"Carrie Fisher Was The Most Beautiful Creature"

Steve Martin
Some people are becoming more sensitive these days that they take everything and every word as offensive. They again struck and forced comedian Steve Martin to delete a tweet intended to honor his longtime friend Carrie Fisher.

Fisher, the actress best known as "Star Wars' Princess Leia Organa, died after suffering a heart attack last 23 December. She was 60.

Shortly after the actress died, 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."

It was a fine and perfect tweet, but some snowflakes who want to hug teddy bears after Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election pressured Martin into deleting the tweet because they deemed it offensive for 'objectifying women.' Can anybody imagine that?

According to their posts and tweets, Martin’s tweet is sexist and crediting her for being "witty and bright" as somewhat of an afterthought to her appearance.

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."

What is wrong with saying she was beautiful, especially since sexism is in the mind of the morons who post the comments, because Martin didn't even mention WOMAN but CREATURE. And, regardless what morons think, "beautiful" is the standard word for woman like handsome is the standard word for men.

It is hard to see something wrong with an actress praising George Michael by saying, "When I first met George he was the most handsome man I had ever met" or, come to think of it, even "the most beautiful man I ever met," which he apparently was to his fans.

And the rest of Martin's post is also legitimate. "She turned out to be bright and witty as well" one can say about man or woman: "Marlon Brando had the most beautiful face I had ever seen, and he turned out to be bright and witty as well," because one does not expect artists, least of all actors, to necessarily be bright and witty (he was crude and vulgar, as was Mozart).

As support to Martin's original tweet, this blog will say it again, "Carrie Fisher was the most beautiful creature."
