J.K. Rowling after sparking chaos earlier has wreaked havoc on social media once again after the release of her new book which has been labelled 'transphobic'. 

The once-revered Harry Potter writer has irked her fans with the release of her book, titled Troubled Blood.

Following her controversial comments of transgender women, her freshly-released book encircles a cross-dressing serial killer.

The writer was berated on social media as users were out for blood, trending the hashtag #RIPJKRowling on Twitter.

One user commented: “In memory of jk rowling. she ain’t dead, but she killed her own career by proudly hating trans people & no one would really miss her that much anyway.”

“#RIPJKRowling she [ain’t] dead but her career is,” a second user remarked.

The hashtag certainly left a lot of people bemused who thought the writer had actually died, after which Twitter had to issue a clarification about Rowling still being alive.
