Emma Watson has become an integral part of the Gen Z demography’s lives especially since most of the generation grew up alongside the Harry Potter franchise actress. Since her first appearance in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2001, Emma Watson became a resounding force among young fans for her bold personality, outspoken beliefs, feminist ideals, and socio-political activism. However, every tide with its flow also brings along the ebb.

Emma Watson’s Outspoken Voice Against JK Rowling

The actress had been among the first to speak out against the author and creator of the Harry Potter universe when JK Rowling posted a controversial tweet mocking the idea of “people who menstruate”. Rowling’s comment was not only an attack against transgender people but had also widely upset the global community who considered the author’s comments transphobic.

In June 2020, Emma Watson replied in the aftermath of the situation,

“Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told they aren’t who they say they are. I want my trans followers to know that I and so many other people around the world see you, respect you, and love you for who you are.”

The actress gradually started to gain a political platform as she became known for her active voice in denouncing anti-progressive beliefs and for standing up for women’s rights. In June 2014, she became the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, dedicating her efforts toward the empowerment of young women and serving as an advocate for UN Women’s HeForShe campaign to promote gender equality.

Emma Watson’s Criticism Doesn’t Exceed to Ezra Miller

When Ezra Miller started gaining notoriety for his global rampage and aberrant behavior, Emma Watson who considers herself one of their close friends remained suspiciously silent. The issue was not one that affected only those within the industry but resembled a continuity of events that was becoming increasingly harmful to whoever happened to cross Miller’s path.

However, Watson, who is known for her strong and unwavering feminist ideals had failed to make a stand on behalf of the numerous women who Miller had begun to violently attack, either physically, verbally, or emotionally. The absence of a statement from Watson then attracted the opinion of those among the Twitterati who had long maintained that she was only a pseudo-feminist pandering to the underlying authority of men, following her statement, “some of the best feminists I know are men.”

As Twitter becomes increasingly upset, disappointed, and consequently hostile toward the actress, her continued silence regarding her Perks of Being a Wallflower co-star draws further negative criticism and slander against her otherwise unblemished image.
