Harry Potter stars distance themselves

After JK Rowling attracted criticism for her transphobic remarks, Harry Potter stars publicly distanced themselves from her.

She then lashed out on X saying, «Celebs who cosied up to a movement intent on eroding women’s hard-won rights…»

«…and who used their platforms to cheer on the transitioning of minors can save their apologies for traumatised detransitioners,» Rowling stated.

JK Rowling concluded her message by addressing the «vulnerable women reliant on single sex spaces.»

These Harry Potter stars are not the only ones who have distanced themselves from JK Rowling.

Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley, has also expressed his support for the trans community.

In an interview given in 2020 to The Times, he described the issue as «sensitive,» but referred to her as his aunt two years later.

Others who have turned their backs on the author are Harry Melling, Evanna Lynch and Jason Isaacs, according to TMZ.

According to police, JK Rowling did not break the law by posting tweets criticizing Scotland’s new hate speech law and referring to transgender women as men.

The Harry Potter author opposes the law, which went into effect last week.

It prohibits hate speech based on age, disability, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Rowling is among the critics who say the legislation could be used to silence so-called “gender-critical” feminists.

In a series of posts on X, Rowling referred to several prominent trans women as men.

Misgendering could be an offense under the new law, in some circumstances.

Rowling posted, “If what I have written here qualifies as a crime under the terms of the new law, I look forward to being arrested.”

«Freedom of speech and worship are coming to an end in Scotland if the accurate description of biological sex is considered criminal,» she added.

The comments are not considered a crime

Scotland’s police stated they had received complaints, but “the comments are not considered a crime and no further action will be taken.”

The semi-autonomous government of Scotland spoke about the new legislation, known as the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Act.

It is meant to help combat hate and abuse, according to The Associated Press.

Critics, however, say it will have a chilling effect on free speech.
