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.

.@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

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
