J.K. Rowling Had The Perfect Response To A Homophobic Troll On Twitter

She doesn’t tweet a lot, but she sure knows how to throw some shade. BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘posted_date’, 1410037477); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { document.getElementById(“update_posted_time_3439052”).innerHTML = “posted on ” + UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(1410037477); });

1. This morning someone tweeted a homophobic comment at J.K. Rowling:

Frank Fraticelli @halfelven55ff

@jk_rowling once u revealed Dumbledore was homosexual I stopped being a fan. Nice how u blindsided us with that one. Enjoy your billion $.

BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘tweet_posted_date’, ‘Sat Sep 06 13:14:50 UTC+0000 2014’); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘utc_posted_date’, ‘Sat Sep 06 13:14:50 UTC+0000 2014’); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (bfjs.isMobile() || !isIE8()) document.getElementById(“update_tweet_posted_time_3754716”).setAttribute(‘title’, ‘Time posted: ‘ + UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(‘Sat Sep 06 13:14:50 UTC+0000 2014’, ‘UTC’) ); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { document.getElementById(“update_tweet_posted_time_3754716”).innerHTML = UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(‘Sat Sep 06 13:14:50 UTC+0000 2014’, ‘tweet’); });

2. Though she doesn’t tweet often, Rowling responded to this troll with just the right amount of snark…

J.K. Rowling @jk_rowling

@halfelven55ff I advise you to start following Brian Souter at once. He's much more your kind of person.

BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘tweet_posted_date’, ‘Sat Sep 06 13:18:55 UTC+0000 2014’); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘utc_posted_date’, ‘Sat Sep 06 13:18:55 UTC+0000 2014’); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (bfjs.isMobile() || !isIE8()) document.getElementById(“update_tweet_posted_time_3754720”).setAttribute(‘title’, ‘Time posted: ‘ + UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(‘Sat Sep 06 13:18:55 UTC+0000 2014’, ‘UTC’) ); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { document.getElementById(“update_tweet_posted_time_3754720”).innerHTML = UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(‘Sat Sep 06 13:18:55 UTC+0000 2014’, ‘tweet’); });

3. Brian Souter, Scotland’s richest businessman, is known for funding and supporting anti-gay legislation.

4. After doling out that not-so-subtle suggestion, Rowling got lots of positive support from fans.

J.K. Rowling @jk_rowling

I want to thank all the people tweeting me lovely messages. Don't worry about me – to paraphrase Albus Dumbledore…

BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘tweet_posted_date’, ‘Sat Sep 06 13:27:28 +0000 2014’); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘utc_posted_date’, ‘Sat Sep 06 13:27:28 +0000 2014’); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (bfjs.isMobile() || !isIE8()) document.getElementById(“update_tweet_posted_time_3754765”).setAttribute(‘title’, ‘Time posted: ‘ + UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(‘Sat Sep 06 13:27:28 +0000 2014’, ‘UTC’) ); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { document.getElementById(“update_tweet_posted_time_3754765”).innerHTML = UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(‘Sat Sep 06 13:27:28 +0000 2014’, ‘tweet’); });

5. And she left us with one more piece of advice…

J.K. Rowling @jk_rowling

If you're waiting for universal popularity, you'll be on Twitter a VERY long time. xxxx

BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘tweet_posted_date’, ‘Sat Sep 06 13:28:25 UTC+0000 2014’); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘utc_posted_date’, ‘Sat Sep 06 13:28:25 UTC+0000 2014’); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (bfjs.isMobile() || !isIE8()) document.getElementById(“update_tweet_posted_time_3754729”).setAttribute(‘title’, ‘Time posted: ‘ + UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(‘Sat Sep 06 13:28:25 UTC+0000 2014’, ‘UTC’) ); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { document.getElementById(“update_tweet_posted_time_3754729”).innerHTML = UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(‘Sat Sep 06 13:28:25 UTC+0000 2014’, ‘tweet’); });
