Rowling apologizes over Trump tweets
    2017-August-3  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

“HARRY POTTER” author J.K. Rowling has apologized to the family of a wheelchair-bound boy for tweets in which she accused U.S. President Donald Trump of ignoring his proffered hand at a media event.

Rowling branded Trump a “monster of narcissism” after footage of a July 24 news conference on healthcare showed the president seemingly ignoring the 3-year-old’s hand, but shaking other people’s as he left the event.

Footage of Trump’s entrance to the event, however, showed the president stop to greet the boy and have a brief exchange before he began speaking.

Saying she had discovered that what she had seen was not an accurate representation of the encounter, Rowling tweeted: “I very clearly projected my own sensitivities around the issue of disabled people being overlooked or ignored onto the images I saw.”

Rowling has over 11 million Twitter followers. In the three days that elapsed between her original tweets July 28 and her apology, she had been the subject of online criticism, much of it from Trump supporters, for her comments on the incident.
