50 Shades Of Grey News Archive
Welllllll… this certainly backfired.
Author E.L. James and her team decided to hold a Q&A on Twitter using the hashtag #AskELJames and as the internet is oft to do, people took the event in a direction different than the 50 Shades of Grey creator was intending.
You see, while promoting her fourth book Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian, the 52-year-old author wanted her fans to ask her questions about things like her writing process… but instead she was plagued with hilarious tweets questioning her talent.
But it wasn't just fans who got in on the fun — celebs like Caitlin Stasey, Trevor Donovan, and Mara Wilson laid into E.L. as well!
Ch-ch-check out some of the best moments from the failed PR stunt (below)!!!

When we heard E.L James was writing another Fifty Shades of Grey book that would just be the same story, we were a little skeptical.
But when the book was released at midnight, we found out that getting everything from Christian's perspective is VERY different.

Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian Is Already On Bestseller Lists — And It Hasn't Even Come Out Yet!
The story re-tells the events that take place during Fifty Shades of Grey, but from the perspective of mysterious billionaire Christian Grey!
Even though the book isn't going to be released until later this month, it's already whipped to the top of Barnes & Noble and Amazon bestseller lists!
Readers of the original series have been DYING to get inside the head of the fictitious character, as the author even dedicated the book to her enthusiastic fans. James wrote in the opening page:
"This book is dedicated to those readers who asked… and asked… and asked… and asked for this."
Sounds like they were pretty persistent!
