Harry Potter's Noma Dumezweni & Katie Leung Respond After J.K. Rowling's Tweets

Two Harry Potter actresses – Katie Leung and Noma Dumezweni – are responding to J.K. Rowling‘s controversial tweets about transgender people.

The famed author tweeted her frustration after an article wrote that “gender non-binary persons menstruate.”

J.K. then reposted the article, and added her own commentary, “‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud? She wrote further tweets that have been called out as transphobic.

Katie played the role of Cho Chang in the Harry Potter films, while Noma played the role of Hermoine in the stage play Harry Potter & the Cursed Child.
