Labour supporting JK Rowling has been on the receiving end of horrific online abuse after a the Tories' nationawide majority and the SNP's landslide victory in Scotland.
Instead of taking the chance to be happy and celebrate, a few people appear to have taken great relish in hurling gloating obscenities at the Harry Potter author.

And this was just a bit odd.
Everything still OK in this nation with 95% SNP MPs?

.@sjosiah0 The Internet doesn’t just offer opportunities for misogynistic abuse, you know. Penis enlargers can also be bought discreetly.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) May 8, 2015
Holy shit. @jk_rowling's hilarious tweet left us all speechless. That. Was. Brilliant.— Ardit Haliti (@ardit_haliti) May 8, 2015

@HuffPostUK Well she needs to stop putting her point across when she doesn't have a clue how much upset she causes— elaine (@ElaineOordugkim) May 8, 2015
The haters were far outnumbered buy supporters...
If you could all see the amount of love and support flooding my timeline right now, you would be - as I am - overwhelmed. #FaithRestored— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) May 8, 2015

No one deserves the vitriol being slung at @jk_rowling. Being a woman (famous or not) with an opinion doesn't make it open season.— Aimée Carter (@aimee_carter) May 8, 2015
