Anyone familiar with the principle of the Fifty Shades of Grey series would know how E.L. James explores – highlights, glorifies, exalts? – BDSM relationships. She did a live Twitter Q&A with the hashtag #AskELJames yesterday, which netizens have taken as an opportunity to throw shade (pun so intended).

Needless to say, our faith in sensible literature-appreciating humanity has been restored. The Q&A has ended, but the tweets feeding the hashtag have not. We know, we know, despite all this negativity, E.L. continues to write her way to the big bucks, but still... Break out the popcorn, this is only going to get better.
