Girls star is left apologising after she posts controversial tweet

Girls star Lena Dunham was left red faced after she posted a pretty controversial tweet on Saturday night. After taking part in a nude sketch about Adam and Eve on the Saturday Night Live show, one fan tweeted: “you don’t always have to get naked!”

Unfortunately, Lena didn’t really think about her response to the fan before she tweeted: “Please tell that to my uncle, mister. He’s been making me!”

Needless to say, the American actress received several negative comments to the tweet which she then subsequently removed. She offered an apology and wrote:  “I just made and deleted a not so great molestation joke. Sorry guys. I am really sleepy.”

The actress went on to say that her audience to her HBO show was very different to the Saturday Night Live’s audience.

She added: “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.”
