Bonnie Wright is making it clear that she does not agree with J.K. Rowling's anti-trans tweets. The Harry Potter star has just shared a short yet fitting message of belonging for trans people.

Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in all of the Harry Potter films, recently took to Twitter to post about her own views after Rowling's transphobic tweets. Check it out below.

"If Harry Potter was a source of love and belonging for you, that love is infinite and there to take without judgment or question. Transwomen are Women. I see and love you, Bonnie x," Wright wrote.

Wright's message is in line with Daniel Radcliffe's previous statement where he acknowledged how Rowling has changed his life but firmly disagrees with her tweets.

"Transgender women are women," Radcliffe said. "Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I."

Rowling previously shared an article on Twitter and criticized how it refused to call "people who menstruate" as women. Several netizens pointed out that trans people also menstruate but Rowling firmly stood by her comments.

Wright and Radcliffe are not the only ones sharing their thoughts on Rowling's tweets. Warner Bros. recently issued a statement about the anti-trans comments, making it clear that they believe in inclusion.
