Emma Watson, the beloved British actress best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, was recently the target of a nude photo scandal. On March 15th, purported nude photos of Watson began circulating online, reportedly taken from her iCloud account. The photos were quickly removed from the internet by the actress’ team, and it was reported that the hack was part of a larger blackmail attempt against Watson. The source of the hacking is unknown, but there are suspicions that it was the work of a group of online trolls who have a history of targeting public figures. Watson, who is an advocate for gender equality, released a statement condemning the leak and demanding that those responsible face justice. She also stated that she was determined to take legal action to ensure that those responsible would be held accountable. In response, a petition was started in support of her, demanding that the hackers be brought to justice. The online community has rallied around Watson, offering her their support and commending her for speaking out against those who would threaten her privacy.
