Emma Watson stalked by rival university students at college football game
Emma Watson‘s attempts to blend into her new university lifestyle were recently thwarted by students from a rival university.
The Harry Potter star went to a college football match between Brown University and rivals Harvard – but became the victim of an organised stalking campaign.
Student newspaper the Harvard Voice posted a blog just before the match, stating they were going to hunt for the 19-year-old actress.
‘We will be Live-Tweetin’ the game and possibly stalking Emma Watson, so keep your eyes peeled for that, too!’ read the post.
During the game, a series of Twitter updates from the Voice revealed the extent of their determination to expose the star.
‘Let’s go Hermione! Lolz’ was quickly followed by, ‘In enemy territory. Lookin for a certain witch‘, and then finally, ‘WATSON FOUND. I repeat WATSON FOUND.’
Emma looked ‘quite shaken‘ by the campaign and security guards were called in to protect her from students pushing to catch a glimpse of the actress, says Page Six.
After the match, the Voice posted a picture of Emma – who also models for Burberry – on its website and said the ‘mission’ had been a ‘success’.
But when fellow Harvard students complained about the stalking, the Voice said the whole episode had been blown out of proportion and the live Tweets were ‘intentionally outrageous‘.
Do you think the Harvard students were wrong? Or should Emma expect attention from students due to her worldwide fame? Share your thoughts below!
