Robert Pattinson Kristen Stewart Fear Backlash? What Backlash?

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart would be prancing down Hollywood Boulevard to show off their newly rekindled romance, if not for a feared backlash. That claim has become standard for tabloids reporting their reunion. We say.. what backlash?

Stewart 22, and Pattinson, 26 were photographed together last night (Oct. 14) for the first time since their split and grainy photos of them together have been published by some media outlets.

They were spotted at the Ye Rustic Inn, a bar in Los Angeles’ trendy Los Feliz neighborhood, where Pattinson has a house that he shared with Stewart before their breakup.

In another report, USWeekly claimed the “Twilight” couple sneaked into the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood for a “pal’s birthday party.”

The reconciled “Breaking Dawn Part 2 co-stars” kept their outing “on-the-downlow by design, of course,” the magazine claimed. “They’re afraid of backlash, so they’re keeping things on the down-low,” a supposed pal told the tabloid.

But isn’t their reconciliation something to celebrate? Certainly their fans would welcome it and Summit Entertainment would like nothing better than seeing them back together to promote “Breaking Dawn, Part 2.” The movie hits theaters Nov. 16.

So where would the backlash come from? Fans of Rob’s who don’t want to see them back together? They’re surely a minority. But if they care that much for Rob wouldn’t the support him? The same goes for his family and friends, if they really are opposed to the idea. But no one outside of tabloid sources says they are.

The idea of a backlash seems like one more fiction to hype the story. Let us know your thoughts and click here to follow TheImproper on Twitter for more Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart updates you can trust.
