JK Rowling accused of anti-Semitism in Jon Stewart’s Harry Potter books

Former American talk show host Jon Stewart has denounced JK Rowling for the “anti-Semitic” images used in the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

The comedian said it was “so bizarre” that people didn’t react to the “Jews” who ran the Gringotts underground wizarding bank.

It comes as the world-renowned writer faces yet another backlash against her views on transgender rights.

Stewart discussed the scenes set in the magic bank, run by goblins, on the The Problem with Jon Stewart podcast.

“Speaking to people, this is what I say, ‘Have you ever seen a Harry Potter movie? Have you ever seen the scenes from Gringotts Bank? ‘ “, did he declare.

“‘Do you know who these people who run the bank are? The Jews!’

“Let me show you this – these are the Sages of Zion protocols, I just want to show you a caricature, and they’re like, ‘Oh, that’s from’ Harry Potter ‘.

“And you’re like, ‘No, it’s a caricature of a Jew from an anti-Semitic text. ”

“JK Rowling was like, ‘Can we get these guys to run our bank? ”

“It’s a wizarding world… we can ride dragons, you can have a pet owl… but who should run the bank?” The Jews.”

Describing watching the movie in theaters, he added, “It was one of those things where I saw it on screen and I expected the crowd to say, ‘Holy s ** t , (Rowling) didn’t, in a wizarding world just throw some Jews in there to run the f ***** g underground bank.

“And everyone was like, ‘wizards.’ It was so weird.

Rowling appeared on a recent Harry Potter 20th anniversary reunion special, but only in archival video clips.

Since the films’ release, she has become a controversial figure for her comments on gender identity and has drawn criticism from many, including franchise stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe.

Rowling’s reps said the author will not comment on Stewart’s remarks.
