J.K. Rowling has yet to respond to the tremendous support several Twitter users showed her last week by pledging to buy plane tickets for refugees to fly out to her many mansions throughout the world.
Now, a Change.org petition is imploring the pro-open border writer to take in no less than 18 un-vetted refugees.
The plea reads as follows.
J.K. Rowling has often announced her solidarity with Middle-Eastern refugees on twitter. She is well-known advocate of open borders and often stated, that Europe has the duty to give every single one of these refugees from all over the middle east, rarely warzones, asylum and welfare.
Everyone who represented a different opinion was viciously attacked by her, and she is not alone. Many other multi-millionaires and billionaires seem to be fond of virtue-signaling about refugees.
Since she is a sheltered member of the rich elite, who is very much disconnected from the ugly reality of rape, murder and destruction which many of these refugees bring with them, we think that it is time for her to show some true solidarity.
J.K. Rowling has 18 spare bedrooms in her mansions in Britain and could easily give 18 refugees a long-time housing, not to mention the space available on her giant property to erect refugee shelters.
The petition – like last week’s pledge for airplane tickets – has garnered incredible support online.
As of 19 minutes ago, the petition hit 20,000 signatures. Many people who signed the petition were also sure to include a note with their reasoning.
Will Rowling finally respond? The internet is waiting.
