Ralph Fiennes calls backlash against J.K. Rowling’s trans comments ‘disturbing’

Ralph Fiennes calls backlash against J.K. Rowling’s trans comments ‘disturbing’!

The Harry Potter star who played the evil Lord Voldemort in four sequels based upon Rowling’s boy wizard story was stunned by the backlash against the author.

Ralph Fiennes came out defending J.K Rowling amid her controversial comments about the trans community in an interview with the Telegraph. 

In a recent conversation with Telegraph, Fiennes said, “I can’t understand the vitriol directed at her.”

58 years-old British actor added, “I can understand the heat of an argument, but I find this age of accusation and the need to condemn irrational. I find the level of hatred that people express about views that differ from theirs, and the violence of language towards others, disturbing.”

It was back in In June 2020, when Rowling shared an opinion piece that someone had written referring to “people who menstruate,” with a caption, “I’m sure they’re used to be a word for those people.”

 

Rowling’s comments had left many upset and she was called out by LGBTQ advocacy organization GLAAD as well. 

 

In response to J.K Rowling’s comments several cast members of the Harry Potter franchise, including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and Eddie Redmayne, had also issued statements supporting the trans community in response.
