'Twilight' Fans Force Emma Roberts Off Twitter

'Twilight' Fans Force Emma Roberts Off Twitter-photo

And here we thought that Twilight was only to be used for good.

Actress Emma Roberts was allegedly forced to delete her Twitter account after enraged Robert Pattinson fans sent her death threats because she announced on The Tonight Show that she is Team Jacob.

Robert, who was seated next to her, didn't seem to mind that Emma preferred Jacob over his Edward, and even made a joke about her having revealing herself to have "no taste." However, while Rob was able to laugh the whole thing off, some of his overzealous fans felt the need to take action–and by "take action" we mean cyberbully a celebrity for liking a fictional character.

Emma, who is the niece of actress Julia Roberts, was eventually forced to deleted her Twitter account over her off-the-cuff remark.

Luckily, not all Twihards are as, um, crazy as the fans who forced Emma off Twitter: many Twihards tweeted their support for the Unfabulous actress. Before she deleted her account, Emma, who admitted she was a Twilight fan, tweeted that Rob was "so nice" and that she was "slightly disappointed [that] his skin wasn't glittering" when she met him.

Do you think the world of Twilight has room for both Team Jacob and Team Edward?

Watch the video of Emma saying she is rooting for Team Jacob below.

    I love Twilight. ...I just can't stand ther crazy RPattz/Edward fans people call 'Twitards'... I swear, I'm so glad I didn't fall under Rob's 'curse'. This whole thesis is so unnecessary... Some Twilight fans need to grow up... PRONTO! P.S - TEAM JACOB ALL THE WAY! P.P.S - You should feel ashamed of yourselves! You obviously don't know who Emma is, and you don't know how sweet she can be or even how talented she is because you whackos don't have any interest outside of Edward/Rob/Robsten.

    people didn't bash emma because she said she was "team jacob", they did because she was a total BIOTCH to rob. thats why. Making death threats goes beyond bashing. As for being a biotch to Rob, all the poor girl said was that she was team Jacob. That is not a slam against him because he is NOT Edward. The mentally unstable Twilight fangirls making death threats towards Emma, need to have their TV not to mention the Twilight DVDS/books taken away from them and be placed in a mental hospital.

    okay i am obsessed with twilight... but i do not care when it comes to people who dont. it doesnt involve me whether someone is on team jacob, edward or neither - they arent even real. seriously sending death threats to someone over a fictional character? some fans are a little pathetic.

    I don't have any problem with Twilight fans, but Rob's fans are crazy and out of line. Let's be honest, everything starts from Rob's comment. I like Rob and I understand he means it was a joke, but to a person that he's just met 10 mins ago, his comment did sound rude. That kind of joke is for your close friend, not for s/o you just met. That's just the English sense of humor, get used to it.

    Who really freaking cares? It's a book, and people are entitled to their own opinions! I'm on Team Blade, if you can't guess what tha means Google is an option. I personally HATE the Twi-series, but good lord give the chick a rest... I swear people are way to gullible these days. I mean, did SMeyer put heroin inbetween the pages?

    omg people are sad. ugh get lives. Agreed! She said she was on Team Jacob and perfered him to Edward. THEY ARE FICTIONAL CHARACTERS!!!!! I hope she isn't too emtionally scared. I'm a Twi-hard too, but I have a life AND my sanity! I honestly don't understand why obnoxious little fan-girls feel the need to take action when nothing wrong is happening! I feel bad for Emma...

    i don't even like twilight, but yet i have no problem with people who like it. i wish the "twihards" could be the same. not everyone has to be team this or team that. they need lives. :/
