Internet Cretins Threaten to Leak Emma Watson Nudes in Retaliation for Speech

A few 4chan users are making it extremely difficult for male-kind not to be on the receiving end of some strong man-hate—that is if, in fact, the hackers threatening to release nude photos of Emma Watson are men and not simply yellowbellied trolls.

Someone who seemingly took issue with the UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador's speech on gender equality launched a website titled "Emma You Are Next," which shows a countdown timer, an image of the emotional actress during the final Harry Potter premiere, and the ominous message "Never forget, the biggest to come thus far."

Although the page only suggests a massive naked-photo leak like that which affected Jennifer Lawrence, Amber Heard, and multiple female celebrities, other posters on the online message board have expressed outright support for such an action.

"That feminist bitch Emma is going to show the world she is as much of a whore as any woman," one said. "She makes stupid feminist speeches at UN, and now her nudes will be online, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH," wrote another.

So what if her nude photos are online? If we know anything, it's that women's bodies shouldn't be a source of humiliation, that there's a special place in the legal system for misogynistic thieves, and that, when this is over, Emma Watson certainly won't be the one in tears.
