'Fifty Shades of Grey' Author E.L. James Took a Ton of Heat During Her Twitter Q&A
E.L. James, author of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” book series, is taking a ton of heat on Twitter today after holding a Q&A.
The author took questions about the book series, but was also bombarded with statements regarding her alleged homophobia, glorification of abuse, her writing style, and more.
“#AskELJames I need advice on making a BIG romantic gesture. Should I put a GPS tracker in her phone and make threats if she tries to leave?” one user asked. “#AskELJames do you find it ironic that you write as if someone has tied you to a chair and forced you to?” another posed.
