‘I wasn’t bul­lied at univer­sity’

Tor­nado-hit area vis­ited by Obama

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - COMMENT -

EMMA Wat­son, who plays Hermione i n the Harry Pot­ter films, has de­nied re­ports that she was bul­lied out of a US univer­sity.

Brown Univer­sity in the state of Rhode Is­land has not com­mented on me­dia re­ports cit­ing an anony­mous “in­sider” who claimed Emma was bul­lied out of the in­sti­tu­tion.

Emma, pic­tured, wrote on her web­site: “I have never been bul­lied in my life and cer­tainly never at Brown.”

The ac­tress re­cently an­nounced she was tak­ing time out from her lib­eral arts stud­ies to fo­cus on her movie ca­reer. BARACK Obama ex­pressed his shock as he saw the dev­as­tat­ing re­sults of Amer­ica’s dead­li­est tor­nado disas­ter in al­most 80 years.

The death toll from the storms has reached 337 across seven states, in­clud­ing 238 in Alabama, mak­ing it the dead­li­est US tor­nado out­break since March 1932.

It was thought that thou­sands more peo­ple were in­jured in the disas­ter and as many as a mil­lion homes and busi­nesses in Alabama re­mained with­out power.

The scale of the disas­ter shocked Pres­i­dent Obama when he ar­rived in the state.

“I’ve never seen dev­as­ta­tion like this,” he said.
