JK must be Scowling. Staff at the Hachette Book Group are refusing to work on the TERF’s new pile of tripe because of her recent hate speech. Publishing company staff aren’t easily replaced, so this one will make a dent.

The staff at the Hatchette Book Group publishing company are reportedly rebelling against working on J.K. Rowling’s new children’s book, The Ickabog, because of her continued transphobic screeds.
[. . .]
“Staff in the children’s department at Hachette announced they were no longer prepared to work on the book,” said one source. “They said they were opposed to her comments and wanted to show support for the trans lobby.”
Another said, “It was a handful of staff, and they are entitled to their views…. But this is a children’s fairy tale. It is not the end of the world. They will all be having chats with their managers.”
This tells me they haven’t read it yet. They’re objecting to her past hate and ignorance online, not the newest hate and ignorance told through allegory in a book.
