'Christ, I want to leave the planet': BAFTA host Stephen Fry tells his fans to f*** off in Twitter rant after calling Best Costume Designer winner Jenny Beavan a 'bag lady'

BAFTA 2016 host Stephen Fry told fans to 'f*** off' last night after jokingly referring to the Best Costume Designer winner as a 'bag lady.'
The 58-year-old comedian and actor faced a barrage of criticism online after he ribbed friend Jenny Beavan over her attire when she collected her award.
He said: 'Only one of the great cinematic costume designers would come to the awards ceremony dressed like a bag lady.'
Jenny, highly acclaimed for her work, collected her gong wearing a black leather jacket, baggy white T-shirt and dark trousers to the event, held at the Royal Opera House in London.
The host's joke wasn't well-received and Twitter went wild following his jibe and demanded he apologise.



But Stephen, who has presented the ceremony for 11 years, lost his temper and had a message for his critics.
He tweeted: 'So just a word to the tragic figures who think calling Jenny Bevan a bag lady was an insult. She's a dear friend and she got it. Derrr.'
'Will all you sanctimonious f***ers f*** the f*** off Jenny Beavan is a friend and joshing is legitimate. Christ I want to leave the planet.'
At the Bafta after party he posted a picture of himself with his friend with the caption: 'Jenny Baglady Beavan and Stephen Outrageous Misogynist Swine Fry'.


Mr Fry joked that her Best Costume Designer award was ironic because she was so casually dressed.
But the joke was missed by many who bombarded him with angry messages.
One said: 'Can't bear Stephen Fry's attitude. Mocking appearance just stifles diversity and people being themselves.'
Another said: '@stephenfry you do realise you're presenting a public show...to the public...and you're talking to the camera and hence to the public.'
While a third wrote: '#bafta2016 @stephenfry you must apologise for #baglady comment.'



Following his post, many of Stephen's fans tweeted him to say that they saw the funny side of his words.



One user tweeted: 'mr Fry. We are lucky we have you to remind us to laugh. Now you don't need me to tell you to ignore the twits. Now do you. X'
While another said: '@stephenfry laugh and let go. You're awesome!
A third wrote: '@stephenfry brilliant comment in the first place, brilliant response!'
And another user wrote: 'those that matter don't mind, those who mind don't matter! It's cliché darling but oh so true. Much love.'
