How do we know? Because people are actually attacking Steve Martin of all people over a supposedly sexist tweet following the passing of Carrie Fisher:
So he found her beautiful on the outside… witty and bright on the inside… uh, what exactly is the problem? Perhaps his phrasing was a bit awkward (RE: creature) and the word she after Fisher was a lazy typo on his part, but that doesn’t change that he was respectfully complimenting her.
Oh, please. He wasn’t “shamed” into deleting a damned thing. He probably just didn’t want to read any more bullshit from hack writers with nothing better to do than express feigned outrage via clickbait articles capitalizing on Carrie Fisher’s death to drive up ad revenues.
Y’know, because it’s trending right now. Disgusting.
