JK Rowling shuts down Donald Trump spokesperson with Harry Potter reference

The author had the best response to Katrina Pierson's comments on Twitter


Twitter can be a cruel place. A place where people can post ignorant comments like this…


For those uninitiated in the world of Potter, the Death Eaters were the army that lined up alongside evil wizard Lord Voldemort. The Dark Lord surrounded himself with pure-bloods – that’s wizards whose mother and father both come from magical families – and persecuted half-bloods (those with just one parent from a wizarding family) and mudbloods (wizards with no magical heritage).

Pierson is yet to respond to Rowling’s Harry Potter burn, so we’re calling it.


Rowling 1 – Pierson 0. Touché.
