J.K. Rowling continues to top herself...

Just when we thought her tweets couldn't get any more transphobic, she somehow managed to do it. Luckily, Jonathan Van Ness is not taking it this time around. 

The popular Queer Eye grooming guru recently called out the once-beloved Harry Potter author after she shared another transphobic tweet. Because she seemingly hasn’t gotten the memo that people have no interest in her opinion, she decided to take to Twitter recently.

Alongside a link to a recent news article about new policies enacted by Scottish police, Rowling wrote: “War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The penised individual who raped you is a woman.”

The article in question criticizes the Scottish police force for honoring a prisoner’s gender identity, portraying trans identities as a means for avoiding punishment as well as preying on the vulnerable.

Thankfully, the Queer Eye star thankfully wasted no time in responding!

“The biggest threats of violence against women has always been cisgender men,” they wrote in a quote tweet.

In addition to that fact, transgender people are actually over four times more likely to be victims of violent crime than cisgender people, according to the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law.

Van Ness continued on to say, “...as trans women are assaulted, deprived of work, killed, and raped JK is safe in her mansion.”

Mic. Drop.

But JVN wasn’t the only one with something to say on the matter. Former fans shared their disgust and disappointment regarding Rowling’s ignorance.

“Great knowing the author of my childhood obsession hates my existence...” one Twitter user wrote.

“My trans daughter feels the same,” another responded.
