On Wednesday, the Internet went bonkers with the news that Stewart, 22, cheated on longtime boyfriend Pattinson, 26, with married director Rupert Sanders, 41. The backlash only got worse after Stewart issued a public apology to Rob. Meanwhile, the "Born This Way" singer was watching the media circus unfold, and she seemed a little horrified by it all.
"Geez this kirstew rob stuff is brutal," Gaga tweeted on Wednesday. "Makes me sad the way press acts. hope they're ok."
The pop star may have been saddened by RobstenGate, but her reaction was mild compared to that of the Internet's betrayed Twihards. Vlogger Nutty Madam, for example, had a total breakdown on YouTube (although to be fair, she also had a total breakdown when the last Breaking Dawn trailer came out). Watch her video below.
Some of Twitter's most vehement anti-K-Stew reactions have been collected by Jezebel, including multiple death threats and dramatic hashtags like #MyWholeLifeIsALie. You can also see a page full of betryaed fans' Tumblr reactions -- including poetry! -- at Zap2It. And for the Twi-hards who haven't yet lost their faith in love, the Twitter hashtag #robstenforever is steadily trending. Then, of course, there are the comedians.
"As Syria spirals into civil war, CNN asks: Should Robert Pattinson forgive Kristen Stewart for cheating?" notes Borowitz Report author Andy Borowitz.
Finally, there are the fans who can't believe that Kristen would ever cheat on Rob, and who claim that the entire story (including the Us Weekly photos) is a hoax. Sorry folks, but those public apologies from Stewart and Sanders have pretty much confirmed that the fling was real. Can the Twilight couple recover? That's a question that's still up in the air.
