Emma Watson Appeared On The Cover Of Vanity Fair Braless And Twitter Is Losing Its Mind

Emma Watson Vanity Fair Cover

The live-action remake for the absolutely timeless story that is Beauty and the Beast is set to open in cinemas quite soon (March 17, 2017) and this certain actress you may have heard of called Emma Watson is taking the star role as Belle.

The 26-year-old actress who rose to fame with the Harry Potter series is apparently being called out as a hypocrite, due to the Vanity Fair cover that she posed for.

The whole of Twitter is questioning how much of a feminist she actually is, because she posed for the cover of Vanity Fair braless in a Burberry shrug.

According to Twitter, this apparently means she can no longer be a feminist.

Granted the headline, while clever, is a little cringy, but it really got Twitter all in a tizzy.

Some people took this as an opportunity to school their followers on feminism. I’m sure they really wanted to know.

@JuliaHB1 Feminism is about giving women FREE CHOICE. They can cover up or expose their bodies as they want. You’ve missed the point

Some said this debate highlighted the need for feminism.

Someone pointed out that the whole bra thing was a starting point decades ago

Two days ago, Emma Watson spoke her mind for Reuters:

“It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is,” she said. “Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality. I really don’t know what my t—s have to do with it.”

She continued, “I’m confused. Most people are confused. No, I’m just always just quietly stunned.”

What do you think? Was she being hypocritical on purpose or are all these people overreacting (the latter seems more likely)
