Hogwarts Legacy: JKRowling responds to calls to boycott the game


JK Rowling commented on calls for a boycott of Hogwarts Legacy on Twitter. For the first time, the famous writer has exposed her thoughts on the boycott campaign of the game that appeared following the accusations of transphobia that have been leveled against her.


Rowling took the opportunity to have her say starting from the statements of Jessie Earl : the famous content creator and activist for transgender rights defined the attitude taken by those as “harmful”, while condemning the positions expressed by Rowling on these themes, will still buy Hogwarts Legacy.

Deeply disappointed that Jessie Earl doesn’t realize that ‘pure thought’ is incompatible with owning ANY thing related to me, in ANY form – JKRowling replied in an early tweet – The truly righteous wouldn’t just burn their books and movies, but also the local library, anything with an owl on it and their pet dogs.”

In a  second tweet , Rowling quotes a comment from another user who wrote: “ If you have DVDs or books, live your life. You’ve already bought them and you’ve already paid for them. You can read them in your free time, no one needs to know. But don’t stream the movies, don’t buy merch, don’t buy the games . “

JK Rowling has therefore commented, writing: “ And as for this, I am baffled. This individual is actually in support of reading the books because “no one needs to know.” All good until you get drunk and accidentally mention one, son. “I’ve never done this in public” won’t save you when the police see your Hufflepuff socks. 


Before leaving you, we remind you that Hogwarts Legacy will be available from February 10  on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S, from  April 4  on PS4 and Xbox One and from  July 25  on Nintendo Switch.
