New Twilight Lawsuit Claims the Movies Are Racist & Perverted

by: on | in Entertainment News | 8 Comments

SummitRemember back in May of this year when there was mention of a lawsuit between the makers of Twilight and the creators of a Twilight parody (with $500 million at the center of it all!)? Yeah, well now that's making headlines once again because the suers are now claiming that the franchise is racist and perverted, among other things.

According to TMZ, Between the Lines Productions, the producers behind spoof Twiharder, claim that the Kristen Stewart– and Robert Pattinson-led series is fair game to parody because "it showcased questionable conduct regarding domestic violence, teen pregnancy, drug addiction, date rape, and racism."

Domestic violence in regards to the sex scene, teen pregnancy because of Bella's human/vampire hybrid embryo, drug addiction in reference to Edward's personal brand of heroine (Bella), date rape because of the main characters' nearly 100-year age difference, and racism due to the depiction of Native Americans as "bloodthirsty warriors, noble savages and sexual predators."

BtL wants Summit to pay greatly because the larger studio sent a "sham" cease-and-desist notice, thereby ruining the parody company's relationships with distributors and insurers who revoked their offers. This is getting NUTS. What do you think of the lawsuit? Do you believe any of the allegations that Twilight is racist, perverted, sexist, etc.? Weigh in via the comments below!

  • mani

    It makes a lot of since but nobody could just know that of hand someone would have to dig deep into the movie and stuff to find that out. SO IN THAT CASE IF NONE OF THE FANS FELT THAT WAY THEY NEED TO BUZZ OF WITH THE BULLSHIT

    Although I’m pretty neutral on Twilight as it is, I think people really need to stop making up reasons to say it’s oh-so-awful. “Domestic violence”? Are you kidding? She got bruises from rough sex, not him beating her. Teen pregnancy… Fine, but she was out of high school. “Date rape” – do these people even know the definition of rape? She was fully consenting, regardless of a roughly-100 year age difference, and she’s over the age of consent. And racist – this one I’m on the fence because it’s not as definitive as the other subjects. Taken out of context, it all sounds bad. People twist things to make them how they want it, and that’s what’s wrong with the world.
