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.
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.
