J.K. Rowling Gets Backlash for Transphobic Tweets Again

Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling has found herself receiving backlash on Twitter as she made tweets considered transphobic.

The author made a tweet on Saturday in response to an opinion article discussing a “more equal post-COVID-19 world for people who menstruate.”

“‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people,” Rowling wrote in response to the article. “Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”

This isn’t the first time that Rowling has made transphobic comments. In 2019, she was criticized after supporting a woman who was fired over her transphobic tweets.

Meanwhile, after people called her out, she defended her tweets by saying it isn’t hate if she’s speaking the truth.
