Lena Dunham deletes ill-judged tweet following her successful appearance on Saturday Night Live

Lena Dunham partied with Taylor Swift on Saturday night to celebrate her successful turn hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time, but the Girls star was soon in trouble for tweeting an ill-judged molestation joke.

"Please tell that to my uncle, mister. He's been making me!" she tweeted to a fan who asked why Lena felt the need to always be naked.

The tweet led to negative reactions and the controversial actress deleted the tweet, following it up with, "I just made and deleted a not so great molestation joke. Sorry guys. I am really sleepy."
She continued: "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," before adding: "But I should know better, and do. Even naked girls get embarrassed. Sleep well and thanks for an amazing weekend."  
Lena hit our screens in 2012 with the hit HBO show Girls, which follows four girls in their early twenties dealing with life and love.

Her social media accounts were busy in the days leading up to the show, as Lena posted pictures of her with numerous cast members.

Also partying on Saturday with Lena and Taylor were Mean Girls stars Daniel Franseze and Rajiv Surendra, with Daniel posting several Instagram pictures featuring Lena and Taylor.

"Live from New York it's the @nbcsnl after party with @girlshbo star @lenadunham and #meangirls homie #RajivSurendra and me @whatsupdanny!" tweeted Danny, the first of many throughout the night.
And he declared it the best party ever when he tweeted the pic of himself and Rajiv with popstar Taylor.
"Sure this is mah boy Rajiv with @taylorswift and me @whatsupdanny probably the best party ever. You?"
On Sunday Lena headed off to the annual film and music festival South by South West in Texas where she is today’s keynote speaker.
