Twitter can be a cruel place. A place where people can post ignorant comments like this…
Perfect Obama's dad born in Africa, Mitt Romney's dad born in Mexico. Any pure breeds left? #CNNDebate

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.
