Harry Potter Author J.K. Rowling Fires Back At Homophobic Twitter Troll

The richest author in the world just gave a homophobic former ‘fan’ the perfect response on twitter to his angry rant about a gay character.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling responded to Twitter user halfelven55ff who attacked her for making Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore gay.

The disgruntled fan writes:

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

Rowling fired back a short time later by telling her “ex-fan” to start following an anti-gay campaigner in Scotland instead of her:

According to the Independent:

The 49-year old advised her ex-fan to follow Brian Souter instead, the Stagecoach founder who funded a campaign to try and stop the Scottish government from repealing Section 2A of the Local Government Act.

The amendment, repealed in 2000, stated that local authorities “shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality” or “promote the teaching in any maintain school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”.

Souter opposes Rowling on the subject of Scottish independence, with both having donated £1 million to different sides of the debate.

Let’s not forget about the time author Anne Rice gave homophobic Christians the ultimate smack down on her Facebook page, telling her fans, “I will no longer tolerate hate speech in the guise of Christian belief.” Read more here.
