Default Howard Stern apologizes to Lena Dunham

Big whoop so what else is new, Howard Stern is a shock jock first and radio DJ second, it's his job to point things out about celebrities that this shouldn't even be such a big deal anyway, I guess since not many have satellite Syrius radio that Howard needs all the attention he can get.

LINK

Following Girls' triumphant night at the Golden Globes, Stern said on his Sirius-XM show this morning that he likes the show and felt bad about past cracks he made about its star and creator—who has charmed some and turned others off with her pointedly awkward character and proclivity for nudity on the HBO series.

Last Monday, Stern called Dunham "a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill" and otherwise detailed his Girls grievances.

"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," Stern complained.

Well, today he was singing a different tune. In fact, it sounded almost like "Anything Could Happen."

"I felt bad," he said on the air, calling the next-day take on his comments a "hatchet job," "because I really do love the show Girls and enjoy it, and I admire the girl who writes it...So I said to [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 little fat chick."

"It took me a while to get there," Stern also said, "and all of the sudden I went, 'This show's really really funny. I like it.' I kind of just started liking the show. And I've done a whole 360 on the show and I really admire the girl who writes it, and I actually like when she comes on camera...I'm a superfan now. I really love it. I almost went to the premiere the other night."

Well, if he had gone to the premiere, he could have found out right then and there that the very good-natured Dunham (whom we think would make for an excellent Howard Stern Show interview) was actually kinda psyched by his comments.

"I did find out that Howard Stern really hates [the show]," Dunham said on the Late Show With David Letterman last week. "I'm 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 to get anything going these days.' And it put me in the best mood!

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

She's a disgusting human being and nobody owes her an apology for anything after that mind-numbing ad she did for the election setting women back atleast a century.

What did she do an add for Todd Akin or something?

I followed the election pretty closely and the only thing I remember being really offended by, female wise, is two or three politicians saying that there was a such a thing as "legitimate rape" and babies conceived by rape being gifts from god. I'd like a link to the thing setting women back that came from a comedian with no power to pass laws.

I think her show is overrated as all hell, but overall I have no real problem with her.

She doesn't look fat to me, maybe I have a different view of what fat is? Is she thin? No but why should she be?

If she's not bothered with what Stern said I don't see why I should. I do think that it's kinda silly how it's always about rather women are visually appealing to men and not about their talents or lack their off. Whocares if you don't find a women to be attractive. Does a man not finding a woman attractive. mean that the woman should just kill herself or lock herself away?

He's a comedian who says and does stupid things on his show to make people react one way or the other. It's not that serious.

I have a friend who met her, says she's extremely self centered, egotistical and deserves the hate.

Well her show is all about hipsters and she definitely seems to identify with them, so it's not surprising. Can't call her a hipster though since she has a job.

Because more often than not I have found that woman don't respond to compliments about their mind.

I think the show is over-rated too. It's ok, but a lot of ppl act like it's the best thing since slice bread. I guess since the shows main characters are women it's filling in the void left by Sex and The City.

Howard's apology sounds like someone had a gun to his head as it read it from a piece of paper.

She must be connected.
