We're sad, you're sad. News last night that Kristen Stewart cheated on longtime boyfriend Robert Pattinson with her married "Snow White and the Hunstman" director Rupert Sanders shocked some "Twilight" fans to the core. The proof was hard to shake: Us Weekly published photographs of Stewart, 22, caught in an intimate embrace with Sanders, nearly 20 years her senior.

But then there was more. On Wednesday afternoon, the famously private Stewart took to People magazine to issue an outrageously candid statement, admitting that she had had a "momentary indiscretion," apologizing to the 26-year-old Pattinson and declaring, seemingly for the first time in public, her love for him.

Naturally, Twitter is freaking out, with both #Rupert Sanders and #Robert Pattinson trending Wednesday afternoon. Launch our gallery below to see some of the most memorable comments.
