J.K. Rowling may be a good and famous author, but it seems that many people had become disappointed with her over the past few months due to her comments on transphobic. One of among them is Pete Davidson, who is a writer and producer besides being an actor and comedian.
Pete publicly spoke against and condemned the author during the recent Saturday’s Night Live. Bill Burr was the host for Saturday Night Live’s Season 46 that began premiering from October 3, 2020. Pete Davidson is one of the repertory players of the show along with many others in the Saturday Night Live of 2020-201. Let’s know all in details all about what Pete had spoken about J.K. Rowling during the Saturday Night Live on October 10.
Fan or Not: Pete Davidson
There are several Harry Potter themed Tattoos on Pete Davidson. Like many other fans, he also got himself six tattoos and got his inspiration from the famous fantasy series. The six tattoos are Dumbeldore quote, Harry’s lightning-shaped bolt scar, the symbol of Deathly Hallows, sorting hat, golden snitch and G for Gryffindor. Pete has also spoken in the past years that from the time he was a young boy, he was a fan of the series.
In 2016, he also told Rolling Stone that he read all the books and about his excitement after seeing the first movie of the series. Pete also said that the movies live up to their name and popularity. The characters of the movie are great, and it is also not corny. In 2018, he and Ariane Grande dressed up in uniforms of Hogwartz when they were dating at that time. However, people began questioning if he was a fan or not when he admitted once to stop reading the series after Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Speaking out against author J.K. Rowling: Pete Davidson
Pete, during the most recent Saturday Night Live episode, addressed the hurtful comments made by author J.K. Rowling concerning the community of transgender. Pete does not support the author and her views, although he may be a fan of Harry Potter. Davidson rather described her comment as disappointing, and the worst thing she did was the Fantastic Beasts films. Pete said that the movies harmed all equally, and he is not doing any discrimination on them and also did not know that the author was going to go all Mel Gibson.
Furthermore, Pete jokingly said about the author that the one thing she cannot wrap her head around is the reality of Laverne Cox after creating a whole fantasy series with mythical creatures. He also felt a close connection to the movie, so the comment of the author has hurt him.
Controversial Remark: Author J.K. Rowling
Since June, author Rowling has been at the centre of the trans row after she suggests on Twitter that only women can mensurate. It is not her first time and has also made previously repeated transphobic comments due to which many people are thinking about them being fans of Harry Potter. Many Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts stars such as Emma Watson, Danielle Radcliffe, Eddie Redmayne, and Rupert Grint also denounced her comments.
