The former Harry Potter star quickly took legal action against website, CelebJihad, where the photos are alleged to have emerged from.
According to TMZ, the site published images of Emma wearing a see-through top without a bra, in which her ‘breasts and nipples’ were entirely revealed.
Emma’s legal team quickly got onto CelebJihad, ordering them to take down the images by proving that Emma had full rights to the images – and the nude website responded, deleting the images from the site immediately.
Speaking on the matter, Emma said:
After I gave my speech [at the UN] there was a website threatening to release naked pictures of me.
I knew it was a hoax, I knew the pictures didn’t exist, but I think a lot of people that were close to me knew gender equality was an issue but didn’t think it was that urgent, that it was a thing of the past.
And then when they saw that the minute I stood up talking about women’s rights I was immediately threatened, I think they were really shocked, my brother was particularly upset.
I was raging, it made me so angry, I was like, this is why I have to be doing this. If anything, if they were trying to put me off it, it did the opposite.
Emma has yet to comment on this alleged recent publication of her topless pictures.
