Hysterical: Twilight mega fan Emma Clark bursts into tears as she posts ranting video on YouTube slating Kristen Stewart for cheating on Robert Pattinson
And now one overzealous devotee has taken to YouTube to share a four-minute clip slating Kristen for breaking the actor's heart.
Brit Emma Clark, who labels herself NuttyMadam on her YouTube profile as well as her Twitter page, recorded the clip as she ranted and cried while aiming her words at Kristen.
She spirals into hysterics as she breaks down in tears reading out Stewart's statement admitting the tryst.
Emma rants: 'I don't understand how she can do this... why would you cheat on Robert Pattinson with friggin Rupert, whatever his name is?
'I'm so not okay with this.'
She then added through streams of tears: 'I'm so in shock she's posted that statement. If you loved him that much you wouldn't have done it.'
Clark then screams at the camera slating Kristen for getting caught by a photographer during one of their clinches.
And she has written on her Twitter page: 'CongratuF**KINGlations Rupert Sanders. You just p**sed off a million people cause you just couldn't keep it in your pants...
'Going to sleep now. Thanks for an interesting day and Kristen...You HUSSY.'
The video, which lasts just over four minutes 20 seconds, looks set to go viral, with hundreds of thousands of views already being logged since she posted it up online last night.
It mirrors the video of a Britney Spears fan urging people to leave the pop star alone in 2007, which has now garnered 44 million views to date.

'This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry.'
There was no response, at least publicly, from Robert.
And while she mentioned Robert in her public apology, it was noted she missed Liberty out of her statement, despite affecting her marriage as a result of her actions.
