Emma Watson isn’t just our favourite Harry Potter heroine. She’s a major role model for young men and women all around the world and the list of achievements she has to her name are endless.
Emma has been doing all she can and using every ounce of her intelligence and compassion to fight for global equality alongside the UN, as the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador.
She isn’t some celebrity who’s using every bit of publicity to further herself… she’s using her status, her knowledge and her reputation to further the entire global population.
But one major newspaper decided to completely rip her apart and profess that she’s nothing but a fake.
The Sun published a column recently, by Rod Liddle, which went viral as soon as it was reposted on social media; first on Twitter by a journalist, and then on a popular Facebook page.
The article describes Emma’s efforts for global equality as “rigid and whining, leftie, PC crap,” saying that people have been “stupid enough” to give her a chance to express opinions she knows nothing of.
Sorry, since when were gender and equality issues ever left-wing “crap”?!
Rod has obviously not done his research to see just how much Emma knows of these serious topics.
Rod even goes as low to say, “I suppose they got Emma in because Angelina Jolie is a bit tied up with other stuff at the moment.”
As soon as it caught the public’s attention, the wrath of the good citizens of the world followed…
The quest for global equality in all realms, whether it be gender, race or sexual preference, isn’t something we should be shooting down.
Emma’s fighting for all of us.
Wise up, Rod.
