J.K. Rowling Rips Into the ‘Fact-Free, Amoral, Bigotry-Apologism of Celebrity Toady’ Piers Morgan

jk rowlingedited

A day after British journalist Piers Morgan’s crazy appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher ended with him being told to “f*ck off” by a middle-finger-waving Jim Jefferies, the former CNN host found himself engaged in a Twitter feud with one of the most famous authors in the world.

Earlier today, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling tweeted out a video of Jefferies cussing out Morgan, saying it was “as satisfying as I’d always imagined.”

Morgan was quick to respond to the slam, claiming that this is why he’s never read any of Rowling’s Harry Potter books.

Rowling shot back, wondering if he knew years ago that she would laugh at him and this is why he stayed away from reading her stuff.

Piers didn’t answer that question, but instead pivoted to what he said during his appearance on Real Time.

Only to be ridiculed by Rowling yet again.

This led Morgan to label the author as arrogant and point to this arrogance as the reason Hillary Clinton and Remain in Britain lost.

Well, Rowling replied to Morgan with this:

Morgan also sent out (and deleted) a tweet that read, “Would you like me to explain why all your political views keep being defeated at the ballot box,” which Rowling responded to with the following tweet:

Afterwards, Rowling retweeted someone who pointed out that despite Morgan claiming he never read a word of Harry Potter, he devoted an article to comparing Lance Armstrong to Voldemort, the villain of the series.

She then ended her battle with Piers with some shade-throwing.
