Trolls beware: J.K. Rowling is not playing around.
As she's shown many times, Rowling is not afraid to respond to her critics on Twitter. And she doesn't just respond.
She claps back.
After a Twitter bully posted a disparaging tweet about Rowling, she sent out this epic reply:
(Warning: Strong language)
Twitter applauded Rowling's response:
Gawd I love ya girl, you are so rich with texture and profundity! Thank you for giving me the best laugh of the day!! ❤️😂😂😂❤️— Ariaa Jaeger (@AriaaJaeger) May 30, 2017
Rowling clearly knows her way around a tweet:
For some, her tweets have nearly become life-threatening:
I need to stop reading your tweets over breakfast. I just laughed so hard at number 3, I almost choked.— Kate ☠ (@katmac95) May 30, 2017
Even some of Rowling's critics sympathized with her:
I don't know who wrote that tweet but it is offensive. So sorry. I don't agree with everything you say but you don't deserve to be abused.— Ann Weatherly-Barton (@xpressanny) May 30, 2017
To many, Rowling is a Twitter hero:
Growing up as a Muslim-Albanian family with very patriarchal ideas on the way a family is supposed to operate, my idea of what a father should be was a very "man's man" one.
He brings home the bacon, laughs maybe five times a year, and was really into Clint Eastwood and Martin Scorcese movies. Oh, and a Marlboro Red had to be perpetually hanging out the side of his mouth.
Fast forward years later and here I am, dadding it up, and I'm not that, like, at all. The manliest thing I probably do is hit the gym, bro, and not shave my chest hair. Other than that though, I'm nothing like the former generation of "guy's guys" that raised me. Which I'm totally cool with, because I'm already learning special hair braids to try out on my daughter once she gets older. Because her old man might be a North Jersey meathead, but he's going to be a meathead who doesn't mind having tea parties and getting his nails painted with his little girl.
