JK Rowling reacts perfectly to Daily Mail attacking Brexit judge for being ‘openly gay’

JK Rowling supports High Court judge

JK Rowling has reacted perfectly to the Daily Mail attacking a judge for being ‘openly gay’.

Yesterday, Sir Terence Etherton was named alongside two other High Court judges who ruled Prime Minister Theresa May must have parliamentary approval before triggering Article 50 to remove the UK from the European Union.

The nation voted on Brexit in June: 48.1% voted remain and 51.9% voted leave. It triggered an economic downturn, the resignation of David Cameron, and international instability.

In a story attacking the judges posted on MailOnline, the headline said: ‘The judges who blocked Brexit: One founded a EUROPEAN law group, another charged the taxpayer millions for advice and the third is an openly gay ex-Olympic fencer’.

The third was a reference to Sir Terence.

The Daily Mail then dedicated its front page today, branding them ‘Enemies of the People’.

But, as Rowling pointed out, it’s not like Sir Terence has much to worry about.

Sir Terence was the first gay man to be a senior judge in the UK when he was sworn in as a Lord Justice of Appeal in 2008.

The Mail later removed any reference to his sexuality in the article.

But before they did, Rowling was not the first one to do some mocking.
