When The Writer of 50 Shades of Grey Was Burned By Twitter

when the writer of shades of grey was burned by twitter

When Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James announced a Q&A on Twitter on Monday with the hashtag #AskELJames, she probably wasn’t expecting these questions:

Which do you hate more, women or the English language? #AskELJames

Needless to say, things escalated very quickly.

Do you ever feel guilty that you made so much money from romanticizing sexual abuse and selling it as "erotica romance"? #AskELJames

— Jherane_ (@Margarita Atwood)

#AskELJames Is it only ok for Christian to stalk, coerce, threaten & manipulate Ana because he`s hot, or is it also ok because he`s rich?

— 50shadesabuse (@50 Shades is abuse)

#AskELJames Can you confirm that you will be writing the story of Ramsay Bolton from his perspective, showing he is just misunderstood?

— GameOverRos (@Ros)

Did you see the abusive relationship of Bella and Edward and think "hmm needs more abuse" #AskELJames

— RachelCDailey (@R_chelCh_rlt_nD_iley)

#AskELJames after the success of "Grey," have you considered re-telling the story from the perspective of someone who can write

— avestal (@Andrew Vestal)

#AskELJames I need advice on making a BIG romantic gesture. Should I put a GPS tracker in her phone and make threats if she tries to leave?

There were plenty of jokes about Stephenie Meyer:

Are you going to answer any of these questions, or do you need Stephenie Meyer to do a Twitter chat first? #AskELJames

— bethorne (@Beth Thorne)

#AskELJames So whats your favourite moment in Twilight? When Bella meets Edward or when Stephanie Meyer sent you a cease and desist

— Rachel_Destross (@Slodka Idiotka)

Will you be rewriting the book from Stephenie Meyer`s point of view next time? #AskELJames

— skepticosaurus (@Skeptical Dinosaur)

#AskELJames What`s the minimum distance you have to stay away from Stephenie Meyer at all times?

— Ceilidhann (@Kayleigh Anne)

As well as jokes about the Q&A itself:

#AskELJames Are you going to take a cold bath later to recover from being so thoroughly burned on Twitter today?

— nessaskybooks (@Vanessa C.)

#AskELJames Do all these negative tweets sent to you seem abusive to you? I think it`s romantic enough to be turned into a novel!

— Krosecz (@Stephan Krosecz)

#AskELJames Are you getting tendinitis from having to hit "block" so often :(

— MaraWritesStuff (@Mara Wilson)

I`d rather #AskELJames`s publicist why they thought this was going to be a good idea.

— Jenny_Trout (@Jenny Trout)

Whoever planned out the #AskELJames tag has obviously never, ever met Twitter.

— Fizzygrrl (@Summer Heacock)

More like Fifty Shades of Awkward, amirite?
