J.K. Rowling returns Ripple of Hope award over criticism of transgender stance

The Harry Potter author rejected the suggestion she was transphobic and said the clash of views left her “no option” but to return the prestigious human rights award.

“I am deeply saddened that RFKHR has felt compelled to adopt this stance,” she wrote.

“But no award or honour, no matter my admiration for the person for whom it was named, means so much to me that I would forfeit the right to follow the dictates of my own conscience.”
