Tom Felton liked a transphobic tweet by JKR. This is suspicious because Tom has liked less than 100 tweets, so when he likes a tweet he does it with thought first. he said only unlike the tweet, after receiving backlash.
He has also offended the trans community by continuing to praise JKR and feed off of Harry Potter franchise. in his recent 19 year reunion, he called JKR a genius, which she is not, because of problematic writing.
Tom Felton has also repeatedly refused to denounce himself an JKR‘s transphobia, which most of the main cast has. Every time he’s in an interview or with a fan, and someone asks his opinions on JKR’s transphobia, he tends to change the subject or or he will say that he “doesn’t wanna get caught up in anything”. It hurts the trans community because silence is often siding with the oppressor.
Reminder if you are cisgender (meaning you identify with the gender you were born as) you do not get to say whether or not you are offended by Tom’s actions. Most of the trans community has made it clear that they do not support Tom Felton because of his actions.
Sean biggerstaff is best known for playing Oliver Wood in the Harry Potter series. He is recently made multiple holocaust jokes, which I will not include in this card, for they might be triggering to some. Every time a Jewish person comes forward and tells him that he is being inappropriate and anti-Semitic, he gaslights them and tells him that they shouldn’t be upset over it. He also believes many harmful Jewish stereotypes and anti-Semitic lies which he posts about on his Twitter. Sean biggerstaff also often belittles Jews who try and combat antisemitism.
If you have, questions, anything you would like to include, or if you have reasonable feedback on this carrd, please feel free to message me on tiktok at @swaggzone, and please, make it worth my time.

Why i dont support
JKR, Tom felton, Sean biggerstaff
JKR has made many transphobic, homophobic, anti-semitic, and racist actions through the harry potter books and her social media.
JKR has made made multiple tweets in the recent years giving opinions of her incorrect ideologies on trans people. Multiple Statements regarding biology and science, that are incorrect and transphobic. JKR has supported and boosted many transphobic shops that promote TERFs (Trans exclusionary radical feminists) which of course is harmful to the trans community.
In the Harry Potter Books, JKR neglects her ability to include diversity, and when she does, its stereotypical and harmful. Most of her asian characters are stereotyped and put into ravenclaw, “the smart house” which perpetuates the stereotype that all asian people are smart. Not to mention Cho Chang’s name alone. Dean Thomas, 1/3 of her canonically black characters is known for not having a dad. One of her other Black characters Kingsley Shacklebolt, is inappropriately named, as “Shackles” can be tied to slavery.
in the harry potter books J. K. Rowling wrote the goblins in as the bank tellers. goblins are unfortunately often known Jewish caricature, and they are written as greedy for money, which also is another incorrect jewish stereotype.
Remus Lupin from the Harry Potter books is
A werewolf of course, and JKR wrote an analogy comparing Lupin’s lycanthropy to homosexuality. She makes Lupin’s identity out to be something that he needs to be ashamed of,and has to hide. Werewolves in the Harry Potter series are also known for often attacking children which is yet again another harmful stereotype that JKR decides to include.
