Emma Watson responded to criticism of her ‘Blackout Tuesday’ posts.
Yesterday Emma Watson, was very harshly criticized on social networks, the actress who is known for her altruism and being a leader in the fight for women’s rights, joined the ‘Blackout Tuesday’ published on Instagram three images in Black color with a white frame, which users of this platform did not like at all.
The annoyance arose from the blank frames and because Watson only placed in the description of his photos some hashtags and no more information on the subject, the name of the actress who gave life to ‘Hermione Granger’ became a trend on different platforms. social.
Emma Watson decided to respond to all of those comments and shared other posts, the first being a work of art created by one of her close sea friends, Dr. Fahamu Pecou. Emma wrote in the post:

I was holding off posting until #blackouttuesday ended in the UK. The Artwork of my brilliant dear friend @fahamupecou “White Lies, Subtleties, Micro-Aggressions, and Other Choking Hazards” B R O K E N O P E N (poem + text from the series BLACK MATTER LIVES) by Dr Fahamu Pecou broken broke and hoping broke in, hoping broke. end. hoping… bro! kin hopin’! broken… hopin. broken. open. broken open! (Break) “We can not be broken. We do not break. For too long we’ve been afraid that their violence would end us. But we are still here. Some they took, but they’ve all come back. They never truly left. We never truly leave. Like the police and other systems they’ve weaponized against us, the names of those they tried to silence go off in their ears like nuclear bombs. Names that swell in their throats and linger until they can no longer breathe. So let us haunt their dreams and their waking moments alike. Say their names: Ahmaud Arbery. Breonna Taylor. George Floyd. Let them see us. Let them hear us. No friends, we have nothing to fear. An army of Egungun warriors walk amongst us. They have tried, and for centuries they have failed to violate us… to silence us. This is not breaking. This is opening. The cracks are windows. The holes are doors. Shine your light through.” – Dr. Fahamu Pecou Say their names #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor #GeorgeFloyd
