When Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James announced a Q&A on Twitter on Monday with the hashtag #AskELJames, she probably wasn’t expecting these questions:

Which do you hate more, women or the English language? #AskELJames

— eyeswideshut75 (@Ian Robinson)

Needless to say, things escalated very quickly.

Do you ever feel guilty that you made so much money from romanticizing sexual abuse and selling it as “erotica romance”? #AskELJames

— Jherane_ (@Margarita Atwood)

#AskELJames Is it only ok for Christian to stalk, coerce, threaten & manipulate Ana because he’s hot, or is it also ok because he’s rich?

— 50shadesabuse (@50 Shades is abuse)

#AskELJames Can you confirm that you will be writing the story of Ramsay Bolton from his perspective, showing he is just misunderstood?

— GameOverRos (@Ros)

Did you see the abusive relationship of Bella and Edward and think “hmm needs more abuse” #AskELJames

— RachelCDailey (@R_chelCh_rlt_nD_iley)

#AskELJames after the success of “Grey,” have you considered re-telling the story from the perspective of someone who can write

— avestal (@Andrew Vestal)

#AskELJames I need advice on making a BIG romantic gesture. Should I put a GPS tracker in her phone and make threats if she tries to leave?

— LiamDrydenEtc (@Liam Dryden)

There were plenty of jokes about Stephenie Meyer:

Are you going to answer any of these questions, or do you need Stephenie Meyer to do a Twitter chat first? #AskELJames

— bethorne (@Beth Thorne)

#AskELJames So whats your favourite moment in Twilight? When Bella meets Edward or when Stephanie Meyer sent you a cease and desist

— Rachel_Destross (@Słodka Idiotka)

Will you be rewriting the book from Stephenie Meyer’s point of view next time? #AskELJames

— skepticosaurus (@Skeptical Dinosaur)

#AskELJames What’s the minimum distance you have to stay away from Stephenie Meyer at all times?

— Ceilidhann (@Kayleigh Anne)

As well as jokes about the Q&A itself:

#AskELJames Are you going to take a cold bath later to recover from being so thoroughly burned on Twitter today?

— nessaskybooks (@Vanessa C.)

#AskELJames Do all these negative tweets sent to you seem abusive to you? I think it’s romantic enough to be turned into a novel!

— Krosecz (@Stephan Krosecz)

#AskELJames Are you getting tendinitis from having to hit “block” so often :(

— MaraWritesStuff (@Mara Wilson)

I’d rather #AskELJames’s publicist why they thought this was going to be a good idea.

— Jenny_Trout (@Jenny Trout)

Whoever planned out the #AskELJames tag has obviously never, ever met Twitter.

— Fizzygrrl (@Summer Heacock)

More like Fifty Shades of Awkward, amirite?
