Media reports earlier this month cited an anonymous Brown "insider" claimed Watson was "bullied out" of the prominent Providence Rhode Island university.
There was a statement posted on Watson's website Friday indicating that she was taking a semester off from school this spring and it had absolutely "nothing to do with bullying." Watson stated that she was never bullied at Brown or anywhere else.
Watson has been made famous by her role as Hermione Granger in the popular "Harry Potter" movies. She proclaimed that she was not certain what her plans are for the fall semester, her third year at the school. She says that, like many other Brown students, she is thinking about studying abroad.
Information that is cited anonymously is not always accurate. This is a good example of taking pause to examine the facts before jumping to conclusions. If Ms. Watson was indeed bullied, we hope she has not suffered the tremendous emotional stress that comes with being a victim of bullying. Anonymity is important in society. Disclosure of private or personal matters relating to a highly visible superstars are common. Defamation and hearsay are also common. However, as they say- "where there is smoke there is fire." Silent Sender believes it is everyone's inherent right to anonymous speech. The ability to send an anonymous message or reveal information anonymously should always be balanced with careful thought before taking action.
