Actress and friend of the late Alan Rickman, who died Thursday, posted a quote from Rickman on her Twitter account in remembrance of her friend, and boy are some men really upset about it.

Rickman did actually say this, so he is openly in support of feminism, but, of course, people quickly accused Watson of exploiting his death.
So @EmWatson using Alan Rickman’s death to further her agenda. Why not surprised? Fucking classless bitch.

I love you Emma Watson but don’t use his death to push your feminist agenda. No better than democratic politicians https://t.co/mqSQgkDDCx

What fantastic irony these men are displaying in highlighting the importance of Rickman’s quote and why we do in fact need feminism.
