EL James Twitter Q&A Gone Hilariously Wrong...
EL James’ PR team have something big to answer for after hosting a Twitter Q&A on Monday.
Things quickly turned sour…
Some people asked about her questionable writing skills…

Some ask for relationship advice…
If I stalk a girl and GPS her car, does that mean it's true love? #AskELJames— Trevor Donovan (@TrevDon) June 29, 2015

There were many Twilight-themed questions...

Some valid questions for her PR people...
Somewhere, there is a PR/social exec frantically searching the #AskELJames tag for questions she can *actually* answer.— Laura Thomas (@_eltee) June 29, 2015
