Progs Attack Steve Martin Over Carrie Fisher Tweet

Ah, yes, the tolerant Progs at work again. Miserable control freaks. The same who are threatening any entertainers who dare to consider to perform at Trump's inauguration.


Steve Martin deletes Twitter tribute to Carrie Fisher after backlash


Quote:

Steve Martin received backlash for a tribute he paid to Carrie Fisher on Twitter.

On Tuesday, the comic wrote in a since-deleted tweet, "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."

Media outlets and fans immediately turned on the comedian saying Martin’s tweet had a sexist undertone.
@SarahAnnRhoades @TheCut I think she aspired to something higher than just being https://t.co/R5qxdhADzj do you want to be remembered?

Seriously @SteveMartinToGo quit being such a jerk for thinking Carrie Fisher was beautiful and saying so on the occasion of her death...
— SarahLee (@sarailola) December 28, 2016

Steve Martin's tweet about Carrie Fisher is extremely bad https://t.co/if7QV6Ow3b
— The Cut (@TheCut) December 27, 2016
However, many fans came to Martin's defense saying backlash over his tweet was uncalled for including a Twitter user who screengrabbed the post.

I'm going to be pissed off all day because people bullied Steve Martin into deleting a tweet about his friend, Carrie Fisher.

If you were upset by Steve Martin’s tweet about Carrie Fisher, congratulations! You are officially addicted to outrage.

Now, seek help.

Was Steve Martin's tweet about Carrie Fisher offensive? Absolutely not. Not in the slightest.

AND YOU couldn't wait to fan the flames.....could you?? I see nothing wrong with Martin's post. Good friends often say things that others may not completely understand.

I think this isn't a case of misunderstanding, it is a case of a very few overly PC idiots going on about innocent things. Creatures like that, though few in numbers, attract a great following among those with an ax to grind.

I take that to mean that Steve Martin will preform and only hope he does not do the arrow through the head gag. Steve Martin should do the King Tut dance.
