J.K. Rowling Straight-Up SAVAGED One of Her Critics Over Harper's Open Letter on Cancel Culture
To set the perimeters, there are two groups in this post: "liberals" and "leftists." The liberals are the ones who suck less.
On Tuesday, a group of liberals wrote an open letter to some of their leftist colleagues on cancel culture. Basically, they say it's time to cancel cancel culture and allow diversity of thought on the left. My favorite part of it was the super necessary cheap shot at the right in the beginning, as if we're the ones causing liberals such professional grief. But I digress. One of the signatories was J.K. Rowling, whose transformation from celebrated author to problematic transphobe was so subtle, you barely noticed (see J.K. ROWLING IS FED UP WITH THE TRANSGENDER AGENDA and J.K. ROWLING DOUBLES DOWN, WRITES POWERFUL ESSAY AGAINST MILITANT TRANSGENDER ACTIVISM).
The open letter was released, and leftists responded how you would assume: by wanting to cancel the liberals who signed it. So of course, liberals had to apologize for signing the open letter. One of whom is Jennifer Finney Boylan.

I don't know who Jennifer Finney Boylan is, and to paraphrase The Rock, IT DOESN'T MATTER who Jennifer Finney Boylan is, other than, apparently, someone who doesn't understand how open letters work. Boylan wasn't the only liberal who apologized, but she was the only one who got savaged by J.K. Rowling. With one tweet, the author destroyed Jennifer Finney Boylan just like ... I don't know, some apropos Harry Potter reference. I thought the books were dumb. Come fight me.
You’re still following me, Jennifer. Be sure to publicly repent of your association with Goody Rowling before unfol… https://t.co/SUBuQlBPxN— J.K. Rowling (@J.K. Rowling)1594209756.0
So this was our entertainment on Tuesday: Liberals asking leftists to please stop canceling them, and leftists telling liberals that they're now going to cancel them harder. It's only a matter of time before Harper's apologizes for running the open letter, claiming that they didn't realize what they were publishing before they published it.
