Rupert Grint And Emma Watson Slams J K Rowling After Her Tweets
Even though J K Rowling sent out clarification tweets to her alleged transphobic tweets, it seems like it is making no difference. After the Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe, slammed the book author, Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) also spoke out their opinion on this matter. However, it seems like Rowling had enough of the hate brigade as the author deleted her original tweet. On the other hand, Grint and Watson have become the latest in the Harry Potter cast to slam Rowling over her comments that have been the highlight this past week.
Rupert Grint and Watson Speak Out Regarding Rowling’s Tweets
Rowling’s remarks on trans people did not fare well against the opinions of Rupert Grint and a few other celebrities. Noma Dumezweni is one of them. However, for Grint, he said:
“I firmly stand with the trans community and echo the sentiments expressed by many of my peers. Trans women are women. Trans men are men. We should all be entitled to live with love and without judgement. We should all be entitled to live with love and without judgement.”
As for Granger, she clarified her stance to the fans of the Harry Potter series as well. In a couple of tweets she posted, she wrote:
“Trans people are who the say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told they aren’t who they say they are.
I want my trans followers to know that I and so many other people around the world see you, respect you and love you for who you are.”
Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told they aren’t who they say they are.

Previously it was Rupert Grint’s colleague and starboy Radcliffe who wrote a complete blog to support the trans community against the comments of J K Rowling. He apologized on her behalf and clarified that he thinks trans women are women.
“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.”
