Winston Marshall, former Mumford & Sons banjo player and co-founder, said there was one “cancelled” celebrity for whom he felt special compassion before he, too, was targeted by the cancel culture mob.

Harry Potter Author J K Rowling sex attraction

“There is no same-sex attraction if sex isn’t real,” Harry potter author J K Rowling tweeted in 2020. “If sex isn’t real, women’s lived realities around the world are erased. I know and love trans people, but eliminating the concept of sex removes many people’s ability to have meaningful conversations about their lives. It is not a sin to tell the truth.”

She has also expressed “disgust” for those who advocate for gender-focused policies that “endanger extremely vulnerable girls.”

Progressives and prominent figures, including some “Harry Potter” cast members, have condemned her remarks. Daniel Radcliffe, the franchise’s star, wrote a blog post in response to Rowling’s remarks in order to stand with trans and queer children who, he claims, identified with his wizard character.

“And so, seeing them in pain on that day, I told them that not everyone in the franchise felt the same way. And that was really important,” Radcliffe wrote, cautioning the press not to portray his post as evidence of “infighting.” “between him and J K Rowling

Marshall is no stranger to the culture of cancellation. Last year, the musician received online backlash after tweeting his support for “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy,” a book written by conservative author Andy Ngo about the left-wing radicalism of Antifa. However, he stated that his compassion for Rowling began long before his own painful experience.

In an interview with Fox News Digital, Marshall said of J K Rowling’s situation, “I had sympathy beforehand.” “Because what happened to her is outrageous in my opinion. The level of misogyny she’s had to put up with. It’s heinous. If it doesn’t make your blood boil, I believe it says a lot

The musician characterised J K Rowling as pro-woman and an LGBT ally, and in other pointed remarks, he disparaged the “Harry Potter” cast, whom Rowling helped launch to fame.

Marshall insisted, “She said nothing transphobic.” “All she’s done is advocate for women. It’s heinous. She has done so much for gays and lesbians throughout her career and philanthropic history. It’s outrageous that she has to put up with this. And it’s disgusting that the other actors she gave a career to speak so negatively about her. To be honest, it’s embarrassing.”

Marshall used the opportunity to express his thoughts on puberty blockers, anti-puberty medications, and progressive efforts that, in his opinion, have “bullied” girls out of school sports.

“It’s a very difficult situation for any of these artists,” he said. “It’s a very painful experience, losing everything for having incorrect opinions, even if they’re perfectly legitimate, you know? These are, in fact, compassionate perspectives. She is concerned about women, for example. She cares about children; look at what they’re doing to them, putting them on puberty blockers and undergoing irreversible surgery.”

“These children will be sterilised,” he continued. “Someone has to stand up for them. Someone has to stand up for girls who are bullied out of sports. Someone has to fight for the truth. As a result, these are critical issues.”

However, Rowling has received backing from a few “Harry Potter” alumni. When asked about the controversy, Draco Malfoy actor Tom Felton said he chose to “celebrate” Rowling’s films’ impact. And, like Marshall, Ralph Fiennes, who played the series’ villain Voldemort, recently called the abuse directed at J K Rowling “despicable.”
