A Harry Potter campaign has been launched by the New York Times, but it doesn’t include JK Rowling. One of the biggest franchises across the globe, the wizarding world, started with Rowling publishing the first book, The Sorcerer’s Stone, in 1997. The books were made into movies that starred Daniel Radcliffe in the titular role.

Emma Watson took up the role of Hermoine Granger and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley. Recently, the cast and crew celebrated the 20th anniversary since the first movie was released through a reunion special. Fans, who were as excited as the actors, came together to reminisce about the old days on the sets of the eight HP movies.

Now, a Harry Potter campaign by the New York Times has caught the attention of the fans as it does not include JK Rowling, the genius behind the wizarding world. The author was also missing from the reunion, and her clips from old interviews were used. For the unversed, Rowling has publicly expressed her views that have been perceived as transphobic due to her insinuation that trans women are not women.

As reported by Giant Freakin Robot, the New York Times campaign has been going viral on Twitter by those who spotted it in the subway trains as an electronic billboard. The campaign was reportedly done to promote independent journalism. It features a woman and reads, “Imagining Harry Potter Without Its Creator.”

Many people have expressed their thoughts over not including JK Rowling in the ad campaign. While there was one person showing support for this decision, there are many of those who don’t. Check out a few reactions below:
