J.K. Rowling Condemns Activist Actors for Leaking Her Home Address Amid Trans Controversy

J.K. Rowling is speaking out.

The Harry Potter author spoke out on social media regarding trolls who leaked her home address, inciting death threats amid her controversial comments about the transgender community.

“Last Friday, my family’s address was posted on Twitter by three activist actors who took pictures of themselves in front of our house, carefully positioning themselves to ensure that our address was visible,” she wrote.

“I want to say a massive thank you to everybody who reported the image to @TwitterSupport. Your kindness and decency made all the difference to my family and me. I’d also like to thank @PoliceScotland for their support and assistance in this matter,” she continued.

“I implore those people who retweeted the image with the address still visible, even if they did so in condemnation of these people’s actions, to delete it,” she added.

She added that she assumed the trolls doxxing her “would intimidate me out of speaking up for women’s sex-based rights. They should have reflected on the fact that I’ve now received so many death threats I could paper the house with them, and I haven’t stopped speaking out. Perhaps – and I’m just throwing this out there – the best way to prove your movement isn’t a threat to women, is to stop stalking, harassing and threatening us.”

“We are aware of this incident and police enquiries are ongoing,” a police spokesperson said to the Evening Standard.

The news comes at the same time as an update about J.K. Rowling‘s appearance in an upcoming Harry Potter HBO Max special.
