Not All Fans Are Bat-Sh*t Crazy: NYU Student Runs into Rob on Way to Class

Brayndi wrote about her fan encounter with Rob yesterday:
I totally agree with all the comments made about the lack of respect that was shown to Rob yesterday while filming. I am an NYU student and I was there before I had to go to one of my classes, and the pandemonium was even more intense that the pictures or video make it out to be. I am a fan of Rob myself, but I understand that he is WORKING and isn't some circus side show for people to oogle at. I stayed behind the barricades and watched from where the producers told us to. But some of those girls, and I did see the "girls" that made it into the video, were relentless. Every time that he was minutely unprotected they rushed him to try and get autographs and pictures. It was disgusting.

When it was time for me to go to class I walked into the building where most of NYU's classrooms are and just happened to see Rob standing by the elevators apparently trying to escape the craziness outside. (They were also using the building for other movie purposes as well) I approached him very nicely and ASKED him if I could take a picture with him and he was more than nice. He asked me if I went to school at NYU and told him I was actually on my way to class. I commented on the hysteria outside and he laughed. So I hope that I was able to show him that not all fans are as batsh-t crazy as the ones that were mobbing him.
Thanks, Brayndi!

  1. Obviously your mother taught you some manners, a lost art these days. Those other crazies need to go to Cotillion and learn how to respect the space of others. Good grief!

  8. Brandi, you are awesome! I feel like yesterday was just one of those low points for Twilight fans. Between seeing the video this weekend of the paps in NYC chasing him around --- and than that behavior yesterday; it wasn't exactly a proud day to be a Twilight fan and clearly not a group that many of us would want to be associated with.

    But I'm amazed at your description of Robert's attitude. I'm not sure that if I had crazy fangirls, hounding and jumping all over me, I'd be so nice to anyone wanting much of anything for me, (even if they were the nice, respectful kind). It is really nice to know - that Robert doesn't seem to have lumped all fans into the batsh!t crazy category.

    Thanks for the good post about the NYC filming. It is much needed.

  24. Finally a fan that shows how most of the rest of us would/do act when and if we could meet the cast. Way to go and thanks for doing something positive to help restore our image. What those girls did yesterday was stupid, disrespectful, crazy, and rude. Plain and simple. Way to go, Brayndi!

  25. Thank you for being SANE, respectful and courteous Brayndi! That's so cool that you got to meet him. Thank for sharing your story.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yeah Brandi you go girl, you represent us Normal Twinerds very well!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thank you - I am so glad to hear that SOME twilight fans are not rude & insensitive!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm so glad you got to meet him and got to represent the normal fans!!! Thanks for sharing your story!

  30. Brayndi:

    Very well done! I'm sure your soothing presence was just what he needed at that moment, after the mayhem and disgusting behavior that was allowed to unfold on the street.

  31. Brayndi,

    Thank you so much for being sane.
    I saw only a video clip of the utter chaos in NYC, and was totally disgusted by the lack of respect.
    Thank you for reminding Rob that not all of us are total loonies, and that we're capable of the quiet admiration he and other actors deserve.

    -Lanna

  32. hey brandy

    Good for you in going about meeting him the appropriate way, not screaming in his face or anything else he doesn't need. I'm glad you were able to represent the fans who respect him and his personal space (poor guy), which I'm sure he was appreciative of.

  33. Seems weird that the conversation you are claiming to have had with Rob is the same exact one that my friend had with Rob while you were standing in the background watching and obviously listening to.

    Just an observation......

    ReplyDelete
  34. I know that fans get exited when they see Robert but those groping girls were out of line. Ms. Brayndi, perhaps you have redeemed his faith in the sanity of his fans and Twilighters everywhere......like many, I thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm really impressed and glad to hear about this fan encounter.. You know I'm one week new to this Twilight frenzy and I love Edward Cullen just as much as the next Twilight fan, but seriously, some of these Twilighters need to CALM down. I love* Robert Pattinson just like any other fan, but honstly I don't think I would have the guts jump all over him and act that way. I'd be way too embarrassed of myself if I acted like a fanatic.


    *I'm using this word as losely as it can be used.

  36. She is proof that there are still people in this world that know what respect mean! I thought it was very sad that Rob was totally mob - I mean, yeah, he is working people.....get a grip....oh, and a life!! You rock Brandy & I'mjealous as hell!!! hhehehehehehe!

    ReplyDelete
  37. his wish was for people to have "no reaction at all" when they see him. so i wished braindy would have left him alone after that situation outside. her good manners don´t make it better for him as long as he hates taking pictures and is already stressed out

    ReplyDelete
  38. WHAT!?! You watched what happened outside and still had the guts to bother him??? Braindy you are just as disrespectful as those girls in that sh...y vid! Just leave him alone!

    ReplyDelete
  39. wow. her name is clearly in the article. learn to read and spell correctly, buddy.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thank you for being respectful to Rob. He was shown again that New Yorkers really can go about their day and not cause him problems. The fact he actually started the conversion must have made your day. I bet you didn't count on being smart and getting into NYU would give you this opportunity.
