J.K. Rowling has always been an avid voice of feminism and equality — which made some Harry Potter fans that more upset over the casting of Johnny Depp in her upcoming prequel series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The beloved film franchise faced criticism for casting the Hollywood star after he faced serious domestic abuse allegations during his divorce battle with Amber Heard earlier this year.

But at the Fantastic Beasts New York premiere on Thursday night, Rowling defended Depp's involvement, saying she was "delighted" to have him join her Wizarding World!

Donald Trump swindled his way into the White House by exploiting the most racist citizens in the country, leaving the rest of us to fear being led by a conniving man-child for the next four years.

Since few have more knowledge about unfit rulers and a looming apocalypse than George R.R. Martin, the Game Of Thrones author made a dire prediction on what's to come for America — specifically, winter.

Teen Mom 2 Star Kailyn Lowry Recalls Her Horrific Rape In New Book

What a disturbing and upsetting story.

In Kailyn Lowry's new book Hustle and Heart, she opened up about being raped as a young teenager by an admirer named Caleb.

According to Kail, Caleb had doggedly pursued her despite her continually rejecting his advances. The reality star strictly viewed the teen as a friend rather than a romantic interest.

Unfortunately for the mom of two, Caleb showed up at her apartment unexpectedly one night and went ballistic. Apparently the perp fought with Lowry and eventually overpowered her with physical violence so he could rape her.

Recalling the horrific moment, the Delaware resident revealed:

"I bled. I screamed. And when he left me, my body torn and my sheets stained with blood, I felt like I was dead."

Wow… there really are no words.

Following the sexual assault, Kailyn went to the hospital to receive painful stitches for her injuries. Despite the obvious trauma to her body, the Teen Mom 2 star refused a rape kit because she was afraid of the "consequences".

Lowry explained:

"I was shaken and afraid and overwhelmed by chaotic ideas of what would happen if I accused Caleb of rape. I couldn't stand to think about the consequences."

Now that time has passed, the 24-year-old has been able to reflect on the incident:

"If only I had stood up for myself, raised my voice and backed up my beliefs. If only I'd been living proof of the fact that no victim should live in shame…I could be looking back now and feeling proud of myself."

Well, at least Kail is coming forward now. It's totally understandable and okay that she didn't feel comfortable with speaking out back then — sexual assault awareness is still something our country struggles with today.

So, what do YOU think of Kailyn's account?
