Explained the spokeswoman, “JK Rowling was approached to talk about her extensive charitable work in Ukraine, supporting children and families who have been affected by the current conflict in the region. The video, which has been edited, is a distorted representation of the conversation.”

J.K. Rowling was informed by the fictitious Zelenskyy in a 12-minute video of the joke that Harry Potter’s well-known forehead scare is similar to the “Z” mark that the Russian military has put on tanks and other weaponry.

Rowling said, “I will look into that, might be good for me to do something with that myself on social media because I think that will get into the newspapers,” to the jokers’ request that she change Harry’s scar to a more pro-Ukraine one.

I’m referring to the growing discrimination against anything remotely related to Russia, which is taking place in a number of Western countries with the full knowledge and sometimes encouragement of the ruling elites. The infamous cancel culture has evolved into a cancellation of culture.”
