Steve Martin’s sweet and poignant Twitter tribute to Carrie Fisher had liberal feminists so hot and bothered he had to take it down.
What could be so offensive as to cause such a fluster?

In a warped and twisted liberal mind, how does one take insult with what Martin tweeted?
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.
Seriously @SteveMartinToGo quit being such a jerk for thinking Carrie Fisher was beautiful and saying so on the occasion of her death…

Fisher was a big anti-sexism, feminist herself and it seems to have spurred a following that has them protecting her all the way into the great beyond.
Twisted, politically correct social engineering has completely taken the tenderness out of human compassion.
