Emma Roberts has deleted her Twitter account after she was bombarded with nasty tweets from Twilight fans. The death threats were received after Emma suggested that she prefers the character Jacob Black over Edward Cullen.
It all went down on The Tonight Show, Tuesday night, after the 19-year-old revealed the preference to Jay Leno and a present Robert Pattinson who was another guest on the late night talk show (as previously reported on Teen Chive).
While Robert did not mind, his fans most certainly did.
As soon as the actress made the statement, E! News reports that Emma started receiving vicious tweets from Edward’s fans and was forced to delete her Twitter account.
Emma closed her account on June 16th, but prior to doing so, wrote a last parting thought about the 24-year-old Pattinson: Rob Pattinson is so nice! I was slightly disappointed his skin wasn’t glittering & the song ’Wild Thing’ didn’t start when he shook my hand.
In other news, Emma is reportedly dating Kristen Stewart’s ex-boyfriend Michael Angarano.
