J.K. Rowling clarified to host Graham Norton that her absence wasn’t due to a lack of invitation. She stated:  “I was asked to be on that, and I decided I didn’t want to do it. I thought it was about the films more than the books, quite rightly. That was what the anniversary was about. No one said don’t [do it]…I was asked to do it and I decided not to”, via People.

Rowling’s absence from the reunion special was widely assumed to be related to the issue surrounding her transphobic remarks, which were condemned by the actors of the Harry Potter films as well. The author also discussed her use of social media in the recent interview, specifically addressing the recent death threat she received after tweeting about Salman Rushdie. She stated: “I try to behave online as I would like others to behave… I’ve never threatened anyone.”
