J.K. Rowling receives ‘so many death threats I could paper my house’

J.K. Rowling receives ‘so many death threats I could paper my house’. By AFP.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling says she has received a flood of death threats, as she slammed three transgender rights activists who posted her home address on Twitter. …

Rowling said that she and other women who have spoken out on gender issues had faced “campaigns of intimidation”, stalking and harassment, but vowed she would not be silenced.

The 56-year-old writer said she had received “so many death threats I could paper the house with them”, and that “families have been put into a state of fear and distress” by transgender activists.

The dispute began around two years ago when the author tweeted against use of the phrase “people who menstruate”, rather than only women.

The message caused a rift with some of the stars of the “Harry Potter” movies, including lead actor Daniel Radcliffe, who tweeted an apology on her behalf.

“Transgender women are women,” Radcliffe wrote in a post.
