JK Rowling Totally Shuts Down Piers Morgan After He Bashes ‘Harry Potter' Books

JK Rowling is at it again with the expert Twitter trolling. And this time, she's taking down British journalist and TV personality, Piers Morgan.

It all started with a tweet.

Early Saturday morning, Rowling tweeted in reaction to Morgan's appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Comedian Jim Jefferies told Morgan to “fuck off” after he said “there is no Muslim ban.” (There is.)

Poor, little Piersy didn't like that, so he responded to Rowling's trollings (petition to change her official Twitter name to “JK Trowling”… I'm sorry) by saying her tweet is the exact reason he's never read any of the “Harry Potter” books.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call a “stretch.”

Piers Morgan tweet that reads "This is why I've never read a single word of Harry Potter."

Twitter

Let me break it down for you, Piers, because I think you're confused: You can't credit a tweet from 2017 as the sole motivation behind why you never read a book series that came out in the '90s.

You're just pissed off that a woman who is lightyears more intelligent and successful than you is calling you out on your bullshit.

Poor guy. So fragile.

Rowling, never one to let idiots get away with being idiots, clapped back and was like, “You are stupid, your logic is flawed and I am laughing at you. Here are X reasons why.”

JK Rowling tweet that reads "Because you had a premonition that one day the author would roar with laughter at seeing you called out for your bullshit on live TV?"

Twitter

God, I love this woman.

Rowling and Morgan then went into a Twitter duel, just like the one in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” where Draco is like, “Scared, Potter?” and Harry's like, “You. Wish.”

TAKE HIM DOWN, JO. YOU ARE HARRY. HE IS DRACO. EXCEPT PIERS MORGAN HAS NO REDEEMING QUALITIES LIKE DRACO KINDA DOES.

Draco is an OK guy, OK? Like, he's fine. By the end of the books he's, like, cool. Did some bad shit, but we cool now.

PIERS MORGAN IS NOT COOL LIKE DRACO NOW.

But for the sake of this article, JK Rowling is Harry, Piers Morgan is Draco. Got it? Great. Glad we got that settled. Moving on.

Here's how the duel played out:

WANDS AT THE READY.

Piers Morgan tweet to JK Rowling that reads "If you think screaming 'FUCK OFF!!!' at me changes that, then you're mistaken."

Twitter

Piers Morgan: “Everything I said was factual.”

Narrator: “Everything he said was NOT factual.”


TELL HIM, HARRY. Uh, JK. I mean JK.

JK Rowling tweet to Piers Morgan that reads ".@piersmorgan Would you like a couple of hours to mock up some pictures of refugees carrying explosives to substantiate your position?"

Twitter


LMAO, he's literally trying to mansplain JK Rowling.

Piers Morgan tweet to JK Rowling that reads "Would you like me to explain why all your political views keep being defeated at the ballot box?"

Twitter


Do you really want to talk about superiority complexes and arrogance? Piers, do you know who you are?

Piers Morgan tweet that reads "The superior, dismissive arrogance of rabid Remain/Clinton supporters like @jk_rowling is, of course, precisely why both campaigns lost."

Twitter


YA, JO. HIT HIM WITH THAT STUPEFY.

JK Rowling tweet that reads "The fact-free, amoral, bigotry-apologism of celebrity toady Piers Morgan is, of course, why it's so delicious to see him told to fuck off."

Twitter


JK Rowling literally has more money than the queen of England and created the most popular book/movie franchise in history, but sure, she's a “minor celebrity.”

Piers Morgan tweet to JK Rowling that reads "Peak foul-mouthed, minor celebrity anti-Trump hysteria at its most deliciously supercilious:"

Twitter


Hmmm, sounds familiar.

JK Rowling tweet to Piers Morgan that reads "I see: if you win, you're right? I seem to have read something rather like that before... hmm... pretty sure it was in German... "

Twitter

Morgan — who is an avid Trump supporter, in case you couldn't tell already — deleted the tweet she originally quoted here, but it was most likely the tweet he wrote saying, “Would you like me to explain why all your political views keep being defeated at the ballot box?”


BURNNNNN. (Get it?)

JK Rowling tweet to Piers Morgan that reads ".@piersmorgan If only you'd read Harry Potter, you'd know the downside of sucking up to the biggest bully in school is getting burned alive."

Twitter


I thought you didn't read “Harry Potter,” Piersy? What's with the Dolores Umbridge reference, huh?

Piers Morgan tweet that reads "No bigger bullies right now than the shrieking, hysterical anti-Trump celebrity brigade. You lost, so suck it up Dolores."

Twitter


Rowling had quite enough after that, so instead of responding to his tweets, she just started trolling him outside of his mentions.

First, she retweeted this article a fan posted that was literally written by Morgan and makes a shit ton of “Harry Potter” references. So, like, he definitely has at least watched the movies.

Then she tweeted a screenshot from an article reporting “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” had won Book Of The Year, beating out Morgan's autobiography. Sad!


Rowling fans tweeted in support of the author.

Josh Gad tweet to JK Rowling that reads "God, you are a treasure"

Twitter

Jonathan Chait tweet to Piers Morgan that reads "The most devastating rebuke an author could have would be to learn Piers Morgan had read, understood and enjoyed her book."

Twitter

Ted Geoghegan tweet to JK Rowling that reads "@jk_rowling Thank you for being amazing, using your voice to help enact positive change in the world, and driving @piersmorgan insane. xo"

Twitter


Wow, Piers. You're such a martyr.

Piers Morgan tweet that reads "If it falls to me to stand up for the global basket of deplorables, then so be it."

Twitter

Morgan tried to act like he wasn't completely dragged through the mud by Rowling by tweeting a picture of him and Trump together.

Cause THAT'S impressive.

Sorry, Draco. Nobody cares that you're buddies with Lord Voldemort.

Looks like Morgan needs a nice, long trip to the hospital wing so Madam Pomfrey can apply ice to his burned areas.
