“It’s about freedom”: Emma Watson nips her critics in the bud

Emma Watson is a woman. And like lots of women, she has those lumpy things that come in various shapes and sizes and decorate a woman’s chest. You know, those things that get perkier in the cold and jiggle when you run down the stairs? Boobs. A girl’s breast friend.

In her latest shoot for Vanity Fair magazine, Emma Watson showed some of her boob. Not the whole knocker, though that would be fine too, but this was just underboob. And in a shocking turn of events, certain people of the internet went batsh*t about it.

For some reason, people took issue with the fact that Emma Watson, a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN who is one of the most outspoken celebrities advocating for gender equality… had boobs? Showed her boobs? Wore a ridiculous looking and highly impractical top? Oh god, it’s just so confusing and stupid and WHO EVEN CARES?!

They’re her boobs to do what she wants with – if Emma Watson wants to knit nipple covers and wear them like tea cosies, that’s her prerogative. If she wants to guard them like a state secret, that’s cool too. If she wants to photocopy them and put them on every billboard all over the country, bras off to her.

Thankfully, there are loads of people on the internet who understand that feminism is about choice and that you can be a feminist and do whatever you fancy with your boobies.

But no one said it better than Emma herself, who defended the shoot during a press junket for her upcoming film, Beauty and the Beast.

Wow, all those haters must be feeling like real tits right now.
