Biggest Pop Culture Controversies: Harry Potter vs. Twilight


Every Monday, thanks to our sponsor Oreo Cakesters, we bring you pop culture controversies. We’ve pitted TV comedies (Friends vs Seinfeld) and actresses (Aniston vs Jolie) against each other. Up this week: Vampires vs Sorcerers.

Few would disagree that Reading Is Fundamental, but the last few years have seen quite the battle emerge for the hearts of bookwormish teens. On one side, you have the Twi-Hards, whose slavish devotion to Bella, Edward, Jacob and the other principles in the Twilight series have generated billions of dollars in sales at bookstores, movie theaters and Hot Topic outlets nationwide. On the other, Potterheads remain fiercely loyal to the 2007 graduating class of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and assert that J.K. Rowling’s seven-part series reigns supreme over Stephenie Meyers’s four novel ode to teenage abstinence.

So, what stirs up your desire to put down the remote for a few minutes? Vampires or sorcerers? Shirtless Daniel Radcliffe or shirtless Taylor Lautner? The luxuriously messy brown locks of R. Pattz or the ginger charms of Ron Weasley? Let your voice be heard below!
