Emma Watson Threatened With Release Of Nude Pics After UN Gender Equality Speech

NEW YORK (CBS SF) -- Days after Emma Watson gave a well-received speech at the UN on gender inequality, the Harry Potter actress is facing a bully of her own

The website—the same one that hacked The Cloud and revealed all those naked photos of celebrity women features a countdown clock before it says it will release nude photos of Emma.

UC Berkeley Professor Robin Lakoff says the people behind the site are "committing an act of terrorism, even though it's not the usual kind of terrorism."

She believes the timing in not coincidental, and could well be tied to Emma's gender equality speech in which she called on men to step up.

"Not only is she in her own right successful and accomplished and powerful, but now she in that role is giving a speech saying other women should have these rights as well."
