JK Rowling has deleted a tweet declaring her love for fellow author Stephen King after he voiced his support for the trans women. Earlier this month, many people, including a list of celebrities, slammed Rowling for posting insensitive and ‘transphobic’ comments about trans women. After facing a heavy backlash, the author defended her remarks and mentioned that she is domestic abuse and sexual assault survivor. Following this, British Labour Party MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle claimed Rowling was using her experience with domestic abuse as a weapon against trans activism.Reacting to his comments, Rowling pointed out how men treat women’s opinions as if they are “acts of violence.” King ended up retweeting her post on his own feed. In response, Rowling shared an appreciation tweet for King. “It’s so much easier for men to ignore women’s concerns, or to belittle them, but I won’t ever forget the men who stood up when they didn’t need to. Thank you, Stephen,” she wrote. Following this, a fan asked King to clarify where is stands on transgender issues, considering he had reposted Rowling’s tweet.
