Warner Admits It Was Wrong To Block Questions About JK Rowling

Warner Bros Studio Tour, a branch of parent company Warner Bros, has admitted that it was wrong to prevent a SKY News reporter asking questions about JK Rowling.

In a statement the company said that it was proud to work with the Harry Potter author. A Warner PR worker intervened when SKY’s reporter asked actor Tom Felton to comment on Rowling.

According to The Times:

Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the films, remained silent when the interviewer, Claire Gregory, asked why Rowling had been absent for many recent 25th anniversary celebrations of her book series.

Many cast members have distanced themselves from her comments on transgender rights and language, including the stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

Felton, 34, was asked on camera if it felt strange for her not to be involved. Out of shot a PR official interrupted and said “next question please”.

A later statement, released by a third-party PR company, told Sky News: “JK Rowling is not connected to Warner or Tom Felton. The team felt it was not relevant to the piece.”

Felton was promoting an expansion of the studio tour in London.

Warner Bros has now disowned that statement. It said: “Warner Bros has enjoyed a creative, productive and fulfilling partnership with JK Rowling for the past 20 years.

She is one of the world’s most accomplished storytellers, and we are proud to be the studio to bring her vision, characters, and stories to life now — and for decades to come.

“On Monday, a statement was issued by a third-party media agency that appeared contrary to this view. The statement was wholly wrong, and Warner Bros Studio Tour London regrets it happened as part of a media event that day.”

Rowling, 56, argues for the primacy of sex-based rights over gender and has compared gender transition to gay conversion therapy.

Biological sex (male/female) is fundamentally determined by chromosomes, which, as far as I am aware, cannot be changed. How people feel before and after puberty and what they do to their bodies with surgery and drugs etc is a different matter. I liken it to a car – it has a VIN number that can’t be altered – anything else you do to it, like fitting a different engine, etc, won’t ever change the VIN or the original specification it had “at birth”. So it might look like a Ford Mustang, but if the VIN says it started life as a Ford Escort then it will never truly be a Mustang, only a modified Escort.

Hi Miashco, Just noticed there was finally another post under this article. As before i had been in isolation since last Friday. How’s things?

I have fond memory’s of seeing the first film Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone, at the cinema near Hyde park corner in 2001. A friend had asked me to go with her, and at the time i had never heard of the books. Though i now have all of them and the films in my collection.

Its ironic in a way that J.K Rowling should be getting attacked for being un woke. As even back in the good old days when woke was known as P.C. It was noticeable how much effort had gone into both the books and films to be inclusive regarding ethnicity. With characters from many different backgrounds and cultures. But to be fair unlike today, it seemed to me that this was coming from a good place, wanting all children to be able to relate to the books. And even though she has done little for the trans and BLT community, lets never forget all she has done for the gingers.

Thankfully unlike the over sexualization of children and the young today, sexuality and sex of any persuasion is noticeably absent from the story’s, that instead portray an innocence of childhood crushes. So I’m surprised given the current state of affairs that there hasn’t been any complaints asking why no trans children were portrayed, and why drag queens were absent at Hogwarts school of wizardry.


Only a few years ago J.K was being applauded for her work which continues to bring joy to millions. Her charming magical story’s portraying now old fashioned notions such as friendship, loyalty, and good overcoming evil. So I find it sickening how the actors who largely owe their fortunes to Rowling have turned their back on her. The three leads between them currently have an estimated fortune of 215 million dollars. Though Tom Felton and Rupert Grint, only have a measly 20 million each. Instead of passing snide remarks and ignoring the author, i suggest these sadly indoctrinated woke puppets should be eternally grateful to her, for living lives few could dream of. Especially as J.K was given final say over the casting of the main parts.

I find things unrecognizable from when i first saw philosophers stone just 21 years ago. We are fast becoming a society where people will be terrified to say anything without fear of being criminalized and ostracized from society. It will matter not whether what we say is true or false. As only those who believe what their told or keep their opinions to themselves, will have any place in this ‘Brave New World’. Unless of course we can pull things back from the abys.
