The book burners are back

Newsweek reports:

A new TikTok trend has emerged this week as former “Harry Potter” fans protest author J.K. Rowling’s widely criticized views on trans people by burning copies of her books.

One video, posted by TikTok user @elmcdo shows a number of “Harry Potter” books being placed on a burning pyre.

The bookburners are living up to their historical legacy.

The voice-over continues: “The positive impact that J.K. Rowling’s work had on millions of readers does not negate how her hateful lobbying has affected the trans community.

“This doesn’t even touch on the harmful fatphobia, racism and valorization of supramacists and child abusers in her most famous work.

OMG, Harry Potter has fatphobia!
