On "Conan" last week, host Conan O'Brien took a shot at "Happening Now" co-anchor Jenna Lee.

In a segment called "Coffee Table Book That Didn't Sell," Conan revealed a made-up book called "Fox News Anchor or Porn Star," featuring Lee's image.

She responded in a Facebook post, writing, "As a wife, and a new mom, this trashy comment is not only inappropriate, it's clearly ridiculous ... In fact, Conan brings up a sad truth. Some women feel they need to dress and look like porn stars to make it on TV. I wonder where they get that idea? Could it be that the more provocative and sexy their social media photos are, the more followers they get? ... My theory is my body should never be more important than my body of work - and I'm not done building the latter."

On "Media Buzz," Lee explained to Howard Kurtz that she understands the necessity of knowing how to take a joke - especially when you're in the public eye - she believes that at some point, silence makes one complicit.

"This was the moment that I felt like I couldn't be silent about it," she explained.

Lee added that she doesn't believe that Conan owes her an apology, since he was just trying to be funny, but failed.

"But I think my point has been received really well," Lee said. "And a lot of young women - and even some of the men - around the office have commented that they really appreciated my response."
