Daniel Radcliffe Lashes Out At JK Rowling Over Her Tweets
Harry Potter star actor, Daniel Radcliffe was not happy to see J K Rowling’s alleged transphobic tweets which she posted a few days ago over transgender people. The 30 -year-old actor felt it was necessary to raise his voice against Rowling, whom people are blaming, for posting insensitive tweets against transgender women. A couple of days ago, Rowling felt the need to comment on an article titled ‘Creating a more equal post-COVID-19 world for people who menstruate‘. The world-famous author of young adult books Harry Potter ridiculed the title of the article and jokingly asked the fans to help her form a word for ‘people’ who menstruate.
Daniel Radcliffe Apologizes To Fans Over The Tweets
Here is what J K Rowling said in a response to the article’s title:
‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?

“‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”
Here is what Daniel Radcliffe said in response:
“To all the people who now feel that their experience of the books has been tarnished or diminished, I am deeply sorry for the pain these comments have caused you. Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I. I realize that certain press outlets will probably want to paint this as in-fighting between JK Rowling and myself, but that is really not what this is about, nor is it what’s important right now.”
Danielle Radcliffe wrote a blog over his thoughts on Rowling’s comments. Someone in the comments under the author’s original tweet mentioned that since the suicide rates of trans people are so high, by giving them as small as acceptance in the society, we can make the world a lot better for them. Radcliffe’s blog on The Trevor Project website is on a non-profit organization aimed at preventing suicide efforts amongst the LGBTQ+ community.
