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.
However, many fans came to Martin’s defense saying backlash over his tweet was uncalled for including a Twitter user who screengrabbed the post.
During her life, Fisher was outspoken about rampant sexism and ageism in Hollywood. In 2015, the actress addressed critics who objectified her appearance.
