People Don't Like Matt LeBlanc's Inappropriate Comment About Daenerys

Matt LeBlanc, most famous for his character Joey from the American sitcom Friend, seems to have been channeling him at the Emmys' Red Carpet. Everyone knows that Joey, apart from not sharing his food ever, is kind of sexist, is a womanizer and is definitely not the sharpest tool in the box.
LeBlanc, when asked if he watched Game of Thrones at the Red Carpet, said "Yeah, I saw the first season, and I kind of fell out of touch with it. I guess that’s when she (Emilia Clarke) started getting naked, so I need to catch up".

LeBlanc's comment, directed towards Emilia Clarke who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen, was not taken too kindly by the internet who wasted no time in making it abundantly clear that not only was his comment inappropriate at best, he saying that also made him look like a complete creep.
Of course one cannot deny that Game of Thrones has a lot of nudity in it. One can't also deny that it is one of the reasons for its popularity. But LeBlanc's comment about Daenerys Targaryen is not amusing when you consider that she is one of the strongest female characters in the show and reducing her to a few nude scenes is just not right.

Matt LeBlanc telling Emilia Clark he should start watching second season of GOT cause she starts getting naked is too much. Creep.

Matt Leblanc sounded like a douchebag talking about missing Emilia Clarke nude scenes. Emilia handled it like a PRI on #ERedcarpet

Matt LeBlanc telling Emilia Clarke he should continue watching GoT because "she gets naked" gets 10/10 creep factor from us. #Emmys
