Stephen Fry has come under fire after a joke he made at the BAFTAs.

It was a throwaway comment but people have taken it seriously!

The comment is one he made at the BAFTAs regarding designer Jenny Beavan.

He said: "Only one of the great cinematic costume designers would come to the awards ceremony dressed like a bag lady."

Stephen initially responded to the criticism before deleting Twitter entirely. He said that she's a 'dear friend' and it was a 'joke'.
