Hollywood news has learned that “Twilight” author STEPHENIE MEYER is not a fan of the term “Twi-hard,” which, in case you didn’t know, is the name ”Twilight” fans call themselves—a combination of the word “Twilight” and “die-hard.”
Watch out, Steph. You don’t want to anger the Twi-hards… some of those people actually wear fangs.
In her recent interview with E! News at the red carpet premiere of “Breaking Dawn,” Ms. Stephenie Meyer admitted:
“I don’t really like ‘Twi-hard.’ It sounds awful.”
That’s kind of a huge bummer for all your Twi-hard fans, Stephenie. But we kinda get what you mean about it sounding “awful.” It does sound a bit obscene, actually, thanks to the “hard” part… but we won’t get into that.
Now Stephenie may not be a fan of the term Twi-hard, but she does like one “Twilight”-related word:
“I guess the Robstens are really funny to me… You know, because they care so much about that relationship. It’s just, I find it amusing.”
We wonder if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, the two people for which the moniker was made, find it amusing, too.
Do you agree with Stephenie? Is Twi-hard an “awful” nickname for her bestselling book’s fanbase?
