J. K. Rowling, 51, is the author of the phenomenally popular Harry Potter fantasy novels. The books, and the movies based on the books, amassed Rowling a fortune estimated at £600 million in 2016, ranking her the 197th richest person in the UK.
Rowling is a left-winger and anti-nationalist globalist. She is against Brexit and Scottish nationalist, and actually called Scottish nationalists “Death Eaters” — the Nazi-like followers of evil Lord Voldemort in her Harry Potter stories. Commenting on the 2008 U.S. presidential election, she told the Spanish-language newspaper El País that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton would be “extraordinary” in the White House.
Like other British celebrities, such as actors Hugh “Dr. House” Laurie, Jason Isaacs, Liam Neeson, and Amanda Abbington (wife of Dr. Watson in Sherlock), Rowling thinks it is her business to butt her nose into the affairs and politics of the U.S.A.
Ian Miles Cheong reports for HeatStreet, Jan. 31, 2017:
“When she isn’t writing fantasy novels about boy wizards, J.K. Rowling keeps busy slamming random Trump supporters on Twitter.
Early this week, the Harry Potter author found time to call a Trump supporter who denigrated her writing as a ‘lonely virgin,’ a term intersectional feminists often use as an insult.
