Emma Watson: The Woke Celebrity
Good luck finding a more woke celebrity than Emma Watson, the “Harry Potter” alum who has become a superstar in her own right. With over 71 million followers on Instagram alone, Watson is known for her progressive messaging and dedication to social justice causes.
Standing Up for What’s Right
Watson isn’t afraid to speak out against injustice, even if it means going against the creator who made her famous. When J.K. Rowling disagreed with elements of the trans movement, Watson sided with the trans community and spoke out against Rowling’s views.
However, even Watson occasionally runs afoul of her own mob. During the George Floyd riots, Watson tried to show her support for the Black Lives Matter movement by posting three black squares on her Instagram account. But when she used a white border around them to match her account’s visual look, her fellow leftists accused her of prioritizing aesthetics over the fight against systemic racism.
Watson apologized for her mistake and promised to do better, but she’s now facing another social media backlash.
The Trouble with Brad Pitt
When fellow star Brad Pitt announced a new line of alcohol called The Gardener Gin, Watson gave him some social media love. However, her support for Pitt has sparked controversy among her followers, who are reminding her of the allegations made by his ex-wife Angelina Jolie.
Despite the backlash, Watson may be hesitant to throw Pitt under the bus. After all, she hasn’t appeared on screen in four years and doesn’t have any upcoming gigs on her IMDB.com page. Trashing a fellow actor could make that gap even longer.
Watson’s experiences show that even the most woke celebrities can make mistakes and face backlash from their own communities. However, she’s also shown that she’s willing to learn from her mistakes and do better in the future.
- Use social media to promote causes you believe in
- Be mindful of how your actions may be perceived by others
- Don’t be afraid to apologize and make amends
By following these lessons, Watson can continue to be a positive force for change in the world.
