As we reported, Emma Watson mourned the loss of her Harry Potter co-star Alan Rickman by posting a photo of him on Twitter with his quote, “There is nothing wrong with a man being a feminist, I think it is to our mutual advantage.”
Unfortunately, many felt the 25-year-old’s post was taking advantage of Rickman’s death by forwarding her agenda!
In case you didn’t know, the British actress is a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador who helped launch the campaign HeForShe, which asks men to advocate gender equality.
Some disgruntled comments include :
On the flipside, we completely disagree!
We believe Watson was simply commemorating the 69-year-old’s progressive beliefs, and was NOT trying to make any kind of feminist statement.
The Internet is one crazy place.
