Renowned British actor, humorist, TV personality, and gay man's gay man, who once portrayed legendary Irish wit Oscar Wilde, and who almost single handedly made Twitter popular with his humorous meanderings on many blogs was today recovering in Los Angeles following the traumatic experience of being criticised publicly on social networking site 'Twitter.'
It appears that one tweeter really got to Fry by describing his blogs as "boring", which led the raconteur into a fit of manic depressive pique - to a degree where Fry announced he was "out of here."
Fry has almost a million on-line followers, but this remains the only recorded incidence of someone not being arse-lickingly enraptured by his twaddle.
Voted 5***** all the way by 999,999 of his sycophantic devotees, Fry was reportedly devastated by the single "boring" quip, and threatened to quit. He even contacted an administrator from the website in protest, but was placated by a cheese toastie, a Mars Bar and a bottle of Cristal by cabin crew on his LA flight. After being told not to "do anything hasty, which you may regret later."
Fry was last seen sunning his ass by a pool in the Hollywood Hills, mopping his brow with a silk handkerchief in a distinctly gay way, and bemoaning the fact that he was casting pearls before swine.
Rumour has it that Fry is considering signing up for satirical website theSpoof.com as a writer, providing the money is right. An unnamed Spoof contributor told us:
"Jeeze, if he thinks one in a million bad reviews is cause for an emotional meltdown, he'd better stay away from the Spoof."
More as we get it.
