‘I’m so gay, dude!’ Kristen Stewart responds to Trump’s creepy obsession with her
Out actress Kristen Stewart has publicly responded to President Trump’s creepy obsession with her.
Before she came out, the actress had an on-again off-again romance with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson – but they broke up in 2012 amid tabloid rumours of infidelity.
The now-President Donald Trump grew obsessed with Stewart at the time, sending a notorious string of tweets about her spanning several months comparing her to a dog.
Trump tweeted: “Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again–just watch. He can do much better!”
On another occasion he added: “Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert.”
While hosting President Trump’s favourite TV show Saturday Night Live, Stewart – who came out as gay in 2015 – directly addressed the show’s most loyal viewer.
She said: “I’m a little nervous to be hosting because I know the president is probably watching and I don’t think he likes me that much. Here’s how I know.
“A few years ago I was dating this guy called Robert, and we broke up and then we got back together, and for some reason it made Donald Trump go insane.”
Reading out the ‘dog’ tweet, she continued: “I know what you’re thinking, right? That’s so crazy, the President tweeted about you once.

“No, no, the President tweeted about me 11 times.”
Reading out a tweet inviting Pattinson to find a new girlfriend at the Miss America pageant, she quipped: “To be fair, I don’t think Donald Trump hated me, I think he’s in love with my boyfriend.”
Stewart added: “The President is not a huge fan of me, but that is so OK. And Donald, if you didn’t like me then, you’re really probably not going to like me now, because I’m hosting SNL and I’m, like, so gay dude!”
The actress explained previously that coming out had made her happier.
She said: “When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, so I didn’t like it.
“We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that.
“But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it’, so I had to alter how I approached being in public.
“It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.”
