Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling complained that transactivists leaked her home address to the Internet and now she receives “death threats I could paper the house with them”
The conflict between J.K. Rowling and transgender community activists continues, and the writer announced new details on her Twitter.
Joanne published several posts where she said that she began to receive a large number of threats after the publication on the Internet of a photo of her house, which was taken by activists.
“Last Friday, my family’s address was posted on Twitter by three activist actors who took pictures of themselves in front of our house, carefully positioning themselves to ensure that our address was visible. 1/8”
Recall that it became known that the author of J.K. Rowling will not be invited to the Harry Potter reunion in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first part of the film because of Rowling’s comment.
The scandal came when Rowling commented on the “people who menstruate” column and tweeted that anyone who menstruates is a woman.
This comment by Joanne caused a wave of discontent and aggression and the writer was accused of transphobia, so even some actors from “Harry Potter” decided to “distance” from Rowling.
A new event in this situation was that several trans-community activists took pictures near her house, so that a specific address was clearly visible, and published these photos on the network.
“I’ve now received so many death threats I could paper the house with them, and I haven’t stopped speaking out. Perhaps – and I’m just throwing this out there – the best way to prove your movement isn’t a threat to women, is to stop stalking, harassing and threatening us. 8/X”
A discussion unfolded in the comments. Many users of the social network did not take the writer’s complaint seriously, noting that she exaggerated the problem, since her address is not a secret and can be found in many sources on the Internet.
However, many of Rowling’s subscribers supported her, noting that such behavior of activists is unacceptable.
As always, there was a place for a short joke! Someone supported Rowling with a reference to her book, which the writer retweeted.
To my fellow activists, who are planning to peacefully intimidate JK Rowling by gathering outside her house…
Here’s the address again:
Platform 9 ¾ , Kings Cross Station. (To enter, run really fast, head first, at the concrete wall between Platform’s 9 and 10.)
