John Cleese Supports J.K. Rowling, Is Called Out for Transphobic Tweets

Famed actor John Cleese, who appeared in the first two Harry Potter movies as Nearly Headless Nick, among many other films over the years, is being called out for transphobic tweets.

It started with a tweet back in September where he supported JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books, who has made transphobic statements in the past.

Now, John has made some insensitive statements and is being called out for transphobic language on Twitter.

“Deep down, I want to be a Cambodian police woman. Is that allowed, or am I being unrealistic?” John said in one tweet when asked why he cannot “just let people be who they want to be.” John also admitted that he’s “not that interested in trans folks.”
