We’ve all met them- sometimes in “real” life, sometimes just on the web- the Twilight haters. They come in varying degrees of hate- some of them just roll their eyes at any mention of Twilight, some of them will argue about plot and ”real” vampire characteristics and some of them go to extremes such as hacking into Twilight based fansites.
The question is- how do you deal with the hate? Do you just ignore it? Do you argue with them? Do you simply avoid the topic of Twilight around these people?
Larry Carroll over at MTV wants to know your stories of Twilight hate-
Instead, I was hoping to appeal to the very-real fanbase we’ve come to know and love over the past year-and-a-half of covering “Twilight” so intensely here at MTV, as well as those who’ve posted comments voicing their distaste for the series (as they have every right to do).
Have you ever been verbally or physically abused because of your love for “Twilight”? Have you ever picked on someone else because their views of the vampire series weren’t in line with your own? Have you ever lashed out at someone just because they voiced their distaste for the Cullen clan?
Since we have so many Twilighters and non-fans who post on our messageboards every day, we wanted to ask for some first-hand stories from you guys. Is this supposed “Twilight violence” another case of the media taking a non-story and reporting it as fact? Or do your own experiences reveal some truth to all this?
