Watch Emma Watson Dedicate An Award To Her Dead Hamster

Emma Watson
RIP Little Hamster

When Emma Watson received the Brittania Award for British Artist of the Year, she chose a very special friend to dedicate the award to — her long lost pet hamster Millie, who died during the filming of “Harry Potter.” The crew even built Millie a tiny coffin! RIP Millie!

Teenage Boy Writes Touching Letter About Emma Watson’s Gender Equality Speech

Emma Watson

Emma Watson’s speech on gender equality at the UN may have sparked a seriously bizarre marketing stunt/prank on 4Chan/stupid hoax, but it also educated countless young people and did a massive amount of good. One of those young people, 15-year-old Ed Holtom, loved her speech so much that he wrote into UK’s Telegraph to express his support. In his letter, he worries that some of the other boys at his school have a more hostile view towards feminism, and he makes a call to action for other young people to reject gender stereotypes. Holtom told BuzzFeed, “I was inspired by Emma Watson’s speech, but also by Beyoncé’s philosophy of female empowerment. I didn’t expect anyone to take an interest in it, but I’m so glad people agree with me!” Is this kid awesome or what? The letter that appears in the Telegraph was shortened a bit, but he provided BuzzFeed with the full version, which you can read after the jump!

The Emma Watson Nudes Threat Was A Hoax, And Also F**k Rantic

emma-watson-052214

They said it couldn’t be done, and I believed them: Fake internet marketing company Rantic made themselves look worse than 4chan trolls.

It turns out the trolls aren’t behind the Emma Watson nude photo leak threat. I mean, it speaks volumes that no one would put it past them to hear a speech as dignified and overall tame as Emma Watson’s address to the UN on gender equality and decide that she’s a hateful “feminazi” monster who deserves to be threatened into silence, but it turns out that even 4chan aren’t exactly the absolute shoe-scrapings of the internet – inasmuch as they weren’t the originators of the idea, anyway, just the people who glommed on and thought it was a reasonable idea.

Hackers Threaten To Release Nude Photos Of Emma Watson After Her Feminist Speech At The UN

Emma Watson TLN
  • Emma Watson may be the latest celebrity to have nude photos leaked on the Internet — in her case as retribution for a kickass speech she gave at the United Nations about feminism. 4chan, the hackers behind the nude photo leaks of Jennifer Lawrence and other female celebs, claim they have naked photos of Watson they will leak. Whether such photos actually exist is debatable, but it’s extremely scary Watson is being targeted as a “whore” simply for speaking out publicly as a feminist. Either way … stay classy, 4chan!

Watch Emma Watson Address The United Nations On Gender Equality

Watch Emma Watson Address The United Nations On Gender Equality
Feminism Is Not Anti-Men

On Saturday, Emma Watson delivered a stirring speech to the United Nations about gender inequality, addressing the stereotypes that impact and limit the rights of both men and women (while wearing a totally on point dress, I must mention). She is the UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador, and a special event was held this weekend to celebrate the launch of HeForShe, a gender equality movement. Emma has such a delicate, soft voice, and I think that’s what makes her so commanding in her own way. She compels people to lean forward in their seats and listen hard — and what she had to say was so very worth it. [The Gloss; Mashable]
