The dictator who murders civilians and poisons his rivals to death has come out in defense of the idiotic anti-trans Harry Potter author for being “canceled” by the west, in case you were wondering how much more insane things could get in the world right now. Via Deadline:

Russian premier Vladimir Putin has delivered a TV address in which he claimed the West is “trying to cancel” his country.

During a deranged-sounding rant, translated and broadcast by Sky News, Putin at one point said that Harry Potter author JK Rowling had been similarly cancelled “just because she didn’t satisfy the demands of gender rights”.

Rowling has become a controversial figure due her to public opinions on transgender people, with numerous comments across the last few years drawing widespread criticism including from the stars of the Harry Potter films.

“They are now trying to cancel our country. I’m talking about the progressive discrimination of everything to do with Russia,” he commented in the TV broadcast, stating that there was a campaign against Russian composers.

I’m not sure if it’s a translation issue or if he really thinks her name is “Joan” Rowling (or it could be a mispronunciation of her name, Joanne), but here’s video of the psychotic rant:
