When news broke that Kristen Stewart had cheated on her boyfriend and Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson, the fandom went wild.
Between wondering (hoping, praying) if the pictures of Kristen with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders were photoshopped and losing faith in love all together, distraught Twihards took to Twitter in droves. And some of the fans even turned on each other.
When Kristen Stewart News tweeted, “We can't pretend this isn't happening. We are both shocked & saddened about this news,” several of the handle’s 73,000 followers turned on them, writing, “ WTTTTTTTTTF, SERIOUSLY, YOU TOO?? I lost my respect for you ;O,” and “you do not deserve to have followers.” Even after Kristen issued a public statement asking Rob for forgiveness, many still refused to believe the story was true.
While things got ugly for some, others refused to give up on the couple. “Robsten is unbroken” trended last night, with diehard ’shippers of the IRL couple remaining certain they can work things out.
Here’s a roundup of some distressed tweets from heartbroken Robsten lovers the world over.
