J.K. Rowling, the writer of the popular “Harry Potter” series, faced criticism in June 2020 for her controversial statements regarding the transgender community on social media.

Well, Deluxe Edition Hogwarts Legacy players already have the game, which includes most of the major streamers and content creators. It’s no secret that there is massive hype for this game, and with that a lot of streamers have been averaging much higher viewer counts than normal.
With that said, one activist (Twitter: @iamsamgibbs) has created a website called “have they streamed THAT wizard game?” (https://havetheystreamedthatwizardgame.com/). The site main functionality is to find out just that; whether a streamer has played Hogwarts Legacy or not.

The Game That Shall Not Be Named? Why are they so afraid of mentioning the game?”.
For those that want to have a quick laugh reading responses to this, I urge you to look at a post in /r/Asmongold!
