The Twitterverse is mourning the loss of Stephen Fry after he stopped tweeting in protest at the media. After saying “bye bye” to his two million followers, his account now says “no longer in service”.
He said the Observer had taken quotes he made to Attitude out of context: “So some f***ing paper misquotes a humorous interview I gave, which itself misquoted me and now I’m the Antichrist. I give up.”
Fry was criticised by feminists after the Observer quoted him as saying: “I feel sorry for straight men. The only reason women will have sex with them is that sex is the price they are willing to pay for a relationship with a man.”
