No sooner had Emma Watson paid tribute to fellow actor and feminist Alan Rickman than online bullies came out to harass her.
Rickman, who starred with Watson in the "Harry Potter" movies, died following a cancer battle on Thursday.
This is how his co-star honoured him.
Rickman had repeatedly spoken on feminism throughout his career.
"I always think feminist just means common sense," he told Entertainment Weekly in 2013.
But several Twitter users took issue with Watson bringing up Rickman's comments on the day he died.
.@EmWatson oh wow, you're using someone's death to push a completely unrelated agenda. this is so, so gross.— Chloë Price (@Dekashoko) January 14, 2016
@EmWatson You knew him...i'm guessing he was your friend. You're using his memory for propaganda, please, think about it again...— Tomás Allende Conte (@TomsAllende) January 14, 2016
Wow, you're using the death of your friend to push your agenda.

For her part, Watson paid them no mind and kept posting Rickman tributes throughout the day.
One of them was written by his "Love Actually" co-star Emma Thompson, who called Rickman the "ultimate ally. In life, art and politics. I trusted him absolutely.
"He was, above all things, a rare and unique human being and we shall not see his like again."
