J.K. Rowling is likely ‘inconsolable’ over the news that the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle, Washington, has removed any trace of her from its hall of fame and Harry Potter exhibit. The action was taken over her stance that biological sex is real, a position deemed beyond the pale. The Telegraph has more.
The Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) in Seattle, Washington, accused the author of holding “super hateful and divisive” opinions in a lengthy blog post explaining its decision.
Rowling has received online abuse for her opinions on transgender issues after arguing that women should not be ousted from their jobs for believing biological sex is real.
She strongly denied accusations of transphobia in 2020 after mocking the use of the phrase “people who menstruate” in place of “women”.
While MoPOP continues to display memorabilia from the Harry Potter films, which are adapted from Rowling’s most famous novels, an article by its exhibitions project manager confirms references to the franchise’s creator are no longer included.
