Rowl­ing lets rip with a four-let­ter Twit­ter tirade against Piers Mor­gan

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News - By Paul Drury

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.’

MOR­GAN: Says he has ‘never read a word of Harry Pot­ter’

AT­TACK: JK Rowl­ing called Piers Mor­gan a ‘celebrity toady’
