'Respect Me' Campaign ~ From LetMeSign.Com

From Kimberly Sherman at

In the wake of Twilight fan attacks upon Robert Pattinson during the filming of Remember Me in NYC and most recently, the reported cab clipping, the fan site is putting together a campaign designed to get the entire Twilight fan base, both teen and mature, to leave Robert Pattinson alone.

Dubbed “Respect Me,” the bones of the campaign read:

"We know that he is in the spotlight and everyone wants to know what is he doing or where he is, but there are ways to do so properly, and we know so many girls in the world want to know him, be near him or take pictures with him.

"He is not an OBJECT, he is a human being that NEEDS to walk, breathe, WORK or even smoke in peace!

"So, we decided to start this campaign against all that we think is not cool to Rob! He needs to be respected! You need to respect his private life!"

The site asks any fellow sites interested in participating to post a “Respect Me” banner, signifying the plight to leave Robert Pattinson alone.

"If you want to help us, just save one or many of our banners, avatars and buttons and paste it on your blog, fan site, website, live journal, fotolog, etc with a link back to Let Me Sign so the people can see this and help us to spread the word!"

This is a fantastic idea, especially in the wake of the most recent circumstances, as reported by RadarOnline:

"Rob was clipped by a cab around noon in front of the bookstore where the 23-year-old London-born actor had been inside most of the morning filming scenes.

"A team of five security guards were trying to fend off a crowd of teenage girls when Rob was leaving the bookstore.

"It was pouring rain as they tried to hustle him quickly across the busy street to the safety of his trailer. Some of the teen girls were hysterical and Rob rushed across the road. As he did so, a taxi grazed him. The cabbie slammed on his brakes as soon as he realized what had happened.

"It appeared as if the cab hit Rob in the hip. He stood there for a moment looking stunned. The bodyguard next to him checked if he was okay and then screamed at the fans: 'You see what you did, you almost killed him!'"

This is my pledge to remain a “Respect Me” site. Take the time to talk to your kids about the utmost importance in respecting others; this mayhem is the end result of those who refuse to show another human being respect, regardless of his popularity and status.

Then show your dedication by commenting and expressing your support maintaining the respect that Rob deserves!
