One of the most talked-about moments of the BAFTAs on Sunday night came when host Stephen Fry said the winner of the costume design award, Jenny Beaven, had come dressed as a "bag lady".
But on Twitter, some people were upset at Fry's comments.
The BAFTAs took place nearly two hours before it was broadcast on BBC One. When the moment was aired, Fry had this to say about the outrage:
An audience member at the BAFTAs also told BuzzFeed News that the joke was scripted, as they were able to see the autocue Fry was using.
Fry also posted this picture at the BAFTAs after-party.
Update 4:45pm 15 February: This morning Fry deactivated his Twitter. He has since written a blog saying that he won't return to Twitter any time soon. Below is an excerpt of his blog entry:
Oh goodness, what fun twitter was in the early days, a secret bathing-pool in a magical glade in an enchanted forest. It was glorious 'to turn as swimmers into cleanness leaping.' We frolicked and water-bombed and sometimes, in the moonlight, skinny-dipped. We chattered and laughed and put the world to rights and shared thoughts sacred, silly and profane. But now the pool is stagnant. It is frothy with scum, clogged with weeds and littered with broken glass, sharp rocks and slimy rubbish. If you don't watch yourself, with every move you'll end up being gashed, broken, bruised or contused. Even if you negotiate the sharp rocks you'll soon feel that too many people have peed in the pool for you to want to swim there any more. The fun is over.
