Lena Dunham Apologizes for Molestation Joke: "Even Naked Girls Get Embarrassed"



Lena Dunham may be outspoken, but she knows when she's gone too far!

Fresh off her "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig, the "Girls" star got defensive after she appeared nude in a sketch about Adam and Eve.

 A Twitter user told the actress, "You don't always have to get naked!" to which the 27-year-old replied, "Please tell that to my uncle, mister. He's been making me!"

Following some negative reactions to the joke, the Golden Globe winner took down the tweet and sent out a series of apologies. 

"I just made and deleted a not so great molestation joke. Sorry guys. I am really sleepy. 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," Lena tweeted. "But I should know better, and do. Even naked girls get embarrassed. Sleep well and thanks for an amazing weekend."

Well, we hope she learned her lesson -- don't post anything when you're tired!
