J.K. Rowling, famous author best known for writing the “Harry Potter” series, bashed President Donald Trump in a series of tweets on Friday, July 28th. The outrage came after false video footage was released of the president “ignoring” a young boy in a wheelchair.
The video shows the little boy reaching for Trump’s hand, which he appeared to not shake. However, the footage was edited to make it seem as though Trump ignored him. Unedited footage proves Trump did indeed shake the little boy’s hand first before making his round to meet the other guests.
Watch both videos below. The first video shows the edited footage, presenting Trump in a false and negative manner. The second video demonstrates what actually happened.
In relation to the edited video clip, Rowling expressed her frustrations towards the president on Twitter in a series of 8 different tweets. In her posts, she called him a “monster” and “narcissistic.”
Rowling definitely should have "fact checked" before going on a rant against the president. Many other twitter users commented on her getting upset over false information.
J.K. Rowling isn’t the only well-known name to bash President Donald Trump recently. Trump has been under fire lately by various Hollywood names, especially dealing with the topic of transgender rights. What do you think about this? Share your thoughts in our Facebook comments! Thank you!
