Legendary “Star Wars” actor and prominent Hollywood liberal Mark Hamill is in hot water on Twitter for having recently liked a tweet posted by J.K. Rowling. The “Harry Potter” author has, for years, been facing the wrath of cancel culture due to tweets repeatedly saying that biological sex is not a social construct.
Now, Hamill, the 71-year-old actor who played Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars” series of movies, found himself the target of an internet firestorm for merely liking a cheeky comment from Rowling on Twitter.
The row began on Sunday when Rowling responded to a provocative tweet aimed at her from India Willoughby, the U.K.’s first “transgender newsreader.”
Willoughby, a biological male, wrote, “I’m more of a woman than J.K. Rowling ever will be.”
Rowling, quote tweeted Willoughby’s post and commented, “Citation needed,” suggesting the need there for evidence.
After facing backlash for “liking” the tweet, Hamill explained, “What I ‘liked’ about this exchange was someone speaking their truth to power. Twitter is, unfortunately, no place for nuance.
“It’s imperative I make this abundantly clear: I support human rights for EVERYONE, regardless of their gender identity, PERIOD.”

Meanwhile, Twitter account @MasteroftheTDS compiled images of tweets slamming Hamill for the “like.”
One asked, “@MarkHamill why are you hitting the ‘like’ button for JKR’s transphobic hate crusade?”
Mark Hamill likes a tweet of J.K. Rowling and the internet loses their minds as usual. Claiming he has done this once before so this isn’t an accident and he obviously supports transphobia.
