunham saying “You don’t always have to get naked!”. Dunham’s response (that she has since deleted) got her in hot water.
“Please tell that to my uncle, mister. He’s been making me!”
Oh dear…the usually witty and on point Dunham missed her mark with this one and her fans criticized her for trivializing sexual molestation.
After quickly removing her tweet, the Golden Globe winner responded with “I just made and deleted a not so great molestation joke. Sorry guys. I am really sleepy.” And followed up with “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,””But I should know better, and do. Even naked girls get embarrassed. Sleep well and thanks for an amazing weekend.”
Let’s hope she hasn’t disappointed too many fans with her comments!
