A New York City Barnes & Noble threw Twitter into a tizzy over a snarky display for ‘Unproblematic Wizarding World’ books in an apparent slap at JK Rowling as the Harry Potter author continues to face backlash for her comments about the trans community.
The bookstore, located in Union Square, set up the display in early November, taking a jab at Rowling, 56, who enraged the trans community last year after she mocked an online article which used the words ‘people who menstruate’ instead of ‘women’.
The display at one of the few book stores left in the city features the works of Ursula Le Guin, Brandon Sanderson, Deborah Harkness and others who have written about magic and witchcraft, but are more obscure when compared to Rowling.
The Twitter storm comes as Rowling blasted three trans activists on Monday for trying to ‘intimidate’ her after they protested outside her house in Scotland before posting a picture of her address on social media.
