E.L. James Got Destroyed By Twitter During Terrible 'Fifty Shades' Q&A
I will be straight with you, People Of The Internet: Everything I know about "Fifty Shades of Grey" came from watching the movie on a plane, on someone else’s screen, with no sound.
Apparently, it is about a man who hates girls but loves legal documents.
Yesterday E.L. James, the writer of the impressive book (which sports magnificently lyrical lines like, “Suck me, baby.”), decided to do a Q&A on Twitter.
More accurately, E.L. James’ publicists decided they should squeeze one last bit of press from her nipple-hardening books by optimistically tossing her into a pit of Internet piranhas.
Unfortunately, Twitter had other ideas.

#AskELJames Can you confirm that you will be writing the story of Ramsay Bolton from his perspective, showing he is just misunderstood? — Ros (@GameOverRos) June 29, 2015

#AskELJames if E.L.James asks for these tweets to stop, does that mean she really wants them to continue? — Johnny Quid. (@Steelnicks) June 30, 2015
#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! — Stephan Krosecz (@Krosecz) June 29, 2015
Did you see the abusive relationship of Bella and Edward and think "hmm needs more abuse" #AskELJames — R_chelCh_rlt_nD_iley (@RachelCDailey) June 29, 2015
The Q&A had more burns than Pompeii.

Are you going to answer any of these questions, or do you need Stephenie Meyer to do a Twitter chat first? #AskELJames — Beth Thorne (@bethorne) June 29, 2015
#AskELJames Were you watching Dexter when you wrote the scene where Christian buys stuff at the hardware store Ana works at? — Vanessa C. (@nessaskybooks) June 29, 2015

My personal favorite involved the phrase, "truth bombs and a sea of truth pudding."
i see people complaining about the #AskELJames tweets being "rude" or "hating", but all i see are truth bombs and a sea of truth pudding. — Rebekah Weatherspoon (@rebekahwsm) June 29, 2015
#AskELJames : how much can Christian grey lift? Can he do sick skateboard moves? When is he going to prison — The Frenemy Online (@The_Frenemy) June 29, 2015
When are people going to learn that if millions of people hate you, don't do a public Q&A on the Internet?
#AskELJames A lad once punched me on a night out. Does this mean he likes me? Should I have gotten his number? — natgovin (@notgavin) June 29, 2015
