Anne Rice insults Twilight vampires, again
Anne Rice really likes to take jabs at Twilight, sparkly vampires and Stephenie Meyer. She’s done it before. A couple of times. Well, she’s gone and done it again. This time on her Facebook page. From THR:
“Lestat and Louie feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun,” said Rice, referring to her popular characters (who were portrayed by Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in the 1994 movie). “They would never hurt immortals who choose to spend eternity going to high school over and over again in a small town —- anymore than they would hurt the physically disabled or the mentally challenged. My vampires possess gravitas. They can afford to be merciful.”
Editor’s Note: I have never understood why people aren’t allowed to have artistic freedom with something that doesn’t exist. Anne Rice is not the first person that wrote vampires. And she won’t be the last. So let’s stop blasting everyone like the fictional characters have to fit into a box. OK, rant done.
