The news that Kristen Stewart cheated on "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders led to some extreme reactions. But perhaps no reaction was as passionate as YouTube's nuttymadam3575.
Clearly a fan of the Twilight movies and books, nuttymadam3575 (real name: Emma Clark) posted a video -- subtly entitled: "HOW COULD YOU DO THIS KRISTEN?!" -- detailing her thoughts on the scandal. Speaking into the camera, the young woman starts out relatively calmly. "I said I wasn't going to make a video about this because I didn't want it to be true because I thought that it (the photo of Kristen smooching Rupert) was Photoshopped."

If only. Once she realized that the photos were real and Stewart had apologized, the gloves came off and the tear ducts opened for business. At first, she makes some interesting pleas for Stewart's and Pattinson's privacy. "I feel everybody needs to back off. This is none of your business.... You wouldn't walk into a shop and ask the sales assistant, 'Hey, when was the last time you crapped?' Because, let's face it, that's inappropriate, that's someone's personal information."
You'll get no argument from us, Emma.
Clark admonishes Stewart not just for cheating, but also for making a public statement about it, adding "Don't be so stupid!"
She reads Stewart's statement admitting to the dalliance. Halfway through the reading, she goes through a range of emotions. There is grief, rage (at Stewart, natch), and then an attempt to make sense of something that we suspect will never make sense. She closes with a light-hearted threat to leave the couple alone.
We'd be hard-pressed to find a more emotional response to the scandal, but there is no shortage of passion in the comments on stories around the Web. On omg's story about Stewart's apology, just about all the commenters sided with the spurned Pattinson. One person wrote, "Once a cheater always a cheater... She cheated on her last boyfriend with Robert Pattinson and now she cheated on him with someone else." Another posted: "She should thank her lucky stars if he sticks with her because he seems like a sweet guy and can do better."
But a few did lend their support to Stewart. "She came clean and is asking for forgiveness," a commenter posted. "The only way a lot of people can learn, truly LEARN is from their mistakes. Hopefully Rob is mature enough to understand this."
And finally, there was a bit of levity from a commenter looking to put the news into perspective. "I hope the world will manage to move on from this tragedy."
