BBC forced to apologize after transgender guest threw JK Rowling: ‘We should have disputed the claims’

During the interview, Henley said that Henley’s gaming website would not be covering the new game because of their ties to Rowling. In fact, Rowling’s critics have attempted to boycott the game, but they failed.

Henley accused Rowling of having “evil views,” which Henley defined as “transphobia.”

“The reason why we are not [supporting the game] is really the fact that harry potter and the world that harry potter exhibits is only fully connected to jk rowling but she has a platform that she is using to push transphobia, that she is using to build this campaign against trans people, particularly in the UK,” Henley said on the radio show. “Supporting this game continues to give JK Rowling a platform on which to hurt people.”

How did the BBC react?

BBC radio show host Evan Davis seemingly tried to defend Rowling, noting that the billionaire does not consider herself “transphobic”.

But the answer didn’t go far enough, and the audience followed suit more than 100 complaints. A BBC spokesman has since apologized because David essentially allowed Henley to air Henley’s grievances without argument.

“We accept that the claims made have not been adequately challenged and that we have come up short here,” the BBC statement said called.

“This is a difficult and contentious area that we are trying very hard to cover fairly,” the statement continued. “However, we should have challenged the claims more directly, and we apologize for not having done so.”

Rowling is regularly targeted by activists and supporters of the transgender agenda because she believes she is actively harming women. Her critics accuse her of being a “TERF,” or trans-exclusionary radical feminist.

The campaign against Rowling began more than three years ago when she publicly supported a researcher who lost her job for claiming biological sex was real. Since then, she has openly opposed the trans agenda.
