(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- Warner Bros., the film studio that arguably benefitted more from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter franchise than she did, joined in with the woke bullies attacking the author over her comments about transgender activists and feminists. Rowling, who is a left-wing feminist, recently commented on Twitter that she believed erasing the identity of biological women flies in the face of feminist and erases the struggles of women everywhere.
The film studio behind her wildly popular Harry Potter movies chose not to defend Rowling, but to take the easy route and bully her too, issuing a statement reminding people to “foster empathy and advocate understanding of all communities.” Incredibly, they implied that Rowling was not empathetic of trans communities, despite making it clear in her Twitter posts and in a long essay that she empathizes with the trans community.
“If sex isn’t real, there’s no same sex attraction,” Rowling said, prompting the outcry. “If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth.”
Rowling went on to say that she other women in the feminist movement have been “empathetic to trans people for decades” and that she feels kinship with them because “they’re vulnerable in the same way as women,” but even that wasn’t enough to stop the outrage from the woke mobs. After actor Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter in the movies, came forward and publicly disagreed with Rowling, Warner Bros. was pushed to release their own statement.
“Warner Bros. position on inclusiveness is well established, and fostering a diverse and inclusive culture has never been more important to our company and to our audiences around the world,” they said. “We deeply value the work of our storytellers who give so much of themselves in sharing their creations with us all. We recognize our responsibility to foster empathy and advocate understanding of all communities and all people, particularly those we work with and those we reach through our content.”
Imagine attacking the author of some of the most popular modern books, and who created a universe that made billions of dollars for Warner Bros.
Radcliffe wasn’t the only actor to turn his back on Rowling, too. Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the movies, also slammed Rowling for her comments.
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.

Is there any loyalty or respect anymore? Or is that “outdated” too?
