Acting legend Stephen Fry is back on Twitter.
Stephen Fry is back on Twitter after he left the social media networking site back in February over an uproar over a “bag lady” comment made about costume designer Jenny Beavan, who was collecting a Bafta, for which Fry was the host.
The backlash against Fry started almost immediately and he released a statement saying,
“So just a word to the tragic figures who think calling Jenny Bevan a bag lady was an insult. She’s a dear friend and she got it. Derrr.”
Another tweet said,
“Will all you sanctimonious f***ers f*** the f*** off Jenny Beavan is a friend and joshing is legitimate. Christ I want to leave the planet.”
However this after it appears as though the actor is back on Twitter.
In a blog on his site, told his fans,
“After five months of life away from social media I have reactivated my Twitter account.
“From time to time you will now be able to read news of what I am up to, along with occasional redirects to causes important to me.
“I started work on a comedy series for CBS television in the US this week and I will certainly keep the @stephenfry feed up to date with information and pictures about this exciting new project as well as, perhaps, subjecting the world to a mini-blog or two on my website.
“While I won’t be burdening you all with personal observations or visiting the Direct Messages page, Twitter can still reward with its marvellous uses as a bulletin board and information exchange.
“Had anyone suggested that such a service might exist ten or fifteen years ago I would never have believed them.”
