The Harry Potter creator took to Twitter to condemn their actions, while thanking the police for their help with the matter.
The author said in her Tweets: “Last Friday, my family’s address was posted on Twitter by three activist actors who took pictures of themselves in front of our house, carefully positioning themselves to ensure that our address was visible.”
“I want to say a massive thank you to everybody who reported the image to Twitter Support. Your kindness and decency made all the difference to my family and me.”
“I’d also like to thank @PoliceScotland for their support and assistance in this matter.”
“I implore those people who retweeted the image with the address still visible, even if they did so in condemnation of these people’s actions, to delete it.”
She also went on to list some women with no public profiles who ‘have been subject to campaigns of intimidation which range from being hounded on social media, the targeting of their employers, all the way up to doxxing and direct threats of violence, including rape’.
She continued: “None of these women are protected in the way I am. They and their families have been put into a state of fear and distress for no other reason than that they refuse to uncritically accept that the socio-political concept of gender identity should replace that of sex.”
Rowling then commented on the activists’ intentions, saying that she ‘assumes they thought it would intimidate her out of speaking on the issue’.
She finished off by writing: “I’ve now received so many death threats I could paper the house with them, and I haven’t stopped speaking out.”
“Perhaps – and I’m just throwing this out there – the best way to prove your movement isn’t a threat to women, is to stop stalking, harassing and threatening us.”
