Either Lena Dunham has gotten over Jezebel's photoshop bounty controversy really quickly or the actress already had a snarky sense of humor regarding the feminist website long before they attempted to seize her pre-photoshopped Vogue magazine images.

As we previously reported, just weeks ago Jezebel made a big spectacle out of Dunham's photoshopped photo's featured in her February cover issue of Vogue to only find out that the images had barely been retouched. The site put up a $10,000 reward for copies of the images before they were photoshopped, which caused a major Internet frenzy.

However, the sites questionable gestures barely amused Dunham, and the "Tiny Furniture" actress simply responded to Jezebel's efforts over Twitter by posting: "Some s**t is just too ridiculous to engage. Let's use our energy wisely 2014."

Now that the dust has settled between Dunham and Jezebel, viewers will be interested to see the actress' "Girls" character, Hannah Horvath, give the website a witty shout out on the upcoming episode of the HBO hit series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, there's a scene in episode four of "Girls" in which Hannah actually takes up for Jezebel and the Gawker Media empire it falls under.

After being scolded by her boyfriend, Adam (Adam Driver), for getting her "news" from Gawker, which he describes as "a bunch of jealous people who make a living appealing to our basest desire to see each other kicked while we're down," Hannah responds defensively for her favorite site.

"It's a web portal that celebrates the written word. And its sister site, Jezebel, is a place where feminists can go to support one another, which we need in this modern world of slut-shaming..." Hannah responds.

While the scene was filmed months before Jezebel's desperate antics to publicize Dunham's Vogue pre-photoshopped pics, many speculate the scene was intended as a a wisecrack on Dunham's real life relationship with Gawker Media, who have brutally criticized the 27-year-old writer in the past.

Looks like Dunham got the last laugh after all. 

Be sure to check out "Girls" episode four on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 9 p.m. on HBO!
