JK Rowling slams Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson over trans rights support

Hogwarts will not be welcoming Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson home anytime soon.

After JK Rowling shared a recent review “of the medical evidence for transitioning children” that found that NHS did not know the longterm effects of gender-affirming healthcare for minors, fans were curious if the report could change the author’s relationship with the former “Harry Potter” child stars.

The British author was blunt when questioned whether she could forgive Watson, 33, and Radcliffe, 34, if they apologized for previous criticism of her comments opposing hormone blockers for kids.

“Just waiting for Dan and Emma to give you a very public apology … safe in the knowledge that you will forgive them …” one social media user wrote to Rowling.

“Not safe, I’m afraid,” Rowling, 58, responded on Wednesday.

Rowling went on to blast the celebrities who spoke out against her when she wrote an essay that was deemed transphobic in 2020.

“Celebs who cosied up to a movement intent on eroding women’s hard-won rights and who used their platforms to cheer on the transitioning of minors can save their apologies for traumatised detransitioners and vulnerable women reliant on single sex spaces,” she wrote.

Radcliffe, who played the titular character in the franchise’s eight films, affirmed his support for transgender rights and his disapproval of Rowling’s stance that same year.

“It’s clear that we need to do more to support transgender and nonbinary people, not invalidate their identities,” he said in a letter to the Trevor Project.

Watson, who has been a staunch advocate for LGBTQ+ and women’s rights since she stopped portraying Hermione Granger, also chimed in.

“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,” the actress said.

Fellow members of the “Harry Potter” franchise like Rupert Grint and “Fantastic Beasts” star Eddie Redmayne shared their support for the transgender community after Rowling’s controversial essay.

Rowling has been open about her views on the transgender community, and said she’d “happily” do jail time for her beliefs.

After a new hate crime law — which bans hatred on the basis of age, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation and transgender identity — began earlier this month, Rowling has taunted Scottish police to try to arrest her for misgendering people.

India Willoughby, the first transgender national news anchor in the UK, reported Rowling to authorities for misgendering her as a “man” on social media.

“Freedom of speech and belief are at an end in Scotland if the accurate description of biological sex is deemed criminal,” the billionaire wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
