Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid in the “Harry Potter” film series, has defended JK Rowling against accusations of transphobia, arguing that her critics are “waiting to be offended.”

“I don’t think what she said was offensive really,” Coltrane said during an interview with the Radio Times that was seen by Pink News. “I don’t know why, but there’s a whole Twitter generation of people who hang around waiting to be offended. They wouldn’t have won the war, would they?”

He added: “That’s me talking like a grumpy old man, but you just think: ‘Oh, get over yourself. Wise up, stand up straight, and carry on.'”

Coltrane then continued to say he did not want to speak on the issue any further “because of all the hate mail and all that s— which I don’t need at my time of life.”
