Daniel Radcliffe is standing up for what he believes in, going against JK Rowling who posted a bunch of anti-trans tweets.
Rowling made Radcliffe famous by casting him as the lead role in the Harry Potter film series, based on her seven books.
The author has been the subject of backlash for taking to Twitter over the weekend to share her views.
In response to an opinion piece, Rowling ripped out the editor for trying to be inclusive with the phrase 'people who menstruate'. She retweeted the article saying, "'People who menstruate.' I'm sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?"
This received a negative response from the Twitter community and unfortunately, Rowling dug herself a deeper hole firing back with "If sex isn't real, there's no same-sex attraction. If sex isn't real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn't hate to speak the truth".
Although, this is not Rowling's first brush with controversy as she has become wrapped up in similar transphobic slights in the past.
In a bold move, Radcliffe decided to use his celebrity status to oust Rowling. His reply came in the form of an open letter published on 'The Trevor Project' an LGBTQ youth charity website.
Radcliffe took the stance the spat was not between him and Rowling, but rather focused on the bigger picture of people who identify as transgender.
"I realize that certain press outlets will probably want to paint this as in-fighting between JK Rowling and myself but that is really not what this is about, nor is it what's important right now."
Radcliffe then told a tale of the discrimination transgender and nonbinary young people face on a daily basis, urging others to join him on the journey of learning how to support these people.
"Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the indentity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I."
Radcliffe also made the decision to apologise on behalf of the Harry Potter franchise, encouraging readers to keep the magic of the novels between them and the pages of the books.
"It means to you want it means to you and I hope that these comments will not taint that too much".
