Hacker Threatens To Post Nude Photos Of Harry Potter Star Emma Watson

Threat follows her speech to U.N. on the importance of feminism and gender equality

After delivering an impassioned speech on the importance of feminism and gender equality to the U.N. this weekend, Harry Potter star Emma Watson now appears to be the next target of a celebrity nude photo hacker.

Business Insider reports

A 4chan user has created an ominous countdown site that hints at the release of leaked naked photographs of the actress Emma Watson in just over four days. 

"Emma You Are Next" features a photograph of Emma Watson wiping away a tear, as well as a countdown timer, the 4chan logo, and a message that reads "Never forget, the biggest to come thus far."

It is never explicitly stated what the site is counting down to, but it follows a wave of new leaked photographs posted on 4chan of Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, and other stars who were included on the original list of celebrities affected by the iCloud hack.

Earlier this summer, Watson was named a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador for women and is now helping promote the “HeForShe” campaign, an organization committed to combating the notion that feminism is “man-hating” by “galvanizing” the support of one billion men and boys to be advocates for ending gender inequalities and violence against women. In her remarks, Watson brought up being “sexualized” by men at an early age and said that choosing feminism was an easy decision based on her personal experiences and upbringing.
