This is why JK Rowling kicks Piers Morgan

PIERS Morgan and J.K. Rowling have been bickering back-and-forth on Twitter for quite some time now, but the Harry Potter author just delivered a near-fatal blow to her online rival.
Rowling tweeted out some kind words that were previously written about her in the press.
The snippet contained the lines including, “Ms Rowling definitely matters” and “by encouraging children to read, feel inspired and be creative, she has had a greater impact on the world than most of the other names on it.”
In the tweet, which she posted on Valentine’s Day, Rowling wrote: “Just been sent this! Could the writer let me know who he is? I’d love to thank him!”

The trap had been set.
Piers Morgan saw the tweet and chastised the author almost immediately.
“Priceless #humblebrag BS,” Morgan tweeted, “Nobody plays the celebrity game more abusively or ruthlessly than you, Ms ‘Intensely Private Billionaire’.”
But here’s the thing ... THE KIND WORDS WERE WRITTEN BY PIERS MORGAN HIMSELF IN A 2010 ARTICLE FOR THE DAILY MAIL.
And the internet lit up with delight:

Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. He doesn't realise. This is the best day of my life. pic.twitter.com/fl0lFPHXf5

“Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. He doesn’t realise. This is the best day of my life,” wrote one Twitter user.
“My favourite thing on twitter at the moment is piers Morgan getting the absolute sh*t ripped out of him by jk Rowling.”
“You’ll find she’s just run him over, had him stuffed; he’s now above her mantle #killerblow.”
In response to the online mockery, Morgan claimed that he wasn’t fooled for one second: “Relax, quarter-wit, I knew what it was. Just surprised I put her as high as 97th,” he tweeted.
Sorry Piers, but you got owned.

Rowling needs to have a Twitter war with the Donald.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

You hate her that much? I'm pretty sure pervy donnie isn't someone anyone wants to willingly deal with.

Fair point. :D

Though Rowling has used Twitter to criticize Trumpolini in the past, I believe.

Actually, she already kind of is in said "war"...

A minute's thought suggests that the very idea of this is stupid. A more detailed examination raises the possibility that it might be an answer to the question "how could the Germans win the war after the US gets involved?" - Captain Seafort, in a thread proposing a 1942 'D-Day' in Quiberon Bay

Yeah, that was a sick burn. Props to J.K.

I started reading Potter for a girl, because hi have you met me, and at first I thought it was a bit immature, and then I thought it was angsty like a 13-year-old and began to get the concept, and then I was really enjoying #6, and then #7... just shit the bed. I've ranted about this enough times here that everybody who cares probably knows my specific gripes, so I will now finish the threadjack.
