The Twihards must be stopped. They’ve gone completely off the f-cking reservation. Here’s the story: Emma Roberts was on the Tonight Show the same night as Robert Pattinson (I think it was Tuesday night). Emma was promoting God knows what, I wasn’t paying attention, but she is clearly the “the second guest” you know? Sidenote: Her eye makeup is so bad, it’s distracting. Like, it’s Taylor Momsen-esque. Here’s the video of what happened when she came out as the second guest, and Pattinson stayed on the couch during her interview. Leno asks Emma if she’s Team Edward, and she admits that she’s actually Team Jacob.
I love Pattinson’s response. It was very old school, what he did, very quick and almost David Niven-esque (sidenote: Pattinson would be smart to model more of his actions and personality after Niven, a legendary charmer and wit). It’s obvious that Pattinson wasn’t offended, and he was having fun with her, and no one walked away feeling like sh-t. After all, it was just a difference of opinion about sparkly vampires versus cheesy werewolves, right? Not so much. After the show aired, an angry mob of Team Edward Twihards attacked Emma on her Twitter feed, and she had to shut down her Twitter account. Here’s more:
Robert Pattinson didn’t seem to mind when Emma Roberts revealed on “The Tonight Show” that she is on Team Jacob — but Team Edward definitely did.
Since telling Jay Leno she preferred the hunky werewolf to the brooding vampire on Tuesday’s “Tonight Show,” Roberts has been bombarded by nasty tweets from Pattinson’s fans.
They were so vicious, in fact, that the 19-year-old actress was forced delete her Twitter account, E! Online reports.
“Team Jacob? Ewwwwwwwww!!!!! >.<," wrote one user, whose comment was mild compared to several others. Before closing her account Wednesday night, Roberts tweeted, "Rob Pattinson is so nice! I was slightly disappointed his skin wasn't glittering & the song 'Wild Thing' didn't start when he shook my hand." Although some Twi-hards slammed Roberts for her "Tonight Show" proclamation, others are embarrassed by their fellow fans' actions. "Dear Emma Roberts, Sorry abt our fandom," tweeted one "Twilight" lover. "Please know not all of us act that way. I didn't agree w/ your Jay antics, but won't cuss you out." Another Twi-hard reminded everyone that if Pattinson wasn't offended, they shouldn't be. "Emma Roberts deleted her twitter? I can safely say i'm very embarrassed to even be part of Twilight at this point," the fan tweeted. "Rob made a joke about it!" When Roberts admitted she was on Team Jacob on "The Tonight show," Pattinson quipped, "Well, you just revealed yourself to have no taste."

Now, I have to admit – Emma grates on my nerves more than her Aunt Julia. Julia and Emma both have the big-mouthed bitchy genes, but Julia backs her sh-t up with being a movie star for a quarter of a century. That being said, I do feel for Emma because of what happened after this incident on the Tonight Show. She’s a pill, but she’s young, and she didn’t deserve to be made Enemy Number One of the Twihard Nation. For God’s sake, this has gotten beyond embarrassing.
