J.K. Rowling has slammed trolls for sending her death threats on social media over her controversial views on transgender women.

The Harry Potter author attracted criticism after she raised “concern” about the “huge explosion in young women wishing to transition”.

She tweeted: “‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”

Her views were slammed by stars including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Eddie Redmayne, but Rowling refused to apologize and defended her comments, insisting: “If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction.”

But fans didn’t buy her theory, leading to numerous threats on social media, which the writer highlighted in a recent Twitter post.

A screenshot shared by Rowling reads, “I wish you a very nice pipebomb in mailbox,” but the star insisted attempts to “cancel her” have actually had the opposite effect.

“To be fair, when you can’t get a woman sacked, arrested or dropped by her publisher, and cancelling her only made her book sales go up, there’s really only one place to go,” she quipped.

When one user asked if the threat was linked to her controversial comments, she added: “Yes, but now hundreds of trans activists have threatened to beat, rape, assassinate and bomb me I’ve realized that this movement poses no risk to women whatsoever.”

However, she didn’t seem fazed by the negative response, and ended the interaction by saying: “Got to get back to my chapter now, but to all the people sending me beautiful, kind, funny and supportive messages, thank you so much.”
