Row Over Rowling

From the Evening Standard:

Piers Morgan has defended JK Rowling over her controversial new novel, despite previously butting heads with the author on social media.

On Good Morning Britain this morning, Morgan dismissed calls to boycott Rowling over her new novel Troubled Blood, which features a male character who disguises himself as a woman to commit a crime.

Addressing journalist Benjamin Butterworth, Morgan said: “I interview real killers of all shapes and sizes and genders, if I was to write a book tomorrow, it’s your position that I would not be allowed to make it a transgender killer?

“Because that doesn’t seem very equal to me. If you’re battling for equality, surely criminals in novels could be transgender?”
