With all of the discussion, controversy and varying opinions that HBO's "Girls" (10:30 p.m. ET on) has inspired since it premiered in April, there is one thing most people who watch the show can agree on: Hannah's weird hook-up buddy Adam is a really strange character.

Adam Sackler, played by actor Adam Driver, has emerged as one of this season's breakout TV villains, a character that's become so widely loathed that he's inspired a parody Twitter account called Adam Sackler's Chest and has been stalked by an overzealous "Girls" fan.

It's not difficult to see why the character engenders such passions. He rarely wears a shirt, treats Hannah like trash and has some twisted sexual fetishes. In the last episode, he put Hannah through a bizarre but hilarious S&M dirty-talk session, as he pleasured himself and got off on her telling him what a jerk he was. Fortunately, Hannah walked away from the incident with a story to tell, and $100 for her troubles.

But perhaps Adam's dislikability is a credit to Lena Dunham's writing, and Driver's acting. His character has touched a sensitive nerve: He's become a walking embodiment of the most wretched, one-sided relationships ever. And while "Girls" has taken some heat for its flat depictions of male characters -- the exact opposite criticism that was leveled against "Girls" producer Judd Apatow until he silenced critics with "Bridesmaids" -- a lot of people also find Adam to be kind of funny.

Below, check out a Twitter slideshow of "Girls" viewers expressing varying amounts of disgust, admiration and bewilderment towards Adam Sackler.

"Girls" airs at 10:30 p.m ET on HBO on Sundays.
