Yes, you read that right. One of the mailing groups I’m on was shocked by this recently, so I thought I’d share. A young Twilight fan wrote a letter to the website latinoreview.com. I had no idea there was a Latino Review site, but there you go.
This letter writer does nothing for the reputation of “young folk today”. She’s a die-hard Taylor Lautner fan and quite, quite dumb. Who the fuck is Taylor Lautner? Yeah, I wondered that too. Turns out he’s the guy that plays the werewolf in Twilight. I thought Twilight was all about sexually confused sparkly vampires or something, but apparently there are werewolves too. Anyway, this dumb teenager tries to rip Universal a new one by writing to complain about how they’ve shamelessly ripped off Twlight with this new Wolfman movie. (Yes, the remake of the 1941 movie, The Wolfman with Lon Chaney Jr and several others since).
I’ll just repost her letter in its entirety:
To whom this may concern:
This movie was a complete waste and I feel that it offends ALL Twilight Fans around the world, that including myself. For one, it was a COMPLETE remaking of the Wolf Pack from the Twilight Saga: New Moon. It gives the werewolves a bad name and makes them look like some deformed mutation of a rabid dog. I actually started to like werewolves after seeing Jacob Black and all his awesomeness on the big screen at the movies. That was until I saw your crappy remake of what you call to be a “were wolf”. I don’t see how you live with yourself for making it the way you did. If I made this movie, I would be ashamed to even admit that I owned it. How can a werewolf be killed with a silver bullet? Better yet, have you saw the transformation of the man that is “supposed” to be the wolf? He sits in some chair and his entire body turns in to some mutated freak. If you would watch the transformation of Jacob Black, (Taylor Lautner) he doesn’t come close to looking as fake, cheap and or mutated as the wolf man. You tell me, who looks to be the better werewolf. Your stupid Wolf Movie didn’t even make the top Movie for the charts; Valentines Day WITH TAYLOR Lautner! Get that this is MY oppinion and I felt I wanted to express it because I saw that your email was on your site. I wanted to let you know this is what i thought of the wolf man that sucks.
FREAKIN LAUTNER DID!
The Poser of who could never be even if they tried : ” Aka : Rabid poser Werewolf “The Wolf Man”
[She then includes a pic from the new Wolfman movie.]
OR My favorite: Taylor Daniel Lautner aka Jacob Black
[Followed by a pic of a pretty boy and a dog.]
TEAM JACOB- cuz hes a REAL WEREWOLVE!

And oh yes, they replied. There are over 500 comments and a lot of those are from idiots too. The letter itself, regardless of the content, hurts my brain. Are they still teaching English in school? Do kids still go to school? I’m guessing this one doesn’t.
Go here to read the whole post, along with Kayla’s pics. Seriously, young people today!
