World News – CA – Watch Pete Davidson on JK Rowling’s « disappointing » views on trans rights


« I long ago a few years, when the worst things she did were those’ Fantastic Beasts’ movies »

Pete Davidson shared his thoughts on JK Rowling’s controversial comments on transgender issues, which many fans and critics perceive to be transphobic

When asked on Saturday Night Live last night (October 10) if he found the Harry Potter author’s comments disappointing, Davidson said it was « very disappointing, » adding: « He A few years ago I was a long time ago when the worst things she did were those Fantastic Beasts movies No discrimination out there they did us all wrong « 

Davidson also said he found Rowling’s lack of inclusiveness baffling given the nature of her storytelling « What’s his problem? » the comedian asked « She’s creating a fantastic seven-book series about all types of mythical creatures living in harmony with wizards and elves and the one thing she can’t figure out is [Orange Is The New Black star] Laverne Cox?  »

When asked if he would stop reading Rowling’s books, Davidson confessed that he had never read any and « saw part of [Harry Potter and the Prisoner of] Azkaban in the plane once « The King Of Staten Island actor also suggested Rowling’s work was strongly anti-Semitic

Earlier this year (June 10), Rowling wrote an essay defending the comments that led to her being accused of transphobia and explaining why she felt the need to voice her opinions on the matter

Speaking to NME in a new interview released last week, Laura Jane Grace said she was able to separate Harry Potter from Rowling’s comments because she believed the franchise now existed beyond the author.

“I see a way to separate art from artist, and I don’t necessarily know how to explain it other than I can,” the singer explained “I can think JK Rowling is full shit and that his opinions suck, but at the same time, it didn’t mar Harry Potter reading to my daughter

« Harry Potter is not just the art of JK anymore, it’s the art of Daniel Radcliffe, it’s all the other actors who have been part of the Harry Potter universe »

Last night’s SNL also saw Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden transform into the fly that landed on Mike Pence’s head during the Vice Presidential Debate, and Jack White reworked “Ball And Biscuit” from The White Stripes
