Internet trolls on the site which hosted naked celebrity photos have threatened film star Emma Watson just hours after she addressed the United Nations on gender equality.

A web page entitled Emma You Are Next, featuring an image of the Harry Potter star next to a countdown, was created by a user of image-sharing website 4chan, on which lewd photos of celebrities including actress Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate Upton were posted last month.

It came hours after Watson (24), a Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women, launched the HeForShe campaign in a speech at the world body in which she appealed to men to speak out for equality.

The controversial web page set its timer to end at midnight on Friday.
