The plotline has a cisgender man who dresses up as a woman to stalk and murder
JK Rowling isn't just credited with writing the Harry Potter series, she has other best-selling books under her belt. Especially, the detective series "Cormoran Strike" and it's finally getting its 5th installment.
However, it's not been received well by the readers and even her own fans. The novel titled "Troubled Blood" is due to be published this Tuesday. And the plot has been considered largely transphobic.
The plotline has a cisgender man who dresses up as a woman to stalk and murder, according to a review from The Telegraph.
The plot has been particularly called out as this is a recurring trend with the author J.K Rowling. She had previously, and in several occasions shared transphobic opinions on Twitter.
This affair has caused the #ripjkrowling trend on the social media platform. People believe her career is almost dead.
Many rejoiced the fact that they wouldn't have to associate the Harry Potter franchise with Rowling any more.
This year she's been involved in so many altercations with the trans community that even Harry Potter actors have shown solidarity with the widely discriminated community.
