After sparking an endless row over tweets about trans women, author JK Rowling has created a new controversy, like his new book, Agitated blood, is accused by many of being transphobic. It started after reviews of the book – written under the pseudonym “Robert Galbraith” – started pouring in, hinting at transphobic elements.

A report in Los Angeles Times cited a review of The telegraph this corroborates what many are talking about. Troubled Blood, published under its alias Robert Galbraith, focuses on the disappearance of a woman who was allegedly the victim of Dennis Creed, a transvestite serial killer.

The review reads further: One wonders what critics of Rowlings’ stance on trans issues will do with a book whose moral seems to be: never trust a man in a robe.

Trans activist Paris Lees took to Twitter to express her take on the issue. JK Rowling’s new book is about a transvestite serial killer. Meanwhile, in the real world, the number of trans people killed in Brazil has increased by 70% this year, young trans women are left to burn in cars and men who kill us (because they are trans) are pardoned and sent home. I know many of you who follow me probably share some of the fears surrounding the myth of men dressing up as women to hurt women. If I weren’t trans, I guess I would too. But I ask you to look inside your heart and ask yourself what is really going on here.

Actor Robbie Coltrane, however, who played the character of Hagrid in the films came out in defense of the author. A report in The independent quotes him as saying that critics wait to be offended.
