Kristen Stewart's infidelity has oddly affected the lives of strangers who cherished the "Twilight" star's relationship with Robert Pattinson and has opened a new door in the apparel industry.
Graphic Tee designers are capitalizing on the scandalous affair between Stewart and her 41-year-old married "Snow White and the Huntsman" director, Rupert Sanders. Custom tee brand, Skreened, is offering three anti-KStew tops. Team Robert Pattinson can now display their stance on the "serious" epidemic by wearing a tee captioned "Robert Pattinson Deserves Better", "Kristen Stewart is a Trampire", or if one should ever feel so strongly "Kristen Stewart F*cking Sucks." The aggressive shirts have an even more aggressive item description; the "Kristen Stewart is a Trampire" tee description reads, "That dirty vampire slut! Why would you cheat on Rob?"

Many are crying sexism over the "Trampire" shirts because Stewart is being demonized while her partner in crime Sanders has no novelty items being sold in spite of him. The "Trampire" name was coined by Will Ferrell when he shared his take on the cheating "Twilight" star. What was first a clever joke has now become a topic of anti-feminism.
The backlash Stewart is receiving is definitely expected being that she is such a high-profile celebrity. That reason alone can counter the anti-feminist argument. Mega-stars like Stewart get scrutinized for every move and every decision. Because she was in a relationship with her cult-classic "Twilight" co-star Pattinson, millions of crazed fans feel as if they are a part of the relationship - they cannot separate Bella and Edward from the real-life actors.
As for why Stewart is getting the mean tees and not Sanders, take a look at the 3 reasons below:
Kristen Stewart is a mega-star. Stewart has a massive fan-base whereas Sanders does not. Many never even knew the face of the director until the scandal. The bigger the celebrity, the bigger the publicity - good or bad.
People Care about her partner. Pattinson is not the only one hurt from the cheating. Sanders wife of 10 years (longer than the 4-year dating relationship between the young "Twilight" stars) Liberty Ross is the mother of two small children and she faces the embarrassment of being cheated on. Ross hardly makes as much headlines as Pattinson. Again, the bigger the celebrity, the bigger the publicity. Because more people have a connection with Pattinson, he will receive more compassion and his "oppressor" will reap hell.
Kristen Stewart will sell more. She's an it-girl in Hollywood, a house-hold name, and she'll always be in the spotlight. Sanders is a behind-the-scenes guy and is too new to even get the attention. Stewart is just more bankable.
It's not a sexist issue; it's an issue that repeats itself in Hollywood over and over again. When Brad Pitt cheated on Jennifer Aniston, he was condemned and she was regarded as an angel. When Chris Brown beat Rihanna, he was considered a monster and she was considered a docile victim. If Pattinson had cheated on Stewart, we would be seeing a completely different collection of tees.
