Furious Fans Feel Betrayed by 'Twilight' Promotion

Scores of angry parents and teens wanting to see "Edward" from the movie "Twilight" at Orland Square Mall are out of luck. On Wednesday morning, people showed up to purchase a $30 "Twilight Tour" T-shirt and get a wristband that guarantees access to a signing by the actor. According to the guidelines laid out for the event on the Web site Hot Topic, purchases had to be made in person Wednesday and the first 500 people would have access to the actor. The problem was that the Web site instructed fans to line up at 5 a.m. Wednesday, with wristbands to be handed out at 7:30 a.m. But according to one family who traveled from Michigan, the wristbands were gone by 2 a.m.
