Truth rating: 10

Lisa Lampanelli has been known to create a stir, and she did it again with a provocative tweet on Monday featuring “Girls” star Lena Dunham and one of the most controversial words in the English language.

The foul-mouthed comic posted a picture of the duo on Twitter, captioning it, “Me with my n**ga @LenaDunham of @HBOGirls - I love this beyotch!!”

Lampanelli’s use of the N-word ignited a predictable firestorm, with a number of outlets taking her to task for employing it.

Many observers contended that posting the word, even as a joke or without malice, was in poor taste and completely unacceptable.

Throughout Tuesday, the comedian retweeted fans’ messages supporting her and downplaying the controversy, saying it’s well within the bounds of comedy.
