J.K. Rowling: A Podcast, A Lawsuit, And A Defence

Wizarding World creator and author J.K. Rowling will release a new podcast titled The Witch Trials of J.K. Rowling with the Free Press at the end of February. This comes after Rowling posted “controversial” tweets about simple biology and was persecuted on social media. The podcast debuts on February 21st and will release an episode weekly for six weeks.

In other news, Rowling seems to have filed a lawsuit against an activist named JJ Welles.

In the now-deleted Tweet, Welles called Rowling a Nazi. Rowling responded back in December, threatening legal action. It would appear that some sort of lawsuit did occur, as Welles issued a grammatically error-filled retraction this week.

He tweeted out: “I would like to publicly apologise for a previous Twitter thread where I interacted with JK Rowling on matters relating to the transgender community. I have now removed these tweets and would like to apologise to JK Rowling directly for causing potential upset.” It appears the saying “fuck around, find out” applies in this scenario. Kudos to Rowling for sticking to her beliefs.

Lastly, in Rowling-related news, The New York Times published an article defending Rowling, and calling out how “absurd” this behavior is. This is refreshing, as most people who show support for the author are abused online.

When the lawyers come out, people really start to act proper for a split second.
Wokesters get the smack down when it comes to reality.
