It’s official. The “Twilight” movies have now claimed their first human life. Their first cougar human life.
I’ve written about these disgusting, idiotic middle-aged American women who have a sick, pedophiliac desire for the guys in the “Twilight” movies. But this woman takes the cake. Remember, this is the same kind of woman making the “Fifty Shades of Grey” porn (which is about people in their 20s) into the most popular books of the year. There’s a chip missing somewhere. It’s like they’re pretending they are kids again and wish to replace real men their own age with fantasy boys in their teens and 20s from fiction. And they call men, “pigs”? Puh-leeze. Most of these women also voted for Obama and will again. The woman was killed running across the street to claim a place in the front of the line for a stupid panel featuring the “Twilight” cast, whom she’d already met. Sad that the woman lost her life (and I feel for her family, if she has one), but still–it was a result of her stupid behavior for actors in a teen movie! Is it mean and cold for me to say so?
A 53-year-old Comic-Con fan who had been camping in front of the San Diego Convention Center to secure a place at the popular “Twilight” panel was struck by a car and killed Tuesday.
The woman was in a crosswalk and had a red light when she tried to run across Harbor Drive toward the convention center about 9:20 a.m., said police Sgt. Ron Glass.
The driver of one car saw her and slowed down, but the driver of a Subaru Outback didn’t see her in time, Glass said. The pedestrian tried to stop her own momentum when she saw the oncoming Subaru but tripped and hit the side of the car, Glass said. . . .
Friends on social media networks have identified her as Gisela Gagliardi, an accountant visiting from Kingston, N.Y. . . . Comic-Con fans said Gagliardi, who was with a group, had been in line since Sunday for the panel for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,” set for Thursday afternoon in Hall H. The highly anticipated panel will include cast appearances and exclusive footage from the movie.
Fans said the convention center staff was about to switch the line, so the beginning became the end, and that she was running to keeping her place in line.
“It’s such a sad loss for our community,” said 23-year-old Melissa Sandate of Tucson, who is a fellow fan of the teen vampire saga.
Here’s a tip: if you are a whole 30 years older than the other fans, perhaps it’s a hint that you’re a little too old to be in love with a genre aimed at teens and 20-somethings. And, in this case, it also proved to be fatal.
Gagliardi’s passion for “Twilight” is well-documented on her Facebook page. In 2010, she posted a photo of her and a friend posing with the movie’s star, Robert Pattinson, in Los Angeles. She also mentions standing in line at Comic-Con last year.
Oy, that’s almost as sad as her dying. This is a 53-year-old woman waiting days to glimpse teen and 20-something stars. Tragic.
Acting like a teen when you’re in your 50s could be deadly. And in more ways than in this instance.
Jimmy Kimmel had a funny video of these idiot adults camping outside Comic-Con to see the “Twilight” cast. It makes me wanna channel William Shatner on “Saturday Night Live,” when he told the Trekkies to get a life. Or, as in this case, try to not lose yours.
