You may have heard that JK Rowling crashed the Pottermore website by releasing a new short story. To which Emma Watson replied (in my imagination), “Oh, you crashed your little wizard fan site? That’s cute. I JUST CRASHED THE WHOLE F*CKING UNITED NATIONS.” Yes, that’s probably exactly what she said.
Emma Watson has been appointed as a UN Women as a Goodwill Ambassador (along with Nicole Kidman), where she’ll focus on “empowerment of young women and will serve as an advocate for UN Women’s HeForShe campaign.” Watson announced the news on Twitter:
Going to be working for the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and The Empowerment of Women (!!!) http://t.co/9ABpKSrNCb— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) July 7, 2014
Those little tweets drove so much traffic to the UN Women’s website that it crashed.
The exciting announcement of @EmWatson's appointment as our Goodwill Ambassador crashed our website! We apologize &hope to be back up soon.— UN Women (@UN_Women) July 8, 2014
Next up: Daniel Radcliffe will crash Craigslist by putting an old sofa up for sale, thereby completing the Harry Potter Internet Takedown of 2014.
