A newspaper columnist has joked that JK Rowling is working on a new book: “Hattie Potter and the Post-Op Transgender.”
Patrick Kidd, writing in the Times diary column, made the comments in response to a tweet from JK Rowling that she was struggling to choose a gender for characters in her new book.
Then in the Times column, Kidd wrote: “JK Rowling is struggling with her latest book… Will this be Hattie Potter and the Post-Op Transgender?”
After claiming her villainous creation Lord Voldemort is “nowhere near as bad” as Donald Trump, Rowling has now turned her attention to the presidential candidate’s campaign team. Trump’s spokeswoman Katrina Pierson caused a stir on social media recently after a controversial tweet from 2012 went viral.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Harry Potter franchise, Death Eaters is the name given to the dark, twisted followers of Lord Voldemort.
Rowling has become known for giving brilliant responses on social media. Highlights include a response back in May 2015 to the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), who took offence to the idea of Rowling’s creation Dumbledore marrying fellow wizard Gandalf.
