J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling may try to put out that she’s supportive of the LGBT community, but she’s shown she clearly has a problem with transgender people.

The Harry Potter author is facing criticism for following “self-professed transphobe” Magdalen Berns on Twitter and supporting anti-trans sentiments.

While following someone on Twitter can be completely harmless in wanting to stay up-to-date about the world around you, Rowling isn’t doing that.

She previously liked a tweet stating transgender women are “men in dresses” which a representative clumsily tried to cover up.

“I’m afraid JK Rowling had a clumsy and middle-aged moment and this is not the first time she has favourited by holding her phone incorrectly.”

Rowling is also following numerous other anti-trans accounts on Twitter which some people have taken notice of. One user scanned through her list of roughly 700 followers and made a detailed list of the accounts.

Her views have certainly hurt a number of her fans who are sharing their views online. Take a look below for some of their reactions.
