J.K. Rowling goofs — “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling spent her birthday Monday apologizing for posting a narrowed videoclip misrepresenting President Trump as ignoring a boy with a disability.
The video showed Trump seemingly brushing off 3-year-old Montgomery Weer. The author said it was “horrible” that Trump couldn’t “bring himself to shake the hand of a small boy who wanted to touch the President.” She also referred to the President as a “monster of narcissism” who “values only himself and his pale reflections.”
Extended videos surfaced showing the President crouching down to talk to the child. His mother also posted on Facebook, “If someone can please get a message to JK Rowling: Trump didn’t snub my son & Monty wasn’t even trying to shake his hand,” according to The New York Post.
“I very clearly projected my own sensitivities around the issue of disabled people being overlooked or ignored onto the images I saw and if that caused any distress to that boy or his family, I apologise unreservedly. These tweets will remain, but I will delete the previous ones on the subject,” Rowling wrote.
