In a huge twist to the entertainment world, it seems that JK Rowling is getting some kind of leniency when it comes to her very shocking views. As reported by Deadline – The BBC appears unmoved by the online clamor to cancel JK Rowling over her views on transgender rights.
The British broadcaster are looking into renewing Strike after they have issued an apology to Rowling twice now after she was accused of being transphobic. What’s odd about this is that while, yes, Rowling has been accused of such – she has also played into the role of being transphobic very well (if she isn’t). On her Twitter, she has consistently posted Transphobic slurs as well as getting into debates with people over the topic.
She has spoken candidly about receiving online hate from her critics, saying that she has received so many death threats she could “paper the house with them.” Diving deeper into this, Rowling has also given into these discussions and has made the situation worse for herself as she continued to fan the flames. However, the BBC seems to be moving to her side seemingly for the sake of deals.
When the BBC was given a chance to state their own stance on the topic and of Rowling, they wished to not comment on the issue., which seems to tell everything.
