Robert Pattinson Responds to Trump's Tweets About Kristen Stewart Cheating on Him

Robert Pattinson is finally sharing his thoughts on President Donald Trump‘s tweets about his ex Kristen Stewart cheating on him (though he wasn’t president at the time).

If you recall, back in 2012, Trump tweeted (11 times!) about Kristen cheating on her Twilight co-star, starting with, “Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again–just watch. He can do much better!”

Kristen has since spoken out about the incident and even joked about the tweets in her Saturday Night Live opening monologue, afterward claiming that she was disappointed Trump didn’t respond.

Robert laughed when asked about the tweets during his recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, stating, “I think there’s so many different levels of it. Your identity exists on many different planes at the same time and they all can be quite different from each other.”

“When [Trump] said that, it didn’t really mean anything,” Robert added. “But I guess now I’m sort of thinking, like, ‘Well, I guess that is related to me.’ But how does that fit in with all the other things going on in my life? And sometimes you think, ‘Can I use this in my acting? Or should I be putting it away.’ It’s kind of interesting, I guess. I don’t know — this could be why people get annoyed with me.”

Zedd Says Other Artists Should Speak Out About Trump

Zedd looks relaxed on the latest cover of Billboard magazine.

Here’s what the 27-year-old German DJ had to share with the mag:

On President Donald Trump: “No matter how big the scandal is, no matter how insane a [Trump] tweet is, it just keeps going. You feel powerless, and that’s terrible to me. Take that to a bigger scale and you end up in North Korea, where people are slaves of their own country.”

On urging other artists to speak out against Trump: “They don’t want to lose fans. I understand where they are coming from, but I disagree with that being a good reason not to speak up.”

On reaching out to Kesha to make music during public struggles: “It was just a therapy thing, making music with someone to help them feel better.”

Jared Leto, who collaborated with Zedd on a to-be-released 30 Seconds to Mars song (and has also taken him rock climbing), puts it: “He is a relentless worker and really puts in the time. He is not someone who just shows up and takes selfies all day.”

J.K. Rowling Slams Trump for Snubbing Boy in a Wheelchair

J.K. Rowling has spoken out to slam President Trump after he appeared to ignore a boy in a wheelchair’s attempt to shake his hand.

While greeting a group of people on Friday (July 28), the little boy in the wheelchair held his hand in the air and Trump shook several other people’s hands, except his.

An extended cut of the video does show that Trump greeted the boy when he entered the room before his speech. The video that is going viral shows the president leaving the room after the speech.

Rowling posted the video on her Twitter account along with the Maya Angelou quote, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.”

Trump imitated a disabled reporter. Now he pretends not to see a child in a wheelchair, as though frightened he might catch his condition. This monster of narcissism values only himself and his pale reflections. The disabled, minorities, transgender people, the poor, women (unless related to him by ties of blood, and therefore his creations) are treated with contempt, because they do not resemble Trump,” Rowling wrote.
