Howard Stern Didn’t Mean To Say ‘Girls’ Feels ‘Like A Rape’ Because Of Lena Dunham’s Nudity, You Guys

By / 01.15.13

Let’s say you’re the world’s biggest fan of the Coppertone girl. You love the Coppertone girl. You can’t get enough of the Coppertone girl. You always make sure to go down the cosmetics aisle at the grocery store because you need to see the Coppertone girl on a weekly basis. Not in a creepy way, of course; you just happen to like the Coppertone girl the way other people do Leonardo DiCaprio or Ryan Gosling. Then, one day while you’re flipping through channels on the teevee, you see a commercial declaring that the REAL COPPERTONE GIRL is going to be visiting your town, Humbleville Pie Smile, USA, for one day only. And that day is today! You rush down to the hardware store where she’s appearing, for some reason, and calmly approach your idol. What do you say? Two options:

1. “I’m a huge fan. I’m so happy to have met you and really respect your work.”

2. “You’re a little fat girl…and you keep taking your clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape.”

If you’re Howard Stern, and the Coppertone girl is Lena Dunham, you say the latter. But let’s backtrack a little.

Last week, Howard Stern said some delightful things about Girls and Lena Dunham on his Sirius show.

On his SiriusXm radio show Monday, Howard Stern cracked, “I learned that this little fat chick writes the show (Girls) and directs the show, and that makes sense to me because she’s such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on.” He also complained that Lena Dunham is “a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape.” (Via)

Ugh. The worst. On Monday, though, after Lena’s triumphant night at the Golden Globes, he changed his tune.

“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.” (Via)

In a span of a week, Stern went from “feels like a rape” to “superfan.” For what it’s worth, Lena Dunham wisely laughed off the comments on Letterman, saying, “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!”

So, what lesson did we learn here? Um…..BABA BOOEY BABA BOOEY BABA BOOEY. Also, Howard Stern had sex with the Coppertone girl.
