Watch out Russell Brand, ‘Twilight’ fans are out for blood

Sept. 09, 2008 | 8:42 p.m.

Oh, Russell Brand. How did you not recognize your fellow Englishman?

When Brand cut off “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, who was there to introduce the performance of Paramore during Sunday’s VMAs, we at Hero Complex cringed. This would mean trouble for the British comedian.

Because there’s nothing like a scorned “Twilight” fan. (Just ask Stephenie Meyer).

Take a look at some of the feedback already sent to MTV.com:

“He insulted all ‘Twilight’ fans,” a Twilighter named Sukiyaki posted on MTV.com. “MTV, I hope you have enough space to house all the hate mails about Russell Brand.”

“Be prepared for one helluva letter, Russell,” declared Natasha, posting the mailing address for Brand’s management and organizing a write-in campaign by the millions of readers who’ve made Stephenie Meyer’s novels bestsellers.

“That’s basically a FRICKIN SIN in the fandom,” fumed babyvampire29, claiming that she was sharpening her spork in preparation to retaliate. “I mean, CUTTING OFF ROB?! No, MTV. Just no. That wasn’t smart. Not at all.”

Brand, who is best known for his role as a sex-crazed pop star in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” best lay low for awhile.

    I was really upset when Russell cut Rob off (I had already put up with all the MTV bull I could handle for this moment.. and it was totally stolen from both of us!!). If I remember correctly, Brand didn't even say his name right.
    Buut I think Twilight fans are going to get a reputation if the movie's 2 months away and we're already starting "hate campaigns" XD I've listened to Japanese rock music (notorious here for it's… passionate… fandom) for years and I can tell you, when this sort of thing starts all fans of the genre or, in this case, story, get a bad name. I mean, yeah, he should have showed Robert some DAMN RESPECT and we can be mad, but just remember that these things can go too far. I know Twilight fans are awesome people but I can tell you from experience that these things can get out of hand.
    A little friendly advice, not meant to offend~

    Oh please get a life and eat some garlic bread!
    Russell Brand is one of the funniest people on this planet and it was his job to entertain.
    The Twilight presenters were dull and he did us all a favour by stopping them from talking!
    Oh and how much effort does it take to type oh my god!

  6. Meghan says:

    I HATE that dude!!! >: ( How DARE HE!!!!! >: ( Poor Rob. : ( I hope ur Happy MTV! Stupid Russel!

  7. m0m0f3 says:

    I cant stand Russell anyway, he looks, acts, and is just plain disgusting anyway…but to cut off Robert Pattinson…well, that just furthers my loathing for him
    (cant wait for Twilight 11-21-08!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Honestly Twilighters! Aren't there more important things we could get upset over? Is this a life altering occurance? No. So Robert got cut off, big deal. Most of the world doesn't know who the heck he is anyways. We need to stop over reacting so badly, or we're going to have a negative reputation, since all we seem to do is complain and tantrum.

    Twilight Fans are the new Claymates. Sad, lonely people and the worst kind of fantards on the planet. You're deluded if you think Russell Brand (who's mint btw) cares a whooping funt what the lot of you have to say about him. You're also deluded in thinking that your precious Twilight books/movie have any sort of cultural or literary gravitas. It's nothing but popcorn fiction feeding into the sad, pathetic 'Bad Boy' fantasy shared by so many weak individuals.

    Look people chill out it's not the end of the world. So what if he cut off Rob. I love Twilight and everything and Rob is the best but I don't see why we need to freak out because he was stopped short. Russel Brand was a sweet host he was halarious. People need to stop overreacting.

  11. S. says:

    Are you serious? I'm a Twilight fan.. and sure, I guess I'm a Robert fan. However, I highly disagree with everyone bashing on Russell because he cut off what some say is "the most important person playing a role in the Twilight movie." SO WHAT! He's being a host and trying to living up the VMAs which badly needed it because it was going downhill way before all that started. Get a grip, stop complaining and move on. There are plenty of interviews and spotlights for all of you to drool over Robert. What are you going to change now if it's done and over with? Why bother typing up the longest complaint for people not to care? Seriously.. let it go. I'm so sick and tired of people saying the most dumbest things and giving ALL of the fans a bad name.

    I'm a complete and total "Twilighter", but seriously you guys! So Russell Brand cut off Robert Pattinson while he was talking. Big deal! I'm sure it wasn't on purpose, and even if it was, does it really matter? Rob is a human being, not a god, and while he deserves the same respect as any other human on the planet, it's not a big deal that someone was a little rude. 'Cause yeah, cutting someone else off while they're speaking IS rude, but is it really worth making Twilighters look like blithering idiots with no life besides the books/movie?
    Rob is human, Russell is human, and no matter what your opinion is about the "issue", it's really NOT a real issue. If you really feel the need to freak out about something, I'd recommend that you go worry about something real instead.
    *I don't mean to offend. I simply want to point out how pointless this whole thing is*

    I am not a Twilight fan, I actually don't know much about it, but that was really rude of Brand to interupt that poor kid. What a jerk, Brand had the whole show to make dumb comments, let the presenters say their couple of lines!

    Get over it and stop acting so butthurt. This just goes to show that most Twilight fans have the maturity of 12 year olds. In fact, most Twilight fans are probably 12 years old, but that still doesn't justify their immaturity towards the situation. "OH EM GEE RUSSELL BRAND CUT OFF THE HAWTIE OH NOEZ I H8 HIM WAR PLZ!!!1" Honestly. And all those that think he was being harsh to The Jonas Brothers; if the Jonas Brothers were at an awards show in Britain they would have been ripped into a hell of a lot more. Russell Brand was polite to them compared to what a lot of other British comedians/hosts are like. In fact, I hardly felt that anything Brand said was particularly insulting towards them. It's called satire, and it's a very significant part of British humour. Cut Brand some slack, he had to mould his british humour to suit American humour. Which is extremely hard to do considering that American humour majorly consists of toilet jokes and racial remarks. You also don't realise that Russell Brand is totally out of his mind.
    I wouldn't have been so kind to the Jonas Brothers if I were hosting the VMA's.
    Twilight fans lack a decent sense of humour. I bet they loved Superbad.
