When are the Twitturds going to learn not to mess with J.K. Rowling? She may appear to be a dainty English rose, but the author will put down a trolling Twitterer without batting an…actually, she’ll bat one over the head before he knows what hit him. It’s always best if one can shut someone down with a little style and grace, and Rowling has proven she’s mastered the art. Case in point; when someone barged into her Twittversation with Scottish Parliament member, Natalie McGarry (who later deleted her comments, but that’s a whole other politically charged story), Rowling threw out a favorite Chamillionaire lyric and promptly took him down. Apparently author and activist Kevin Williamson is not a Rowling fan, and he popped by to drop his wisdom on McGarry,
to which Rowling amusingly replied:
They see me Rowlin'— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) February 17, 2016
They hatin' https://t.co/dfiqou7vpD
Fans must have carried her response back to the source, because not long after, Chamillionaire high-fived Rowling’s takedown.
@jk_rowling I was gonna remix your tweet to "We see them trollin" but you already took home the Grammy. Touche'— Chamillionaire (@chamillionaire) February 17, 2016
Moving Ridin’ right along, in other Twitterventures with Authors, Rowling lamented a work slowdown due to her persnickety pooch.
I'd have finished this book months ago if my dog could only make up her mind which side of the door she'd like to be on. #STAY— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) February 16, 2016
Stephen King dropped by to commiserate.
Better down a well than a storm drain, amirite?
