Vladimir Putin likens himself to JK rowling and claims he’s being ‘cancelled.


Russian leader Vladimir Putin made a bizarre comparison to Harry Potter author JK Rowling in a bizarre rant. He said that he was being “being” rather than “being”. “cancelled”She was just the same as before, and she also added that “cancel culture”It’s the same as Nazis trying books to be burned in the 1930s.

Putin claimed that Ms Rowling had been cancelled “just because she didn’t satisfy the demands of gender rights”.

He spoke in Russia during a video-call with Russian officials and cultural workers. “They are now trying to cancel our country.

“”Progressive discrimination of all things to do Russia” is what I am referring to.

He also said that there was a campaign against Russian composers like Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov.

Comparing “culture warriors” to Nazis lining up to burn books in the 1930s, he said: ”We remember the footage when they were burning books,” he said.

“It’s impossible to imagine such an event in our country, and our culture provides us with insurance against it.

“And it’s inseparable for us from our motherland, from Russia, where there is no place for ethnic intolerance, where for centuries representatives from dozens of ethnic groups have been living together.”

J.K. Rowling faced criticism in June 2020 when she posted a number of tweets which provoked anger among transgender people.

Her opinions proved highly controversial, with stars like Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and Eddie Redmayne – who had all appeared in films based on her characters – to speak out against her.

Many of Rowling’s fans turned on her, posting videos to TikTok showing them burning their collection of Harry Potter books.

In one example, TikTok user @elmcdo explained as they burned their books: ”While the reader’s perspective is an important part of interpretation and meaning, it is impossible to completely divorce a work from its creator.”

“Despite Rowling’s positive influence on millions of readers, this does not negate the negative impact Rowling’s hateful lobbying has had on the trans community.

“This doesn’t even touch on the harmful fatphobia, racism and valorisation of supremacists and child abusers in her most famous work.”
