After Emma Watson hit back at critics questioning her feminism because of racy underboob shoots in Vanity Fair, the actress is now being slammed as a hypocrite by Beyonce fans.

Watson's comments about Beyonce's self-titled album from a 2014 interview in Wonderland Magazine resurfaced online on Sunday.

“As I was watching it, I felt very conflicted," Watson told the publication. "I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that, on the one hand, she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male — such a male, voyeuristic experience of her.”

The Beyhive was buzzing with cries of hypocrisy over what they deemed contradictory remarks from Watson during a BBC interview that was published Saturday in which she defended the VF spread.

"Feminism is about giving women choice," the actress told BBC News during an interview about her "Beauty and the Beast" role. "It's about equality. It's not ... I really don't know what my tits have to do with it. It's very confusing."

"Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It's about freedom, it's about liberation," she added.

Watson first came under fire on Thursday for the VF shoot and was called a bad feminist for showing off her body.

But, as many users on Twitter have pointed out, if Watson claims that feminism is about freedom and liberation, how can she call out Beyoncé for representing feminism the way that she wants to?

Many are also calling out Watson for her hipocracy on the topic, claiming this to be a true condition of "white feminism" wherein women of color are heavily criticized for the way they represent feminism, while white women are defended for the way they choose to represent it.
