Other Harry Potter cast members condemned Rowling’s transphobia. Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid, stated he does not find it offensive.
J.K. Rowling eventually had to give back the Ripple of Hope award, which she was given last year by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights (RFKHR) group. Kerry Kennedy, who is the head of the organization, criticized Rowling’s points of view on Trans people. After Rowling’s anti-LGBTQ tweets and claims, the author and philanthropist has been highly criticized.
Scotland’s justice secretary, Humza Yousaf stated that J.K. Rowling wouldn’t be brought to trial for her explosive social media posts about trans people under a new hate crime bill.
Her recent tweets about transgender people immediately caused a wave of criticism on social media. However, it did not lead to any legal consequences.
