Harry Potter author JK Rowling shares apologetic tweet after being accused of transphobia


Harry Potter author JK Rowling shared an apology tweet sent to her after she was accused of transphobia.

The author has been widely criticized by LGBTQ + activists for his remarks on transgender people, considered transphobic.

Rowling has been involved in social media clashes on several occasions, having previously disputed an article about “menstruating” last year.

Now she has responded, sharing the apology a former reviewer sent her.

The anonymous follower told JK: “I owe you an apology because I thought you were transphobic, but then I looked up and saw that you only stand up for women, so sorry Jo, you still have been so wonderful and brave. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and an amazing 2022. “

A delighted JK replied, “Thank you, wonderful person (I purposely hid your name, because … well we all know why). It was a lovely Christmas present in advance and I also wish you a fantastic year 2022. “

The author had previously sparked controversy by posting his social networks: “If sex is not real, there is no attraction to the same sex. If sex is not real, lived reality of women in the world is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex takes away the ability for many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It is not hate to tell the truth .

“The idea that women like me, who have empathized with trans people for decades, feel close because they are vulnerable in the same way as women – that is, male violence – “hate” trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences – is nonsense. “

JK’s latest post comes as Quidditch organizations have announced that they will be changing the name of the sport to “distance themselves” from the author’s point of view.
