The world wide famous author, J.K Rowling, who penned the world of possibilities through magical wand, recently made headlines with her objectionable transphobic tweets. The rant on transgender, their rights and her suggestion that women only menstruate went on in a series of tweets which were highly criticized by fans and followers, along with Hollywood celebrities.

In this row, on 11th June,’20, Emma Watson, who rose to fame by portraying the character of Hermione Granger in the wizard series Harry Potter, tweeted in support of transgender and lashed out at Ms Rowling.
She tweeted, “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.”
Watson made a further statement in a tweet thread,“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.”

Not only being vocal about the situation, she also vowed to donate to the organisations Mermaids and Mama Cash dedicated to helping and supporting the transgender community.

Earlier this week, Daniel Radcliffe aka Harry Potter also stood in support of the community by tweeting, “Transgender women are women,” and panned the Harry Potter author J.K Rowling.
Along with this Daniel also apologized to all the Harry Potter fans for ruining their experience through this controversial row.
