Steve Martin deleted a tweet intended to honor his longtime friend Carrie Fisher, who died Tuesday at 60, amidst a barrage of attacks online from crazed Social Justice Warriors.
On Tuesday, shortly after the actress died in a hospital after suffering a heart attack on a transatlantic flight Friday, Martin tweeted, “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.”
SJWs went on attack.
New York Magazine even published an entire post critical of Martin’s tweet, originally headlined “Steve Martin, This Is a Bad Tribute to Carrie Fisher.”
Martin took down the tweet a few hours after posting it.
