The famous writer continues to be harassed on social media because of her posts in which she spoke unflatteringly about members of the transgender community.

“Yes, but now hundreds of trans activists are threatening to beat me up, rape me, kill me and blow me up. I’ve learned that this movement poses no risk to women,” the writer parried. She also thanked fans for the “kind, funny and encouraging messages.
