Stephen Fry Tweeted 'Bye Bye' After Slamming Magazine for Misquoting Him
British actor Stephen Fry is adamant he doesn't deserve the furious backlash over a controversial new interview - because he was "misquoted" when he allegedly suggested the only women who enjoy sex "wish to be paid for it". The gay funnyman has been heavily criticized over a series of remarks which were printed in Britain's Attitude magazine, in which he reportedly claimed heterosexual women don't like having sex.
He told the publication, "If women liked sex as much as men, there would be straight cruising areas in the way there are gay cruising areas... It doesn't happen. Why? Because the only women you can have sex with like that wish to be paid for it."
However, Fry is adamant he was "misquoted" by both the magazine and the newspaper columnists who slammed his comments - and he is fuming over his negative portrayal in the media. In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Oh f**k... So some f**king paper misquotes a humorous interview I gave, which itself misquoted me and now I'm the Antichrist. I give up."
He later sparked rumors he has quit the microblogging site for good by simply adding, "Bye bye".
