Not so Easy being Emma Watson

So apparently Harry Potter star Emma Watson dropped out of school at Brown. I barely pay attention to this shit but I couldn't let this slide. In an interview with Vanity Fair she talked about being teased by students and shit.

From the NY Daily News:
The Brit beauty might not have magic powers, but a source close to Brown University (where Watson was enrolled from fall 2009 until this past winter) tells us the star's brainy ways may have led to her classmates' heckling – and perhaps a reason why she left the Providence, R.I., institution.

The insider says Watson didn't shy away from class participation and often would "answer something in class and get it right," calling the 21-year-old actress "really smart." Unfortunately, this brought out the sophisticated wit and cinematic expertise of her Ivy League peers.

According to the source, her classmates "would respond [to her answer] with a quote from 'Harry Potter.'" The most popular choice was "Three points for Gryffindor!" – a reference to the movie's dormitory system, and a congratulatory phrase in the films when a student got a correct answer.

And I thought the Ivy League was a bunch of nerds. Yelling out "three point for Gryffindor!" when she answers right? That is comedic genius AND tormented the hell out of her apparently. I mean don't get me wrong, I'd probably go the route of trying to bang the millionaire in class, but if you are a desperate loser you can always just make her life hell too. Either way I think this is a fine lesson about bullying.

Everyone these days is making a huge deal of bullying in schools. Well look, even semi-cute millionaire smart girls get made fun of in the Ivy League. Bullying is what we do when we feel intimidated. Or our parents beat us at home and we want to share the love.

It serves her right anyway. You are in America Emma, being a movie star here means you just run around Hollywood doing blow in bathrooms and sucking producers' dicks for movie roles. Get it right you uppity Brit whore.
