JK Rowling apologises for accusing Donald Trump of ignoring a disabled boy after backlash


You know these days some people just want to jump into band wagon of Donald Trump's attacker and JK Rowling never wanted to be missing in action.

The Harry Potter author  had tweeted, “How stunning, and how horrible, that Trump cannot bring himself to shake the hand of a small boy who only wanted to touch the president,” the author wrote on Twitter.

She afterwards got a backlash from many and has not apologised for inappropriately accusing the President of ignoring a disabled boy.

She tweeted, “Re: my tweets about the small boy in a wheelchair whose proffered hand the president appeared to ignore in press footage.

“Multiple sources have informed me that that was not a full or accurate representation of their interaction.



“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.”
