J.K. Rowling Will Not Forgive Daniel Radcliffe And Emma Watson For Their ‘Trans’ Comments

Probably one of the most well-known authors of this generation is J.K. Rowling. Even now, one of the most read book series is her Harry Potter series.

Recently, she has made certain remarks in her personal life that some have found problematic. To find out more about what has occurred, continue reading.

When J.K. Rowling’s book series was made into a movie, it was already a global hit. But the movie series expanded equally, propelling the youthful actors who portrayed the well-known characters into global renown.

Rowling, the author of the characters that Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson brought to life on screen, seemed to have a great working relationship with both actors, who played Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, respectively. However, there may have been tension between them recently.

Rowling appears to have recently voiced her displeasure with the two performers. She authored a thread for the eagerly anticipated Cass Review on X, the former name of Twitter. Dr. Hilary Cass, a pediatrician examining gender identity services provided to kids in the UK, conducted the review. According to the results, there is a “lack of high-quality research” on how puberty blockers affect kids.

Rowling took to X after the review was published to vent her frustration about what she called “severe medical malpractice.”

“Even if you don’t feel ashamed of cheerleading for what now looks like severe medical malpractice, even if you don’t want to accept that you might have been wrong, where’s your sense of self-preservation? The bandwagon you hopped on so gladly is hurtling towards a cliff,” she wrote earlier this week.

In her posts, she continued, saying, “If I sound angry, it’s because I’m bloody angry. I read Cass this morning and my anger’s been mounting all day. Kids have been irreversibly harmed, and thousands are complicit, not just medics, but the celebrity mouthpieces, unquestioning media and cynical corporations.”

She hadn’t specifically mentioned any celebrities, but her critical comments about Emma and Dan came after one of her followers tweeted, “Just waiting for Dan and Emma to give you a very public apology … safe in the knowledge that you will forgive them.”

By replying to the tweet, the writer spoke directly to the stars in question. “Not safe, I’m afraid.” She went on, writing, “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 and vulnerable women reliant on single s** spaces.”

Radcliffe and Watson both released statements in 2020, a time when Rowling’s divisive remarks against transgender people made headlines. The whole thing began when Rowling retweeted an opinion piece in which she expressed her disapproval of the author’s choice to refer to “people who menstruate” rather than “women.”

“‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?” she tweeted.

People’s thoughts on what she had written poured into her mentions. Her implication infuriated a lot of people, who wanted to ask her to stop.

She remained steadfast in the face of intense criticism for her tweet. “If s** isn’t real, there’s no same-s** attraction. If s** isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of s** removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth.”

In response to her contentious remarks, Radcliffe wrote a piece for The Trevor Project in which he expressed his support for the transgender community and expressed regret for whatever hurt the author’s words may have caused others.

Watson also issued a statement endorsing the transgender community. “Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told they aren’t who they say they are.”

She continued, “I want my trans followers to know that I and so many other people around the world see you, respect you, and love you for who you are.”
