Substancial parts of the wizard world distance themselves from Harry Potter author.

J. K. Rowling has tweeted in support of British researcher, Maya Forstater, who was fired over her anti-trans social media posts. Today Rowling changed many fans’ views of her own character when using the hashtags #IStandWithMaya and #ThisIsNotADrill. There has been an uproar among Harry Potter fans in the LGBTQ+ community, and Rowling's name was trending No. 1 on Twitter alongside "JK Rowling is a TERF" (trans-exclusionary radical feminist). She even put Donald Trumps' historic impeachment in the shadows.

The Harry Potter Alliance distanced itself from Rowling's tweet, and stated: "We know that trans women are women, trans men are men, non-binary people are non-binary, and that affirming and respecting peoples' gender is kind, loving and literally saves lives."

Disclamer in case somebody goes bananas over the illustration:
I found it using a major search engine. This do not mean I share or in any way endorse any of the views or opinions expressed on the website I found it on. Quite the opposite, in fact.
