Fry later defended the joke on his dearly departed Twitter account by saying that he and Beaven were friends and on good terms. He wrote, “Will all you sanctimonious fuckers fuck the fuck off Jenny Beavan is a friend and joshing is legitimate. Christ I want to leave the planet." He even tweeted a picture of the two of them at the after party:
