Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan criticized the cast of Harry Potter after it seems that they failed to support the author of the successful magical saga, JK Rowling.
The cast recently met to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first film’s release for an HBO special, but JK was reported not to be involved.
The author has ruffled some feathers about some of the things she has said about the transgender community in recent years, prompting some of the Harry Potter cast members to talk.
Chris Rankin, who played Percy Weasley in the films, described JK’s views on the transgender community as “harmful.”
Already in 2019, JK defended a woman who lost her job for sharing anti-transgender tweets , and later seemed to mock a charity for using the term “menstruating people”.
Chris said of JK, as per Mail online: “I work a lot with LGBTQ + focused charities.
“Many of my family are members of the community. You can probably guess where my alliances reside in this regard. “
He added: “When a trans person says they are male or female, this is who they are and this is how we should treat them. It is harmful for them to say the opposite ”.
In the wake of Chris’s comments, Piers impressed the cast and branded them all as “twerps”.
He raged on Twitter: “Weasley by name and by nature. These Potter stars are such a bunch of ungrateful little idiots … more interested in pathetic signs of virtue than upholding the right of the woman who made them all rich and famous for having an opinion that most people agree with.
While some believe JK was “snubbed” by the reunion, the author is still being discussed during the reunion episode where the likes of Hagrid actor Robbie Coltrane got excited about her work.
He said, “One of the many reasons I admire JK so much is that millions of people now read books that would never raise a book in their lives, and suddenly you realize the power of writing.”
Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the movies, added that people “fell in love” with JK’s writing.
It is said that it is during this segment that JK makes an appearance after all, according to The independent.
