Detective “Troubled Blood” by J. K. Rowling, which was released today in English, has become a reason for critical comments from Netizens, according to NBC News.
The new book is the fifth in a series of “Cormoran Strike” novels that the author of potteriana writes under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. It’s about a serial killer disguising himself as a woman and stalking his victims.
This story was the reason for the appearance of the hashtag RIP JKRowling (“Rest in peace, JK Rowling”), as some users saw it as a critical attitude of the author to transgender people.
“This woman is unhinged, and I mean that the amount of damage with could cause to the trans community is fucking horrifying,” @irisckp noted, “In memory of JK Rowling. She ain’t dead, but she killed her career by proudly hating trans people & no one would miss her that much anyway,” @memeforhire wrote, “JK Rowling: Continues being an unapologetic TERF.Me: Hopelessly praying that it will soon be revealed that Rowling did not write Harry Potter,” said @gzemcelik.
JK Rowling began to be accused of transphobia after her June posts on Twitter, where she commented on an article about the biological field and suggested that instead of the term “people who have menstruation,” remember the more familiar word “woman.”
