First here is a compilation of various news sources versions of the story (all sited below) and then I will add my two - cents on the issue.
Emma Roberts, niece of Julia Roberts, might have felt brave when she announced she's on Team Jacob while sitting next to Edward himself, Robert Pattinson, but she wasn't feeling brave anymore when Team Edward went after her. The 19-year-old actress shut down her Twitter account after being attacked by the "Twilight" vampire's supporters.
On the "Tonight Show," Roberts fearlessly said she's on Team Jacob while Pattinson was sitting next to her.
The 24-year-old English actor jokingly replied, "Well, you just revealed yourself to have no taste."
And although the two appeared to have a good time goading each other, Team Edward wasn't amused.
Pattinson's fans flocked to Roberts' Twitter and posted not-so-kind things about the actress just because she didn't share their taste. Roberts has apparently shut down her account because of the barrage of Team Edward tweets, according to eonline.com.
Roberts has co-starred with Taylor Lautner, who plays Jacob in the "Twilight" film series, on "Valentine's Day." That might explain her devotion to the team.
Emma Roberts has been scared by nasty tweets from Twihards after revealing that she is Team Jacob during her appearance with Robert Pattinson in 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'.
Emma Roberts has run off her Twitter account following her confession
on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on June 15, E! Online reported.
During her visit, Emma told host Jay Leno that she is Team Jacob, and
although Robert Pattinson, also on the show with her, could take the
avowal with a joke, Twihards were unfortunately not.
She told Robert Pattinson, "Your hair looks wonderful
in person but I have to say I'm Team Jacob," with the 24-year-old actor
jokingly replying "You've just revealed yourself to have absolutely no
Having attended this taping and sitting dead center very close I saw all of this go down live and think Emma Roberts came across a bit ditzy, unprofessional, rude, snotty and entitled.
I honestly hadn't heard of her before Tuesday and I didn't know who she was. Her comment about being "Team Jacob" didn't offend me at all, though I thought it was kind of rude to say to the actor who plays Edward. Although she quite likely meant it as a joke it came across as a "dig" at Robert Pattinson, though I had no idea why - I assumed she thought she'd be "cool" and come across "uncaring" about such a huge superstar....
After the show, however, I learned she is rumoured to be dating her Homework co-star Michael Angarano, who also happens to be Kristen Stewart's ex-boyfriend. How strange to have Kristen Stewarts current man on a talkshow with her ex's current gal.... awkward?
Of course knowing this gives a WHOLE new meaning to Rob's statement: "You've just revealed yourself to have absolutely no
Either way, I don't hate Emma Roberts for being Team Jacob, I just think it was career suicide to be so snotty to one of the biggest superstars in the world... even if she meant it as a joke, um, have you seen her movies? She can't really act - so trying to pull off "funny" on live tv was a bad move.
Just my opinion.
Now for extra fun - here's a clip of the statement and behind the scenes after the show bahahah
