Wow, people get upset really quickly on the Internet, don’t they? British actress Emma Watson, of Harry Potter fame, tweet about the death of her co-star in the boy wizard movies Alan Rickman.
But what she tweeted was a quote of something that the late actor said related to feminism. To Watson, it was probably just a nice way for her to pay tribute to a colleague and friend – by sharing a quote of his that she found inspiring.
But Twitter got really angry and started accusing the actress of using the star’s death to promote her own feminist agenda. As most people know, Watson is a great supporter of gender equality and does a lot for the cause. So was tweeting one of Rickman’s pro-feminism posts after his death a selfish thing for her to do? Many people on Twitter thought so.
