J.K. Rowling ignites renewed fury with latest book featuring a serial killer who cross dresses

An early review of the book from The Telegraph has sparked additional criticism and outrage directed towards the Harry Potter author

J.K. Rowling is trending on social media again following an early review from The Telegraph about her new book "Troubled Blood", penned under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

The fifth installment in the "Cormoran Strike" detective series, Troubled Blood features a male serial killer who dresses up as a woman.

According to the review written by Jake Kerridge, the plot is centred around the disappearance of a woman in 1974 and it's believed a "transvestite serial killer" is behind the cold case.

Kerridge writes: One wonders what critics of Rowlings stance on trans issues will make of a book whose moral seems to be: never trust a man in a dress.

Following the review, #RIPJKRowling began to trend on Twitter, with those unhappy with J.K. Rowling's comments about the trans community becoming even more furious.

Many have accused the Harry Potter author of being transphobic following a string of controversial comments she made from back in June.

The mounting accusations blew up when Rowling voiced her view of an op-ed piece that used "people who menstraute" in its title.

A number of actors associated with the Harry Potter universe have since spoken out on behalf of the transgender community, including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

In a lenghty personal essay, Rowling defended her comments and outlined why she felt the need to speak up.
