One member of the press will definitely not be interviewing Lena Dunham or the Girls producers again anytime soon. The Girls creator was faced with some impertinent questions about her frequent appearances in the nude during the show.

During a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday (9th January), a reporter questioned Dunham her decision to appear nude on the show. The reporter questioned, according to The Huffington Post, the purpose of nudity in the show. He said "I don't get the purpose of all the nudity on the show, by [Dunham] in particular. I feel like I'm walking into a trap where you go, 'Nobody complains about all the nudity on Game of Thrones, but I get why they do it. They do it to be salacious and titillate people. And your character is often nude at random times for no reason."

Dunham brushed the question aside, calming making a joke out of the reporter's lack of sensitivity or understanding, saying: "I totally get it. If you're not into me, that's your problem and you're going to have to work that out with professionals."

Unfortunately for the reporter in question, who had led himself into a trap, producer Judd Apatow chastised the journalist, saying whilst on the panel: "That was a very clumsily stated question that's offensive on its face, and you should read it and discuss it with other people how you did that. It's very offensive."

Jennifer Konner, another producer, was also on the panel and remained silent. She later admitted to being furious at the reporter's comments. She added "I literally was spacing out because I'm in such a rage spiral about that guy. I was just looking at him and going into this rage over this idea that you would talk to a woman like that and accuse a woman of showing her body too much. The idea of it just makes me sort of sick."

Girls, which stars Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky, has been renewed for a fourth season.
