J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, is facing backlash once again for her “transphobic” comments.
The event, a yearly Harry Potter trivia quiz for children, is about to celebrate its sixth celebration to date. The event has been one of the most popular of the festival but event coordinators felt it was too controversial to continue.
Peter Biggs, the festival chairman, went on the record saying, “The overwhelming response was there was a risk around causing distress to particular members of the community and that was the last thing we wanted to do… We always thought Booktown should be an inclusive, welcoming place for everyone, so we took the decision not to go with Harry Potter.”
Rowling remains the target of a months-long concerted #CancelCulture campaign that continues to shame her for her supposedly controversial views on transgenderism.
Last Year, Rowling penned an essay wherein she argued that a “woman is not a costume” and that the transgender issue needed to be better examined.
