“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling slammed transgender activists Monday for publicizing her home address on social media.
On Friday night, the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance, comedian Holly Stars, actor Georgia Frost and drag king Richard Energy staged a demonstration in front of Rowling’s home near Edinburgh, Scotland, in protest against her controversial views on the trans community.
In a thread on Twitter, Rowling bashed the the trio for “doxxing” her when they posted a now-deleted photo on the social media site with the author’s home address visible in the background. “Doxxing” is a term used to describe the publication of someone else’s private information online without their consent.
