After the heartbreaking 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Japan, tsunami warnings were posted along the West Coast on Friday – from the US to Canada, every coast on the west was to be affected by the quake. But anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that while the west coast was to be hit with some big waves, they weren’t going to reach the same level as the tsunami that hit Japan. Apparently, a Twilight cast member is seriously lacking that common sense.
After the quake, actors Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and other Twilight cast members were forced to evacuate the Tofino beach area of British Columbia where they have been filming Breaking Dawn. Tofino contains a long stretch of open coast on the furthest westerly point of Vancouver Island, so like other coastal areas it was bound to be affected by the earthquake, and just to be safe, the cast was sent away for a day.
But of course, this one-day departure of the actors did not go down without drama.
Tinsel Korey, a Canadian actress who plays a Makah tribal member, Emily Young, in the movies, sent out a tweet on Twitter after she got the news:
“They’re evacuating us 4 a tsumnani warning. If this . . . is my last my tweet. I love you. The end. Hugz.”
She later tweeted:
“If this is the moment. Then I’ve lived a good life. And I’m thankful 4 everything I’ve been given.”
Yeah, a bit pathetic and melodramatic if you ask me. The tsunami warning was later called off and Korey’s death tweets were deleted after nothing more than a few small waves hit Tofino beach (shown right). Filming resumed this past Saturday.
I’m guessing she felt pretty stupid after her disgusting dramatic twitter show – and she should. If anyone should be getting attention right now it’s Japan, not some clueless Twilight star. The death toll in Japan is estimated to be well over 10,000, with countless injured victims being discovered every day. Instead of consoling Korey on Twitter, everyone should head over here instead and do what they can to aid the victims in Japan, they’re the ones that really need help.
