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.

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!
