Emma Watson recently took to Twitter to share her 'laughing' picture, as part of the recent protest by Turkish women.


The 24-year-old British beauty sided with the ladies who started the 'laughing protest' in defiance of a Turkish deputy prime minister Bulent Arinc, who in a speech for Eid al-Fitr said that women should be "chaste" and "should not laugh in public", the Guardian reported.

Following the comment, thousands of women posted pictures of themselves where they're 'laughing out loud', in order to highlight their rights in the country.

30 minutes after Watson, who's a goodwill ambassador for UN women, and has 13.8m Twitter followers, posted her snap where she's seen outside a pavement restaurant, it was retweeted 2,400 times and favourited 4,500 times.
