Emma Watson Shamed Beyoncé For Showing Her Body in 2014

Ever since people freaked out that Emma Watson flashed a bit of boob in a magazine, Emma’s been outraged, calling herself the kind of feminist who doesn’t know “what my tits have to do with it.”

But curiously enough, back in 2014, she publicly questioned whether Beyoncé could be a feminist because she’d chosen to show off her body on film.

Don’t you just love it when the past comes back to bite a self-righteous celebrity in the butt?

Last week, Emma Watson was photographed for Vanity Fair wearing a little crocheted top that did not cover all of her cleavage.

Some people took this as an opportunity to drag her through the mud because they didn’t think feminists could also be down for showing bits of tits in print.

For instance, Julia-Hartley Brewer, a British radio personality, wrote, “Feminism, feminism…gender wage gap…why oh why am I not taken seriously…feminism…oh and here are my (t*ts)!”

Needless to say, feminist Emma Watson was pissed.

“It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is.” Emma Watson told Reuters in response. “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 tits have to do with it. It’s very confusing.”

And it’s easy to nod your head and give Emma all the brownie points, until you get reminded she basically said the same thing her haters are saying now to Beyoncé.

MTV News writer Ira Madison III posted this quote of Emma Watson’s 2014 Interview with Wonderland Magazine.

“As i was watching [Beyoncé’s visual album] I felt very conflicted, I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but the the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her.”

And we weren’t the only ones to get the message loud and clear.

So yeah, feel bad for Emma Watson is you really want to, but don’t fall over yourself defending her.
