JK Rowling yet again proves she is the Queen of Twitter

Harry Potter author JK Rowling has revealed she is the Queen of Twitter after taking a pop at Vice President Mike Pence.
Responding to an old tweet Mr Pence put out during the election campaign, where he called a ban on Muslims “offensive and unconstitutional”, she quoted a verse from the Bible.Screen-Shot-2017-02-02-at-11.49.30

“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Matthew 16:26,” she said on the social media site.

It wasn’t long, however, before the trolls were out in force to attack the celebrated author.

Though never one to miss a beat, JK was quick to take a few of them down.

First, she reminded them that anyone is free to talk about politics.Screen-Shot-2017-02-02-at-11.49.57

Then she tackled some of the abuse – such as being called “Mrs Shitty Writer”.IMG_20170205_043341_6207

And gently educated a few of them on how economics work.Screen-Shot-2017-02-02-at-11.50.28

And, of course, let’s not forget that time she schooled the Daily Mail on its criticism of a gay judge.Screen-Shot-2017-02-02-at-11.54.00

    What I love about this woman’s responses to trolls is they’re razor sharp while still staying classy. I think of her as the film character who’d slice the villain’s throat while still sipping tea.
