Steve Martin Deletes Carrie Fisher Tweet After Accused of Being Sexist


The 'Pink Panther' actor faces backlash due to a tweet where he called the late 'Star Wars' actress 'the most beautiful creature I had ever seen.'
Steve Martin received mixed responses for his tribute to Carrie Fisher on Twitter. In the wake of Fisher's death, the 71-year-old star 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."

Martin was accused of sexism in a New York Magazine article. "Something for men on social media to consider before honoring her by talking about all the boners she gave you," he was criticized. However, some came to his defense. One wrote, "If this from Steve Martin triggers you, you are addicted to outrage and need help. Do you really think Carrie Fisher would be offended?"

Carrie Fisher died December 27 in hospital at the age of 60. She never regained consciousness after having cardiac arrest during a flight from London to Los Angeles. One day after her passing, her mother Debbie Reynolds died of stroke. She was 84.
