J.K. Rowling Rips ‘Harry Potter’ Stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson

JK Rowling reignited her problem with Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson on the issue of transgender identity and rights.

The author, who regularly uses her platform to espouse her transphobic views, took to X on Wednesday to comment on a new review of gender identity services for children by Britain’s National Health Service. The review states that there is “no robust evidence on the long-term outcomes of interventions aimed at managing gender-related distress.”

Rowling describe the report as “a decisive moment” and wrote, “My anger has been building all day. Children have suffered irreversible damage and thousands of people are complicit, not just doctors, but also celebrity spokespeople, diehard media, and cynical corporations.

Rowling then responded to a user on spoke in support trans people. The user added that he was “safe knowing you will forgive him.”

“Not safe, I’m afraid”, Rowling written back. “Celebrities who have rallied behind a movement to erode women’s hard-won rights and used their platforms to encourage the transition of minors can keep their excuses for traumatized detransitioners and vulnerable women dependent on single-sex spaces.”

For the record, Rupert Grint, who completes the trio of Harry Potter leads, also spoke out in favor of trans people. “I stand firmly with the trans community and echo the sentiments expressed by many of my peers,” he wrote in 2020. “Trans women are women. Trans men are men.
