Eddie Redmayne stands up for J.K. Rowling against internet “vitriol” https://t.co/L6oharQZjB— LGBTQ Nation (@lgbtqnation) September 28, 2020
Eddie Redmayne decided to throw his lot in with virulent transphobe JKR, telling Daily Fail:
- JKR was receiving alarming “vitriol” on social media and he called it “absolutely disgusting.”
- he sent her a personal note of support
- made sure to mention his "trans friends and colleagues" while saying all of this
- also says "those who harass transgender people on social media as “equally disgusting” as people who criticize Rowling" and “Similarly, there continues to be a hideous torrent of abuse towards trans people online and out in the world that is devastating” like they're in any way equal
Reminder that he played trans painter Lili Elbe in the movie The Danish Girl and was nominaed for an Oscar for it. ONTD, how will your relative force you to see the next Fantastic Beasts movie against your will?
