BOSTON, July 25, 2012 - Did you feel it? Last night the internet shook. A massive computer virus? Political chaos? Global warming? A new iPhone? No. People Magazine broke a story that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson. You may be rolling your eyes. Doesn’t this stuff happen every day? Isn’t the supermarket filled with tabloids that have every celebrity couple cheating on each other, getting married and getting pregnant at the same time?
Well……..Yes. But this was People Magazine. People is known for being the number one reputable magazine in the world. Stars flock to the magazine to tell their true stories. O.k., so what if the story is actually true? Who cares? Good Lord, it seems that flocks of passionate “Twilight” fans do.
1,496 comments have been made on the People story on their website. Many are from Robsten fans screaming that the story is untrue. The comments may make you roll your eyes, but I feel bad for these kids. “Twilight” fans are a nice bunch and the real life fairytale that they follow is crumbling before their eyes. Sorry kids, real life isn’t the movies.
But these are just rumors right? Even if it comes from a reputable source like People? Ah yes, you may have felt a massive aftershock on the web shortly after the People Magazine story hit. Us Weekly ran a similar story as People, but added a photo of Kristen and the married director she allegedly had an affair with. “PHOTOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” screamed thousands on Twitter. 588 comments quickly amassed on the US Weekly story via their website. Hundreds of fans adamantly said that the photo was photoshopped. Others cried. Twitter was swarmed with girls screaming via tweets……Now it’s morning and we have all survived.
So if you see a teenage girl weeping on the street today or if your daughter is screaming OMG to her friends, now you know why. The internet shook, but we survived. Good lord what will happen when TMZ chimes in?……..
UPDATE: Kristen issued a public apology: People
