Emma Watson May Not Have Published That Palestine Post After All. But She’s Still Responsible

Following yesterday’s post condemning actress Emma Watson for her “solidarity with Palestine” Instagram post, it has emerged that perhaps she was not the person in control of her Instagram account at the time.

At the top of it is written “Emma’s official Instagram has been taken over by an anonymous Feminist Collective”:

According to one user on an Emma Watson forum, this “takeover”

It’s temporary, for COP26. Emma has done this kind of takeover on an account a few years ago. They get to post some stuff related to that cause (usually pre-arranged content) for the duration of the event.

And the Guardian confirms that during Cop26 in Glasgow last year, Watson gave climate activists access to her Instagram account.

But whether or not Watson herself published the post is not that important. The fact is she allowed it to be disseminated to her 64 million followers, and she did not respond to the ensuing huge backlash. She is essentially condoning the message. And let’s face it, she probably agrees with it, given her support of other “trendy” and woke causes.

Imagine for a second that this “anonymous Feminist Collective” posted something against Black people or even against Muslims. Do you think for a second that Watson would remain silent like she is now?

Meanwhile, this response to the post by Israel-haters is very telling:

They are going after Harry Potter author JK Rowling, ostensibly for her antisemitic depiction of Goblins. Methinks it has more to do with her views deemed “anti-trans”, as well as those that Israel-haters and antisemites cannot live with
