Fiery Twitter War Breaks Out Between JK Rowling, George Takei And Piers Morgan

JK Rowling, George Takei and Piers Morgan engage in a fiery war of words on Twitter.

Famed “Harry Potter” author JK Rowling took to her Twitter page to mock controversial British journalist Piers Morgan after he was told to “f***-off” during a Friday appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”



The panel was discussing Trump’s effort to ban immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. Morgan claimed Trump’s efforts were not a Muslim ban, at which point Australian comedian Jim Jefferies told him to “f***-off.”

Rowling took to her Twitter a few minutes later, writing: “Yes, watching Piers Morgan being told to f***-off on live TV is *exactly* as satisfying as I’d always imagined.”

Morgan initially tweeted back: “This is why I’ve never read a single word of Harry Potter.”

Rowling hit back, responding:

Morgan responded:

The spat went on for hours and it is difficult to tell at this point if it has ended or not.
