Social Media Roundup: Listen Up and Celebrate Women

Welcome back; it is once again time to see what some of the Wizarding World stars have been up to in the latest edition of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! During the past two weeks, a Harry Potter actor has hit 16 billion – yes, BILLION – views on a social media platform, mothers and women were celebrated, and more.

On March 8, International Women’s Day took place, with this year’s theme being “Choose to Challenge.” Whether it is challenging inequality, sexual harassment, gender bias, domestic abuse, or stereotypes, raise your hand to join in and choose to challenge. So let’s celebrate the women we know and admire in our lives, like the ones below.

Natalia Tena (Nymphadora Tonks) shared two charities, Orchid Project and Women’s Aid, that help women and children.

Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange), who just recently finished filming on the upcoming Batman movie, asked where she could trade in the one day of celebrating women for it being every day.

Adding his voice to the Say Something challenge from One for the Boys, a charity dedicated to ending the stigma around men’s health, was Harry Potter actor and podcaster James Phelps (Fred Weasley).

 

 

The #DracoTok hashtag on TikTok has reached 16 billion views! Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) thanked fans and everyone for reaching the milestone. Congratulations!

In the United Kingdom, March 14 is Mother’s Day. Some of the Wizarding World stars, like Oliver Phelps (George Weasley), Tom Felton, Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), and Sinead Matthews (Mildred), shared photos of their mums and thanked them for everything that they have done.

Tragically, on March 16, eight people, six of whom were Asian women, were killed in a mass shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States. Taking to social media and imploring people to stop racism and not be silent with the hashtag #StopAsianHate were Gemma Chan (Ya Zhou), Katie Leung (Cho Chang), and Claudia Kim (Nagini). Our condolences go out to the friends and families of those who were killed.

And who could forget the furry companions of the Wizarding World? Chris Rankin’s (Percy Weasley) dog looked quite content curled up in bed with his blanket.

 

 

So did Ron Perlman (Gnarlak) and his beautiful dog.
