Members of the public have branded Matt LeBlanc as 'creepy' after he joked with Emilia Clarke at the Emmys last night.
When asked by E! if he watches Game of Thrones, the Friends star replied: "Yeah, I saw the first season, and I kind of fell out of touch with it.
"I guess that's when she [Emilia] started getting naked, so I need to catch up."
Maybe the timing wasn't right, maybe it was a bit inappropriate, but it was clearly a joke, right? Okay, it wasn't a good one. I'll admit that. And if he was trying to pull her (which I doubt he was) it's not exactly Joey Tribbiani level of flirting.
But Twitter was having none of it.

Matt LeBlanc talking about watching Emilia Clarke naked makes me all sorts of uncomfortable. #Emmys

.@Matt_LeBlanc said he'll start watching Game Of Thrones because he wanted to see Emilia Clarke naked. That was Joey speaking, not him.

Although, Elvia commented:
Everyone is losing their minds bc of Matt LeBlanc even when months ago Emilia said "you watched the first season,you've seen the good bits''

Elvia is referring to the time that Emilia Clarke and Matt LeBlanc appeared on The Graham Norton Show together.
What do you think? Completely inappropriate or a really bad joke?
