So this is the end for the EDL and Tommy Robinson. And, like the end of Breaking Bad or when Take That broke up, some of his fans are taking it really hard.
Some were just furious...

Unfollowing @EDLTrobinson, was my icon at one time, but tarnished all the respect as a coward. Is it despair for freedom NOW?
@EDLTrobinson Shocking! So the last man standing against Islamist radicalism has given up and ran away. You weren't as brave as you claimed!
And some got straight to the point..
@EDLTrobinson Shite Bag!

Others were confused and frightened about what the future might hold..
@EDLTrobinson has today disappointed thousands of his supported here in UK and all over the world.
