Saturday Night Live made another dig at Harry Potter author JK Rowling over her controversial views on trans rights in scenes that aired last night.

Not long after host Adele joked about her weight loss and dished an update on her album in the opening monologue, Kate McKinnon ripped into the writer during a psychic reading sketch.

The comedian portrayed Madame Viveld, a psychic hired by Adele and her friends so they can discover what antics 2020 has in store for them.

Madame Vivelda shared a number of her visions with the Rolling In The Deep hitmaker, Bowen Yang, Heidi Gardner and Ego Nwodim, including Heidi’s boyfriend washing a bag of Doritos with soap.

She also revealed Adele wouldn’t be attending any concerts and instead would be ordering adult colouring in books and colouring in all day, every day.

At the end of the reading, Madame Vivelda shared one last message: ‘If any of you see JK Rowling, tell her…stick to the books!’

Kate’s dig comes just one week after Pete Davidson ripped into the author for her comments on transgender issues.

Rowling has been accused of being ‘transphobic’, although she has insisted she is not. 

In June this year, Rowling, in response to the phrase ‘people who menstruate’, argued that same-sex attraction and the reality of women are erased if ‘sex isn’t real’. 

She later defended her views and penned a lengthy essay explaining why she spoke out.

More recently, she has liked a tweet opposing a ban on conversion therapy, claimed there is a conflict between ‘the radical trans movement and women’s rights’, and she has handed back a human rights award after having her views questioned.

‘As a longstanding donor to LGBT charities and a supporter of trans people’s right to live free of persecution, I absolutely refute the accusation that I hate trans people or wish them ill, or that standing up for the rights of women is wrong, discriminatory, or incites harm or violence to the trans community,’ Rowling said in a statement as she addressed handing back the award.

‘Like the vast majority of the people who’ve written to me, I feel nothing but sympathy towards those with gender dysphoria, and agree with the clinicians and therapists who’ve got in touch who want to see a proper exploration of the factors that lead to it.

‘They – along with a growing number of other experts and whistleblowers – are critical of the “affirmative” model being widely adopted, and are also concerned about the huge rise in the numbers of girls wanting to transition.’
