Emma Watson Stalked and Harassed by Harvard Voice Jerks
Ivy Leaguer Emma Watson, a freshman at Brown, was stalked and harassed by more than a few jerks hailing from rival Ivy League Harvard. Watson was in Cambridge for a Harvard v. Brown game where she appeared "quite shaken" as she was flanked by body guards according to Page Six. The stalking and harassment was coordinated by the Harvard Voice, the school's student magazine. The plan was to draw as much attention to the starlet as possible in hopes to get her riled up.
Before the game, a blog post on the mag's Web site said: "We will be Live-Tweetin' the game and possibly stalking Emma Watson, so keep your eyes peeled for that, too!" A succession of tweets posted on the Voice's Twitter account during the game followed, including, "Let's go Hermione! Lolz," a reference to Watson's character in "Harry Potter." It went on, "In enemy territory. Lookin for a certain witch," and, "WATSON FOUND. i repeat WATSON FOUND."
Following the game, which Harvard won 24-21, the magazine posted a photo of Watson on their website and called the stalking campaign a "success."
The Voice eventually attached an editor's note to its post of Watson's photo, saying, "There seems to be much ado about nothing over this photo and liveblog. Understand that these live tweets were made to be intentionally outrageous and overblown."
You would think that with the audacity of such a stalking stunt The Voice would be, at least, fairly legitimate but after perusing their website it's pretty clear that these kids are nothing more than nouveau riche scum with enough cash to throw around that actual talent isn't a necessity for working for the publication.
