Wonder Woman icon Lynda Carter has effortlessly shut down JK Rowling in one single tweet.

Over the weekend, the Harry Potter author took to Twitter and shared an article from The Times alongside a transphobic tweet.

The linked article criticised the Scottish police after they announced that perpetrators of sexual assault would be recorded based on their gender identity.

“War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The penised individual who raped you is a woman,” Rowling tweeted.

LGBTQ+ advocates and Harry Potter fans were quick to condemn the once-beloved author for her harmful words.

Amongst the critics was the iconic Carter, who effortlessly shut down Rowling in one powerful tweet.

“You don’t have to be trans to understand the importance of respecting trans people and affirming their identities,” Carter wrote.

“Life is just too short. I can’t imagine how it makes any sense to use one’s fame and resources to put others down.”

The Sky High actress isn’t the only celebrity to call out Rowling’s latest tweets.

Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness also clapped back at the author on Twitter.

“The biggest threats of violence against women has always been cisgender men, not trans women, unless J.K.’s constant transphobic, cherry-picked vitriol convinces you otherwise, they wrote.

“But as trans women are assaulted, deprived of work, killed, and raped J.K. is safe in her mansion.”

This isn’t the first time that 56-year she has expressed her transphobic viewpoints.

Back in 2020, Rowling caused controversy with a series of harmful tweets – and later a 3,600 word essay on her website – about trans people, arguing that only women menstruate and weighing in on the tired ‘trans bathroom’ debate.

“When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman – and, as I’ve said, gender confirmation certificates may now be granted without any need for surgery or hormones – then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside,” she wrote.

Rowling has also faced intense criticism for the plot of her latest Strike novel, which features a cisgender man who wears dresses and kills women.

A review from The Telegraph reads: “The meat of the book is the investigation into a cold case: the disappearance of GP Margot Bamborough in 1974, thought to have been a victim of Dennis Creed, a transvestite serial killer.

“One wonders what critics of Rowling’s stance on trans issues will make of a book whose moral seems to be: never trust a man in a dress.”
