the British writer JK Rowling, author of hits like the saga “Harry Potter” and the franchise “Fantastic Animals and Where to Find Them”, made an outburst on social networks this Monday, 19, about the virtual attacks he started to receive since he made a comment considered transphobic. JK Rowling posted a printout of a message in which a follower wrote: “I wish you a homemade bomb in your mailbox.” The author then commented: “To be fair, when you can’t get a woman fired, arrested, or fired by her publisher and when the cancellation only causes her book sales to soar, there’s only one way forward” .

In June last year, the author was criticized on social media for questioning the expression “people menstruate” and even actor Daniel Radcliffe took a stand on the matter. A follower asked if the death threats were related to this episode that caused her to be “canceled” and JK Rowling replied: “Yes, now hundreds of trans activists have threatened to beat me, rape, murder and bomb me”, wrote the creator of the universe of “Harry Potter” on Twitter. The writer also thanked the fans who have been supporting her. “I have to go back to my chapter now, but to all the people who sent me beautiful, kind, funny and supportive messages, thank you so much. Wish I had time to answer you all, but Strike and Robin [personagens do seu novo livro] they are at a complicated stage of their investigation, so I need to give them some clues”, concluded the Brit.
