OMG! J.K Rowling Is Legit Richer Than The Queen

today11 January 2021

Background

What is J.K Rowling’s net worth, you ask? welp, it rhymes with over-a-shmbillion. Let’s face it, not only have the Harry Potter books sold more than 500 million copies, but they’ve also been turned into a massively successful film series, and they’re the inspiration for three whole amusement parks. So yeah, J.K. Rowling is rich.

In fact, she’s richer than the Queen of England. The once-beloved and now controversial writer has made an absolute fortune off The Boy Who Lived; she’s currently one of the wealthiest authors in the world. Which, it should be noted, puts her in an enormous position of influenceβ€”influence she’s currently using to make hateful and dangerous comments against the trans community.

According to Forbes‘ list of 2020’s top earners, Rowling earned $60 million from June 2019 and June 2020β€”from a combination of book sales and Wizarding World sales. Obviously, this is a huge amount of money, though not as much as she earned in 2017 ($95 million).

In other words, she has more money than Gringotts Wizarding Bank would know what to do with. Here’s to hoping she gives most of it away to worthy causes that help marginalized people.
