J.K. Rowling Apologizes After Wrongfully Accusing Donald Trump Of Ignoring Boy In Wheelchair

It’s no secret that J.K. Rowling doesn’t like U.S. President Donald Trump, and the “Harry Potter” author has taken to Twitter once again to express her disgust.

After sharing a video of Trump appearing to ignore a little boy in a wheelchair, Rowling wrote a quote from Maya Angelou, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.”

And she didn’t stop there, “Trump imitated a disabled reporter. Now he pretends not to see a child in a wheelchair, as though frightened he might catch his condition,” she tweeted.

“This monster of narcissism values only himself and his pale reflections. The disabled, minorities, transgender people, the poor, women (unless related to him by ties of blood, and therefore his creations) are treated with contempt because they do not resemble Trump,” she continued in a series of tweets.

New information has emerged, however, suggesting the video was deceptively edited. A new version of the video clearly shows Trump greeting the small child.

Rowling has yet to acknowledge the new information, but you can read more of her anti-Trump rant below.

Previously, Rowling slammed Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, by comparing the President’s face to a frog saying: “Well, kudos to Aesop.”

“It turns out ‘The Frogs Who Desired a King’ wasn’t a fable, it was an actual bloody prediction,” she said in another tweet.

After a non-edited video surfaced, the Twitterverse made Rowling aware of the inaccuracy of her tweet and she tweeted her regrets.

“Re: my tweets about the small boy in a wheelchair whose proferred hand the president appeared to ignore in press footage, mutiple sources have unformed me that that was not a full or accurate representation of their interaction,” she wrote. “I very clearly projected my own sensitivities around the issue of diabled people being overlooked or ignored onto the images I saw.

“To that boy or his family, I apologize unreservedly,” Rowling added. “These tweet will remain, but I will delete this previous ones on the subject.”
