BAFTAs hot Rebel Wilson announced Emma, and said: ‘Here to present the next award is Emma Watson. She calls herself a feminist, but we all know she’s a witch.’

Appearing to counter JK’s stance on transgender women, Emma then emphasised: ‘I’m here for ALL the witches!’ 

Following the ceremony, Emma looked sensational in her second look of the night as she donned a black lace sheer top with a plunging neckline.

The film star paired it with a black blazer and matching trousers while she added height to her frame with a pair of platform boots.

A third chimed in to add: ‘was that a jibe by emma watson at jk rowling? what a QUEEEEENNN’.

Rebel took aim at JK earlier in the night, as she joked about her recent weight loss.

Referring to a picture of her at the 2020 ceremony that appeared on screen, she quipped: ‘That was me two years ago and since then I’ve done quite a transformation – I hope JK Rowling still approves.’ 

Dig: Viewers at home saw the comment as a jibe at the Harry Potter creator, and took to Twitter to praise the actress (pictured on the red carpet) 

Other viewers though criticised Emma and BAFTA host Rebel, for bowing to the ‘woke mob’ by using the prime time show on BBC1 to lay into Rowling.

Watson is best known for her role as Hermione Grainger in the film adaptations of Rowling’s books that has made reputedly her £65million ($85m). 

One viewer tweeted: ‘She should count her lucky stars JK Rowling stuck with her. She owes her a heck of a lot, she needs to stop biting the hand that feeds’. Another wrote: ‘Emma Watson, a woman, the feminist that can’t define what a woman is? The one that is famous because of JK?’   

The jabs come after JK’s statements on transgender issues were branded transphobic by some fans.

The controversy surrounding her began after she tweeted about biological sex leading to backlash and a subsequent ‘cancellation’ from the trans community.

Ouch: One wrote: ”I’m here for all the women’. Sly ‘lil dig at JK Rowling there, Emma Watson?’ 

In June 2020, she took to Twitter to criticise an opinion piece that used the term ‘people who menstruate’ instead of women. She then continued with a thread discussing biological sex. 

She later clarified that she respects ‘every trans person’s rights to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them,’ and went on to say she would march ‘if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans.

‘At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female,’ she said, the Associated Press reported at the time. ‘I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.’

Then, in September 2020, she faced renewed calls of transphobia after it was revealed the the villain in her latest book, Troubled Blood – written under Rowling’s pseudonym Robert Galbraith – is a male serial killer who dresses as a woman to slay his victims.
