Emma Watson Threw “Subtle Shade” at JK Rowling at The BAFTAs

Harry Potter author, JK Rowling, has been recently critized for her controversial views on transgender people.

Emma Watson apparently threw subtle shadeeat JK Rowling at the BAFTAs last night.

As host Rebel Wilson introduced the Harry Potter star to the stage, she said: “Here to present the next award Is Emma Watson. She calls herself a feminist, but we all know she’s a witch.”

Watson then emphasised: “I’m here for ALL the witches!”



One viewer posted a clip of the moment on Twitter, writing: “Emma Watson destroying JK.”

Earlier in the night, Rebel Wilson had made a dig at Rowling:

The actress and comedian who, over the last year, has been documenting her weight loss journey on Instagram, addressed the fact that she is “looking different” and that she has had a “transformation”, quipping: “I hope JK Rowling still approves.”

Wilson made a reference to Rowling’s controversial views on transgender people.

In a recent thread criticising the Labour Party’s stance on gender and equality, the Harry Potter novelist wrote: “Apparently, under a Labour government, today will become We Who Must Not Be Named Day.”
