There’s only one thing more dramatic than a feud between big name celebs: a feud between the FANS of big name celebs.
There are some feuds we can see coming from a mile off: Taylor Swift and Kanye West. Or Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
But this latest celebrity drama has us a little confused, because…well, it just makes no sense.
You see, Beyoncé’s fans are taking aim at Emma Watson.
It’s feminism vs. feminism and…it’s really not helping anyone at all.
It all started when Emma Watson posed without a bra for Vanity Fair. When critics took aim at the Beauty and the Beast star, she hit back by saying feminism shouldn’t be used to bring other women down.
“[Feminism] is about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality,” she told BBC News when asked to respond to the controversy over the photos.
Maturing from Hermione to Belle in @beautyandthebeast is a true coming-of-age story for @EmmaWatson: “I couldn’t care less if I won an Oscar or not if the movie didn’t say something that I felt was important for people to hear.” Read the full cover story at the link in bio.

“I really don’t know what my tits have to do with it. It’s very confusing.”
Now, Beyoncé fans have branded the 26-year-old actress a hypocrite.
LISTEN: Are you a basic bitch? What does it mean? And is it offensive or funny?
Why? It seems three years ago, in a 2014 interview with Wonderland Magazine, Emma took issue with the particular brand of feminism Beyoncé portrayed in her 2013 visual album.
“As I was watching [the videos] I felt very conflicted, I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her,” Emma said.
Queen Bey fans have begun to flood Emma’s Instagram account with bee emojis.
They've also expressed their annoyance on Twitter:
Emma Watson isn't a hypocrite b/c she's a feminist and shows her breasts, she's a hypocrite b/c she criticized Beyoncé for the same thing

Neither party has responded to the drama...probably because they're both too busy kicking the patriarchy's butt.
