Harry Potter Star Robbie Coltrane Insulted By Trans Community Immediately After His Death

Transgender activists showed their “character” on social media after well-loved actor Robbie Coltrane of “Harry Potter” fame died on Friday. Because Coltrane once dared to defend Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling from criticism from the trans community, he was ruthlessly insulted immediately after news of his untimely passing broke.

Most famous for his recurring role as Rubeus Hagrid in the Harry Potter movies based on Rowling’s books, Coltrane defended the fantastically successful author when she was attacked by a flock of transgender activists.

In September 2020, in response to severe attacks on Rowling, Coltrane said what the author said was not actually offensive. He went on to say at the time: “I don’t know why but there’s a whole Twitter generation of people who hang around waiting to be offended. They wouldn’t have won the war, would they?”

He went on to say that the Twitter army should get over themselves, “wise up,” stand upright and get on with their lives. But he said he really didn’t want to get involved because of hate mail and backlash from the crowd of social media tyrants, which he said he was too old to deal with.

After the news of Coltrane’s death was released on Friday, that Twitter army of transgender snowflakes went into action.

One user wrote that since he defended Rowling “in her transphobia,” they were “glad to know the world has one less transphobe today because of his passing.”

Another posted: “Robbie Coltrane was a privileged transphobe that uplifted Joanne’s violent transphobic campaign. I hope he rots in whatever hells exist.”

Fellow Harry Potter actor Emma Watson, who has played Hermione Granger, countered the hatred with loving comments for Coltrane. She said that it made sense that he played a giant in the film series because “his talent was so immense.” Watson added that he could “fill any space with his brilliance.”

Rowling wrote a warm remembrance of Coltrane after his passing. Saying she would never know anyone “remotely like Robbie again,” she described him as an incredible talent and a “complete one off.” She offered her love and deepest condolences to his family and especially his children.

Coltrane was 72 years old.
