HBO is now under fire from enraged and unhinged leftists for giving ‘Harry Potter’ author J.K. Rowling a platform they allege is ‘undeserved.’
The network is currently working on a series based on ‘Harry Potter’ which will reportedly benefit Rowling.
Leftists have long considered Rowling a bigot for her principled refusal to accept insane transgender ideology.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“It wasn’t until last summer that Rowling really made her anti-transgender feelings clear, when she released a lengthy screed on her website outlining her ‘fears’ of ‘trans activism.’ For a woman who made billions using the written word, it was a shockingly unreadable piece, full of pseudoscientific nonsense to dress up undeniable bigotry,” wrote Bundel. “It was also a pivot sure to shock her audience. The ‘Harry Potter’ series was beloved by readers because it preached messages of tolerance and inclusivity. The evil Voldemort and his followers are characterized as believing in wizarding purity, an unsubtle stand-in for eugenics. And yet, here was the woman credited with turning a whole generation of readers into progressives, suddenly, and loudly, declaring that intolerance was sometimes acceptable. Worse, Rowling hasn’t let it go, circling back every few weeks to remind everyone that she is still dedicated to the transphobic cause.”
The temperature on social media was not much cooler, with multiple trolls vowing to boycott the product.
Harry Potter was the biggest part of my childhood and if it weren’t for the fact that JK Rowling is transphobic asshole I would be so excited for this but really…..who’s even going to watch this now? What’s the point? https://t.co/h5ImGzGcfc

JK Rowling will profit from any and all new Harry Potter-related media. If you spend money consuming that media, you are giving JK Rowling money. That’s it. That’s the tweet.
