Lena Dunham Boldly Names The Biggest Misogynist In Hollywood
She had the option to avoid answering in a “Plead the Fifth” segment on Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” clubhouse on Wednesday, but she offered a name.
“This isn’t a person who has a ton of power, but the small amount he has I feel he has used for ill ― and that is Daniel Tosh,” she said.
The “Camping” creator elaborated that Tosh, a comedian and host of Comedy Central’s “Tosh.0,” earned the distinction from her because an “unkind” insult about her breasts went beyond a personal diss.
“He said it in a context in which I felt he was shutting down a lot of women for having bodies he didn’t consider to be normative,” said Dunham, a champion of body-positivity.
While she did not specify what the comment was, Tosh said in a 2012 bit on pepper spray: “The only thing that will burn your eyes worse is watching that chick get naked on ‘Girls.’”
The barb was accompanied by a topless image of Dunham with her breasts blacked out.

HuffPost reached out for comment from one of Tosh’s reps, who did not immediately respond.
