June 3, 2020

  Emma Watson has responded to a backlash over her social media posts about #BlackoutTuesday, telling fans "I see your anger, sadness and pain".

Millions of people turned the internet black in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, which has been brought back into sharp focus following the death of unarmed black man George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis last week.

 

But the Harry Potter star has been accused of prioritising the way her Instagram looks after posting three black squares with white borders.
