Main image to the post Waterstones Faces Backlash for Sacking Bookseller Over Gender-Critical Views

Waterstones is in hot water after terminating the employment of Tilly Fitzgerald, a bookseller and book influencer known for her TikTok page, Tilly Loves Books. The controversy began when Fitzgerald made a public statement indicating that she would discard an author's books due to their gender-critical views, which led to her dismissal for violating Waterstones' social media policy.

Fitzgerald clarified that her statement was not about removing the author's books from the store's shelves but simply reflected her personal decision not to support the author individually. The situation has sparked a heated discussion on social media, with many questioning Waterstones' handling of the issue and arguing that Fitzgerald's comments were within her rights of free speech.

Supporters of Fitzgerald and the LGBTQ+ community have rallied behind her, urging Waterstones to reconsider its decision and reinstate her. Some individuals have criticized the bookstore for what they perceive as unfair treatment and have called for a boycott of the author's books in solidarity with Fitzgerald. Additionally, questions have been raised about Waterstones' internal consistency regarding employees' social media activities.
