Bestselling author J.K. Rowling blasted popular streamer Vaush after he called for her to “shut the f*** up” in a Twitter post on Tuesday.

Rowling’s remarks came in response to Vaush’s Twitter attacks regarding her opposition to biological men who identify as women being placed in women’s prison facilities, a move proposed in a recent Scottish Gender Recognition Reform Bill.

“All JK Rowling had to do was shut the f*** up and she could have been almost uncritically beloved for like a century,” he wrote.

“Women be quieter and start apologizing challenge,” he added.

Rowling took to Twitter in a strong response that compared Vaush to her ex-husband.

“What you and your ilk fail to appreciate is how tediously familiar I find your tactics. I had a violent ex-husband who used to tell me life would be great if only I’d comply, but you’re making the same mistake he did. Women like me can’t be bullied out of resistance,” Rowling wrote.

Vaush was unrelenting in his response to Rowling’s public statement against him.

“Listen Joanne you don’t get to play the victim card when you’re the advocate for taking away women’s rights here,” he replied.

“Trans women are raped and killed in men’s facilities and you want to keep them there because of your trauma. Quit making your feelings other people’s oppression,” he added.

Vaush has been noted as a controversial streamer over remarks he has made about sexuality. A past video documented the streamer saying every man has masturbated to animated child porn.

In another streaming video, Vaush was recorded in a stream talking about sexual relationships between adults and minors, saying, “it is possible for an adult and a child to have a sexual relationship and for it to have positive outcomes on the child as well. … However, categorically, we discourage those relationships because as a rule it is substantially more likely that enabling them would cause harm in society.”

Rowling, known for penning the bestselling “Harry Potter” series of novels, has come under attacks from the Left in recent years over her opposition to some transgender issues, noting concerns that certain transgender “rights” actually harm women’s rights.

In December, the author stirred controversy after criticizing the Scottish police force for allowing rape suspects to self-identify as female. The Daily Wire reported:

Rowling responded to an article from The Times of London on Sunday, titled, “‘Absurdity’ of police logging rapists as women.”

“War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman,” Rowling tweeted.

“Police have been criticized for saying they will record rapes by offenders with male genitalia as being committed by a woman if the attacker ‘identifies as a female,’” reported The Times. “Police Scotland said that they would log rapes as being carried out by a woman if the accused person insists, even if they have not legally changed gender.”

This issue was originally reported by ​​The Scottish Sun, who said that, “former Holyrood Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill” described the move as “absurd.”
