JK Rowling under fire as she throws support behind Maya Forstater

The Harry Potter star spoke out on Twitter to say it wasn’t right that Forstater was fired for sharing her views online.

JK Rowling has come under fire for her public support of Maya Forstater.

The Harry Potter author left some of her fans in shock when she tweeted her support for the researcher, who was fired for her tweet about transgender women.

It comes after an employment judge ruled against Forstater, who lost her job as a researcher at a thinktank after she tweeted that transgender women cannot change their biological sex.

Her opinions were deemed to be “absolutist” and the judge ruled that her views did “not have the protected characteristic of philosophical belief”.
