Monday, November 10th, 2008 at 5:45 pm in Twilight Saga.
A spokesperson at Hot Topic at Stonestown Galleria in San Francisco confirmed that the “Twilight” event is back on. Earlier in the day, the autograph session with actor Robert Pattinson (Edward) was canceled because of safety issues. A few injuries were reported when 3,000 mostly teenage girls lined up outside the store to buy a T-shirt that would guarantee them a meet-and-greet with the actor this evening.
Store personnel were still able to sell the T-shirts and distribute bracelets, so the actor issued a press release saying he would make the appearance to autograph posters only. The scheduled question-and-answer session was canceled. For more on how the day’s events unfolded, see our earlier blog entry.
