Great news for Emma Watson: there will be no nudes of her released Friday as one site was threatening earlier this week after her U.N. speech about feminism and gender equality.

In fact, the site emmayouarenext.com was a hoax to try to shut down 4chan, where celebrities' stolen naked photos were first leaked.

The website used to display this countdown clock with a photo of the actress wiping away tears and the 4chan logo when you visited it:

It now redirects to Rantic, where they explain that they were trying to shut down 4chan with their stunt. There's even a letter to the President asking him to censor the internet:

"DEAR BARACK OBAMA,
We have been hired by celebrity publicists to bring this disgusting issue to attention. The recent 4chan celebrity nude leaks in past 2 months have been an invasion of privacy and is also clear indication that the internet NEEDS to be censored. Every Facebook like, share & Twitter mention will count as a social signature -- and will be step closer to shutting down www.4chan.org. "

We're not sure censoring the internet is the solution to this and we really hate that they dragged poor Emma Watson into this scheme.

Do you think the internet should get censored?
