(Newser) – Contrary to what some have suggested, no one yelled “10 points for Gryffindor” when Emma Watson answered questions at Brown. Indeed, her decision to leave for the semester had “nothing to do with bullying,” she writes on her website in a note picked up by the Leaky Cauldron. “I have never been bullied in my life and certainly never at Brown. This '10 points to Gryffindor' incident never even happened.”

“I feel the need to say this because accusing Brown students of something as serious as bullying and this causing me to leave seems beyond unfair,” she continues. As for next year, “Please don't try and speculate about what I might do in September—no one can possibly know because I don't even know yet!”

I call bullshit on this one. I personally know the guy who said that, it was in a economics class where the prof called her out to answer a question. He told me about it appx year and a half ago. Epic
