The development and the release of Hogwarts Legacy have been a source of controversy. Harry Potter's creator J.K. Rowling has shown it in numerous ways on social media. The series' antisemitic imagery includes the goblins, creatures with hooked noses who handle the world's banks.
JK Rowling's transphobic views and her influence on the Hogwarts Legacy - controversy
The discovery is currently making headlines on social media, with many individuals claiming that this instrument used to be a musical instrument. The only difference between the fictional item and the real-world item is that the fictional one is colored. In the real world, the shofar is a ram's horn that the Jewish people have used throughout history and still use during Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year.
Hogwarts Legacy briefly discusses another goblin rebellion that took place in 1612. In the real world, there was a similar event known as a pogrom, a violent riot to expel or murder the Jewish population. It's a shocking connection that many players have discovered and are eager to share as the game begins its development today.
Rowling's social media pages have and continue to be transphobic, particularly in recent years. Despite many fans boycotting the game, Hogwarts Legacy continues to set new records, reaching over half a million concurrent players on Steam.
