Transgender activists staged a demonstration in front of J.K. Rowling’s house late last week — and shared images of it, purportedly including its address — drawing criticism from the Harry Potter author.
Rowling accused the three activists of doxxing her in a series of tweets. (Doxxing is sharing someone's private information online without their consent.)
"Perhaps — and I’m just throwing this out there — the best way to prove your movement isn’t a threat to women, is to stop stalking, harassing and threatening us," she added.
Comedian Holly Stars, one of the protesters, took down the photos but said that was because the group was receiving “an overwhelming amount of serious and threatening transphobic messages,” not because of Rowling’s complaints.
Rowling has been accused frequently, over the past few years, of being transphobic, a characterization that she disputes.
If you’ve missed any of that drama, you can catch up on it and the most recent incident in NBC’s article.
