Transgender activists have insulted the popular ‘Harry Potter’ actor after his death for once defending JK Rowling

Popular Harry Potter actor Robbie Coltrane passed away on Friday and transgender activists wasted no time insulting and condemning him for once defending creator JK Rowling from online trolls.

Coltrane was known for his role as Rubeus Hagrid in the incredibly popular film series based on Rowling’s books, but he also came to her defense when she was attacked by transgender activists.

“I don’t think what she said was really offensive.” he said in September 2020 in relation to attacks on Rowling.

“I don’t know why, but there’s a whole Twitter generation of people hanging around waiting to be insulted. You wouldn’t have won the war, would you?” he joked.

“That’s me, I talk like a grumpy old man, but you’re just like, ‘Oh, get over it. Be wise, stand tall and move on,” Coltrane continued. “I don’t want to get into all of this because of all the hate mail and all the shit I don’t need in my time of life.”

Many took to social media to document their hatred of Coltrane.

“Robbie Coltrane defended the woman who must not be named in her transphobia. I’m glad to know that the world has one less transphobe today because of his death.” read a tweet.

“Your reminder that Robbie Coltrane is on the side of a massive transphobe and I hope he looks up to us.” said another critic.

“Robbie Coltrane, who supported bloody transphobia, died and I guess people want me to be sad about that? F*** that noise. I do not care.” answered another critic.

“Robbie Coltrane was a privileged transphobe who fueled Joanne’s violent transphobic campaign.” read another tweet. “I hope he rots in all the hells there are.

Coltrane was 72 years old.

Rowling Posted a memory of the actor.

“I will never meet anyone like Robbie again,” she wrote. “He was an incredible talent, one of a kind, and I’ve been incredibly fortunate to know him, work with him and laugh my ass off with him. I send my love and deepest condolences to his family, especially his children.”
