After some social pressure and some would call it bullying, Steve Martin has taken down his tribute tweet to Carrie Fisher. Some thought it was sexist and some had no issues with the tweet. The nay sayers must have won…because he took it down. He wrote: “When I was a young man, Carrie Fisher was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen. She turned out to be witty and bright as well”.
Twitter was quit to react!
Seriously @SteveMartinToGo quit being such a jerk for thinking Carrie Fisher was beautiful and saying so on the occasion of her death…”
Others defended the comedian, stating it was clear he was just paying tribute to an old friend.
“Am I missing something?” one wrote. “What is the squawk about? Sounded lovely to me.”
Another follower added: “If you were upset by Steve Martin’s tweet about Carrie Fisher, congratulations! You are officially addicted to outrage. Now, seek help.
What do you think? I don’t think Steve Martin’s intent was to be sexist. I think he just wanted to say good buy to an old friend. Was there anything wrong with his tweet?
