Eddie Redmayne Calls Out ‘Vitriol’ Against Jk Rowling After Author’s Transgender Comments: ‘Absolutely Disgusting’

Eddie Redmayne Calls Out ‘Vitriol’ Against Jk Rowling After Author’s Transgender Comments: ‘Absolutely Disgusting’
Eddie Redmayne defended J.K. Rowling after the author was slammed in recent months following her comments about transgender people, but he added that he disagreed with her on the issue.

In an interview with the Daily Mail in support of his latest film, Aaron Sorkin’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” the Oscar winner was asked about his thoughts on the “Harry Potter” author’s comments against trans individuals. Rowling was condemned by trans activists after she voiced concern over trans women being allowed access to single-sex spaces earlier this year and faced a new wave of backlash this month after her latest book, “Troubled Blood,” based its plot around a doctor believed to have been murdered by a cross-dressing man.

Redmayne said that he strongly disagreed with Rowling’s views, saying that trans people are “having their human rights challenged around the world and facing discrimination on a daily basis.

Why Netflix Cut ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ From ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ Credits

Why Netflix Cut ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ From ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ Credits
The re-dubbed version of cult-classic ’90s anime series “Neon Genesis Evangelion” hit Netflix on Friday, but as many fans quickly noticed, its iconic “Fly Me to the Moon” outro wasn’t along for the ride — at least not in all territories.

Instead of hearing Karaoke-style covers of the Frank Sinatra hit, which is what was originally used for the series’ closing credits, U.S. subscribers were treated to a piano version of another track from the show’s score. “Fly Me to the Moon” was also replaced in other parts of episodes where it was originally included as background music.

However, Twitter users noted that this change isn’t universal, as Netflix Japan’s version of “Neon Genesis Evangelion” does have the original outro music.
