Publishing Staff Threaten To Quit Unless JK Rowling’s New Book Is Canceled

Publishing Staff Threaten To Quit Unless JK Rowling’s New Book Is Canceled, by Sam Greenhill.

JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter. But she also stands up to transgender activists, by insisting that sex is real and that the meaning of “women” does not include men in dresses.

Yesterday morning at publishing house Hachette, several of those involved in Miss Rowling’s new children’s book, The Ickabog, are said to have staged their own rebellion during a heated meeting. One source said: ‘Staff in the children’s department at Hachette announced they were no longer prepared to work on the book.

‘They said they were opposed to her comments and wanted to show support for the trans lobby. These staff are all very “woke”, mainly in their twenties and early thirties, and apparently it is an issue they feel very strongly about.’ …

The first two chapters of The Ickabog, which were released online in May, had five million views in its first 24 hours, with visitors from more than 50 countries visiting The Ickabog website, Miss Rowling’s representatives have said. …

It is not the first time Hachette has faced a mutiny. Staff at the firm’s New York office staged a walkout in March in protest at its decision to publish Woody Allen’s autobiography. …

It has been a tumultuous few days for Miss Rowling since she posted a 3,600-word essay on her website about the pressures young people face to transition to another gender. …

Her essay drew widespread support but also stinging criticism from Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, who is worth £87million, Emma Watson, worth £52million and Rupert Grint, worth £40million.

How the left keep their PC fantasies alive

If the progressive and widely-loved author of Harry Potter can be cancelled, anybody can be cancelled. No one may stand up to the PC mob.

Therefore, anyone who isn’t cancelled is a PC toady (or the embattled President of the USA).
