J.K. Rowling Returns Award from Kennedy Family After Being Criticized by Kerry Kennedy

J.K. Rowling is returning an award that she received from the Kennedy family last year after she was criticized by Kerry Kennedy.

The “Harry Potter” author received the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organization in December 2019. Kerry, who is the daughter of the late RFK, is the president of the organization.

Earlier this month, Kerry released a statement to say she had spoken with Rowling about the recent comments she made, which were widely viewed as transphobic.

“Over the course of June 2020 — LGBTQ Pride Month — and much to my dismay, J.K. Rowling posted deeply troubling transphobic tweets and statements,” Kennedy wrote in her statement.

She says she talked with Rowling “to express my profound disappointment that she has chosen to use her remarkable gifts to create a narrative that diminishes the identity of trans and nonbinary people, undermining the validity and integrity of the entire transgender community — one that disproportionately suffers from violence, discrimination, harassment, and exclusion and, as a result, experiences high rates of suicide, suicide attempts, homelessness, and mental and bodily harm. Black trans women and trans youth in particular are targeted.”
