Author, JK Rowling excluded from Harry Potter's 20th anniversary celebration due to her tweets criticizing transgender people



JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series has been excluded from the 20th celebration of the Harry Potter movie due to her tweets on transgender people.



HBO Max announced on Tuesday, November 16 it would bring together the cast and crew members from all eight Harry Potter films for a retrospective special entitled 'Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return To Hogwarts.'







The press release said it would feature its stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint - who have not made a public appearance together since the premiere of the last premiere of the franchise, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2, in July 2011, as well as filmmaker Chris Columbus, who directed the blockbuster film.



But the press release skipped out JK Rowling, who is responsible for the creation of the Harry Potter characters.



According to TMZ, sources say Rowling will be shown in archival footage from the creation of the first movie, but will not make a new appearance in the special.



In June 2020, JK Rowling took to Twitter to criticize an opinion piece that called women 'people who menstruate' instead of using the women.



'I'm sure there used to be a word for these people,' she tweeted at the time. 'Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?'







She then continued with a thread discussing biological sex.Latest Post
