Stephen Fry Reportedly Quits Twitter: Will He Return?

It looks like English actor, comedian and television presenter Stephen Fry has just quit the popular micro-blogging website Twitter recently, following the controversy surrounding comments he supposedly made during an interview with Attitude Magazine.

As recently reported by metro.co.uk, The Observer quoted Fry as saying: “For good reason. If women liked sex as much as men, there would be straight cruising areas in the way there are gay cruising areas.” Fry then took to his Twitter page, to react to the growing speculation.

“So some f***ing paper misquotes a humorous interview I gave, which itself misquoted me and now I’m the Antichrist,” he wrote. Fry – who recently apologized via Twitter for posting behind-the-scenes pictures from the new “Harry Potter” movie – then wrote: “I give up. Bye bye.”

Ever since then, the actor’s subtitle entry simply reads “No longer in service.” This isn’t the first time Fry has quit Twitter however. He also quit the site last year after a follower claimed his tweets were boring, but later returned and claimed that it was just a “mood thing.”

Do you think Stephen has really quit for good, or will he return to tweet once again?

    I think Mr Fry needs to grow up & stop acting like a child, and this comes from a huge fan of his..

  2. Rachel says:

    If there is any form of natural justice for we poor souls on this insignificant planet, then Fry will now simply quietly tip-toe away and stop tweeting, moaning, wailing, and blogging, and stick to what he's good at: being tall.

      Uh - how do you even know about his "tweeting, moaning, wailing and blogging" if you don't follow?

      If there is any form of natural justice, people will realise that we poor souls were born with the ability to choose our level of engagement with public information and media.

      If you don't care, don't consume.

    I think he'll be back. I'm kind of disappointed in him for giving up so easily (I'm a huge fan). I would feel annoyed if I was misquoted but he's dealt with worse in his life. He could just be going though one of his stages so hopefully he'll be back on Twitter soon. x

  5. Terry says:

    I’m a fan of his, but if he was truly misquoted why has he not come out with a proper public disownment of the interview? Why not step up and say ‘That’s not how I feel and that’s not what I really said and you have misquoted me in the following ways…’ and actually call them on it. Instead of making a largely uninformative comment on twitter, stomping your little foot and disappearing?

    I think he’s funny and clever, but he can be a bit childish at times. Like now.

    He has severe bipolar disorder, and occasional negative reactions like this are to be expected. His real fans love him for who he is and recognise that his illness sometimes makes it hard for him to interact with the public. Come back when you're ready, Stephen. We still love you.

  7. Maslin says:

    Please remember that people with bipolar will obviously have ups and downs. Give him some slack.

  8. Tim says:

    For crying out loud, this is the curse of the printed word! No tone and no inflection so often lead to mistranslation of the actual message being put across. I sincerely doubt that Mr. Fry genuinely holds such attitudes towards women and sex.

  9. frances says:

    I hope he has stopped tweeting. It is such a useless and time wasting thing to do.
    Me too, I am a huge fan!
