The First Rule of Twilight Fans is Don’t Piss Off Twilight Fans

David Slade, director of Twilight’s third installment, Eclipse, has some fans out for blood. The whole thing is based off a rumor that either started at a radio interview or on his twitter account. His words cut the the bone of the emotastic devotee’s.

Here’s the offending comment:

“Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.”

That comment, as awesome as it was, ruffled a lot of feathers and eventually led to a session of crow eating and this apology.

Here’s what he had to say to Twilight Lexicon:

When I made these comments, I had neither seen the film nor read the books. I was promoting a comedy short film that I had made for Xbox and every pop culture subject was seen as a possible comedy target. I was being silly and none of the statements were from the heart.

Of course, I have since seen the movie and read the books and was quickly consumed with the rich storytelling and the beautifully honest characters that Stephenie Meyer created.

I would like to reassure everyone involved that I am invested in making the best film that I am humanly capable of, and that I am acutely aware of the power of the original books we serve. Please be rest assured this statement is absolutely from the heart.
