Kellie-Jay Keen Minshull, who also goes by the name Posie Parker, was in Australia as part of her "Let Women Speak" tour when a protester threw tomato juice at her.

Parker, 48, was then rushed by security forces to a waiting police car and fled the scene.

The “Harry Potter” author condemned the attacks as “repellent” in a series of tweets.

“There are multiple videos of Kellie-Jay being assaulted. Women have become used to lies, threats of violence and outright denial of reality, but if you imagine anyone feels ‘defeated’, think again, tweeted the author. “Your men’s rights activists showed the world exactly who they are.”

Parker later tweeted that she was sorry for not being able to speak.

“The bravery of the New Zealand women and men who came to speak the truth shall not be forgotten,” tweeted Parker. “I was honored to be amongst you. I’m so sorry.”

Rowling, 57, later retweeted a picture from the London-based group “The Lesbian Project” that pro-trans activists were “chanting” and “shouting” because “lesbians are meeting without men present.”

“After the repellent scenes from New Zealand, in which a mob assaulted women speaking up for their rights, #TheLesbiansProject is being intimidated and threatened in the UK, right now,” the author. 

Parker responded to the protest in a video that was posted on Youtube after she was spirited away from the commotion.

“I thought they were going to crush us to death,” said the controversial figure in the video.  “I genuinely have never felt so unsafe in my life.”

Parker’s stop in Wellington was canceled aftrer Parker’s organization Speak Up For Women cited “credible threats to life” as the reason.
