An online mob descended upon Harry Potter author JK Rowling, accusing her of being transphobic for featuring a transvestite killer in her latest novel.

Rowling’s latest effort, Troubled Blood — written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith — was released on Tuesday and centres around a fictional cold-case of a woman who was murdered in 1974 by a man who has a fetish for wearing female clothes.

The new character in the Cormoran Strike series, Dennis Creed, “fetishes women’s clothing… and disguises himself as a woman to trick the person he’s abducting”, a publishing source told The Sun.

The online outrage mob picked up on a review of the book in the Sunday Telegraph, by Jake Kerridge who wrote: “One wonders what critics of Rowling’s stance on trans issues will make of a book whose moral seems to be: never trust a man in a dress.”

Celebrities and activists quickly took to social media to denounce Rowling as a ‘transphobe’ for writing the plotline, causing the hashtag #RIPJKRowling to trend on Twitter, forcing the tech giant to add a disclaimer to notify the public that the Harry Potter author was still alive.

Former Nickelodeon actress and singer Kira Kosarin wrote: “RIP JK Rowling, she’s not dead, we just don’t acknowledge transphobes in this house.”
