Author J.K. Rowling was accused of making transphobic on Twitter over the weekend. The author of the Harry Potter series enraged several people with the comment on an article that stated that 1.8 billion people — girls, women, and gender non-binary people — menstruate. "People who menstruate. I am sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?" wrote Rowling.

This is not the first time Rowling is involved in controversy as last year she was criticised for showing support for Maya Forstater, a researcher who stated that people cannot change their biological sex.
