Rowling has offered various remarks on transgender individuals in recent years, prompting allegations of transphobia, which the writer has recently denied.
Many stars of the “Harry Potter” film franchise, including Daniel Radcliffe, who played the Harry Potter character, have stood in opposition to Rowling’s perspectives, with the WeirdAl star saying that so many eccentric and trans children had been ‘hurt” by her remarks.
