Rowling lets rip with a four-letter Twitter tirade against Piers Morgan
PIERS Morgan and JK Rowling became involved in a bitter Twitter spat last night after the Good Morning Britain presenter was told to ‘f*** off’ on live television.
The Edinburgh-based Harry Potter author expressed her glee at the broadcaster being sworn at by Australian comedian Jim Jefferies.
Discussing President Trump’s bid to stop people from seven mostly Muslim countries entering the US, Morgan – in America on a chat show – said it was not a Muslim ban. Jefferies said: ‘Oh, f*** off. It’s a f ****** Muslim ban.’
Miss Rowling tweeted: ‘Yes, watching Piers Morgan being told to f*** off on live TV is exactly as satisfying as I’d always imagined.’
Morgan replied: ‘This is why I’ve never read a word of Harry Potter.’
Miss Rowling then said: ‘Because you had a premonition that the author would roar with laughter at seeing you called out for your bull **** ?’
Morgan wrote: ‘The superior, dismissive arrogance of rabid Remain/Clinton supporters like @jk_rowling is, of course, precisely why both campaigns lost.’
Miss Rowling concluded: ‘The factfree, amoral, bigotry-apologism of celebrity toady Piers Morgan is, of course, why it’s so delicious to see him told to f*** off.’
