Famous People Rally Around JKR Because Death Threats

Confirmed that JKR has received death threats. Ugh.

That said, receiving death threats doesn't mean you're right; it just means that any movement is going to contain, or be used as cover by, assholes... and if you make people fear for their livelihoods by threatening their rights and inciting hatred of them, you're likely to get some of them lashing out verbally.

This bit of the letter, though --

Rowling has consistently shown herself to be an honourable and compassionate person...

-- is quite untrue. JKR has misrepresented both her own actions and those who oppose them, as well as numerous facts around the issue. These are not the actions of an honourable person.
