Lena Dunham Gets Even with Howard Stern

Remember about a year ago when Howard Stern attacked Lena Dunham for some odd reason? If not, let us refresh your memory. On his radio show in January 2013, Stern referred to Dunham as "a little fat girl who kinda looks like Jonah Hill, and she keeps taking her clothes off, and it kind of feels like rape."

The two reconciled their differences a few weeks later when Dunham called into his radio show so Stern could apologize for his remarks, saying that he was actually paying her a larger compliment that included the unfortunate reference as an aside. We all make mistakes, we guess?

Over the weekend, Dunham got her revenge on the shock jock when she roasted him at his 60th birthday party in New York City. According to Page Six, Dunham called out how Stern once asked her if she was intimidated because her boyfriend "could be getting much hotter ass." The Girls creator and star deadpanned, "I didn't have the wherewithal to ask Howard if he was intimidated because Beth [Ostrosky Stern] could definitely be with someone who doesn't look like a cartoon of a Jewish female horse."

Well done, Dunham.
