Howard Stern apologizes for bashing Lena Dunham

By Gavriella Tjandra,

After bashing the creator and writer of Girls last Monday, the self-proclaimed media king apologized for his behavior in his Sirius-XM show this morning.

According to E!, last Monday, Stern called Dunham "a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill," followed by the whole list of his grievances about the creator of the TV series.

He continued his rant, "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."

Today, he felt sorry for his own words, and proclaimed on the air that he really was.

"I felt bad, because I really do love the show Girls and enjoy it, and I admired the girl who writes it."

"So I said to (Girls' producer Gary Dell'Abate), would you please contact Lena Dunham and please tell her that I would like to explain myself to her on the air and apologize to her because I do love the show, and it makes me feel bad that she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless fat chick."

According to

Dunham, on the other hand, responded to the bashing very positively.

She said on the Late Show with David Letterman, "I am a Howard Stern fan and I really think that he has earned the right to free speech and he should just go for it."

"But he did say something that I thought was so funny that I want to get on my gravestone, where he said, 'Congrats to her, it's so hard for little fat chicks go get anything going these days,' and it put me in the best mood!"

She then continued, "I just wanted to be like, my gravestone says, 'She was a little fat chick, but she got it goin'."
