Pop Culture Museum Erases JK Rowling from Harry Potter Display Over Controversial Views on Transgender Issues

The Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle has removed all references to J.K. Rowling, the creator of the Harry Potter franchise, from its exhibition. The decision was made in response to her perceived “super hateful and divisive” views, particularly related to transgender issues. Project manager Chris Moore, who is transgender, explained in a blog post that the curators decided to remove her artifacts to minimize her impact on the display. The museum continues to exhibit Harry Potter memorabilia but no longer mentions Rowling as the author of the series.

J.K. Rowling has become a controversial figure in recent years due to her public support for a British woman who was fired over her views on gender and her concerns for the safety of biological women. While Rowling claims she supports the trans community and has spoken out about being a victim of domestic violence, her views have been met with criticism from some quarters, including the three young stars of the Harry Potter films, who have expressed solidarity with the trans community.
