The new movie in the Harry Potter franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald, is being called "the most controversial" yet. It also opened with the lowest ticket sales in the history of the series. So what happened?
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, a vocal "progressive," is now being accused of not being progressive enough. Left-wing fans are complaining that the gay characters aren't gay enough, that accused abuser Johnny Depp is one of the stars, and that the movie "perpetuates stereotypes about Asian women."
