Once upon a time, shock jock Howard Stern said some not nice things on his radio show about Lena Dunham. Specifically that Dunham is “a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill” who was “raping his eyes.”
It took a good year, but Dunham finally hit back. According to Page Six, the “Girls” creator took the stage at Stern’s 60th birthday party Friday night and spoke her mind.
“He asked me if I was intimidated because my boyfriend could be getting a much hotter piece of ass,” Dunham said after reminding the crowd of the Jonah Hill/raping lines. “At the time, I didn’t have the wherewithal to ask if you were intimidated because [your wife] Beth could definitely be with someone who doesn’t look like a cartoon of a Jewish female horse.”

Obviously, though, it was all in good fun. Dunham was at the guy’s birthday party, after all. Plus she closed out with some kind words, including that Stern is a “champion for women in the arts.”
What with all of this friendly banter, we can’t help but imagine Stern, an admitted “Girls” fan, guest starring on the HBO series, possibly as Ray’s dad. Just a thought, casting people.
