Fantastic Beasts star Eddie Redmayne said she was alarmed by the “vitriol” targeting Harry Potter author JK Rowling after his comments on trans rights, adding that the reaction on social media was “absolutely disgusting” .Redmayne was speaking to the Daily Mail while filming the third Fantastic Beasts movie, which is produced and co-written by Rowling. He said he sent her a private note.

Redmayne also stood up for her “trans friends and colleagues” who “face discrimination on a daily basis,” adding, “Likewise, there continues to be a horrific torrent of abuse against trans people online and around the world that is devastating. ”

In June, Redmayne publicly disagreed with Rowling’s lengthy statement on trans rights. He said: “As someone who has worked with both JK Rowling and members of the trans community, I wanted to make it clear where I am. I don’t agree with Jo’s comments. Trans women are women, trans men are men, and non-binary identities are valid. ”

Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have also expressed their disagreement.
