JK Rowling Reps Say Her Liking of a Transphobic Tweet was a "Middle-Aged Moment"




After receiving criticism for liking a tweet calling trans women "men in dresses" in response to controversy surrounding trans activism in the UK Labour Party, JK Rowling's representatives have made a statement.

According to the spokesperson, "J.K. Rowling had a clumsy and middle-aged moment and this is not the first time she has favorited by holding her phone incorrectly."

She received significant backlash online for liking the tweet. However she also received some statements of support, such as "excellent news, hopefully young female Harry Potter fans might be taking note of her views on this."
