Emma Watson’s HeForShe speech about the importance of the feminist struggle and Leonardo DiCaprio’s speech about climate change have both been hot topics in the last few days. Two moviestars addressing the UN about important causes: they’re really not that different events.
But this is how The Daily Mail chose to report on them:
"Emma Watson said stuff about stuff about women and equality and stuff, BUT LOOK HOW PRETTY SHE IS! LOOK! SHE HAS A DRESS!"
"Feeling unsure and lost is part of your path. Don’t avoid it. See what those feelings are showing you and use it. Take a breath. You’ll be okay. Even if you don’t feel okay all the time."

"It’s so easy to forget that the person you’re looking at is a human being. We’re all just as complex, misunderstood and real as each other. So I encourage you to try and be more aware of when you’re being very judgmental. And try to remember that we’re all just human fucking beings, trying to be happy and trying to find a purpose in the world. Our society has just become this rude, shitty, detached bunch of people. It’s so hard to find empathy these days. Especially online, oh forget about online."
