Harry Potter author JK Rowling is facing backlash on social media once again after the release of her new book. #RIPJKRowling trends on social media. 

JK Rowling, 55, has written a book called ‘Troubled Blood’ has been released on Tuesday. The book involves a male serial killer who dresses as a woman while on violent killing sprees.

Troubled blood features detective, Cormoran Strike, as he investigates a cisgender male serial killer who dons women’s clothing to kill female victims.

However, the author received backlash as the hashtag #RIPJKRowling is trending on social media. She received the same criticism earlier after making controversial comments about the transgender community.

Twitteratis claim the author has destroyed her career.

One twitter user wrote, “In memory of JK Rowling. She ain’t dead, but she killed her own career by proudly hating trans people & no one would really miss her that much anyway.”

“#RIPJKRowling she (ain’t) dead but her career is,” added another.

“Imagine getting canceled so hard, we have to pretend that you died,” chimed in someone else.
