JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, has hit back on Twitter after a death threat was levelled against her.
It came after the author told another user "we will win" in response to them offering to stand by her in the face of criticism over her views.
Alongside a screenshot of the threat, Rowling said: "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 added: "Yes, but now hundreds of trans activists have threatened to beat, rape, assassinate and bomb me I've realised that this movement poses no risk to women whatsoever.
"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."
Rowling, who sometimes writes under the pseudonym Robert Gailbraith, has repeatedly expressed opinions that would be considered gender-critical, drawing condemnation from some LGBTQ+ groups.
