JK Rowling Shuts Down Trolls With Inspiring Words After Donald Trump Victory

'We don't let hate speech become normalised.'

JK Rowling has hit back trolls on Twitter who demanded she “shut up” following the shock election of Donald Trump.

The Harry Potter author responded to criticism, invariably from unidentified “egg” or “frog” accounts.

In a powerful riposte to her critics, Rowling wrote: “We stand together. We stick up for the vulnerable. We challenge bigots. We don’t let hate speech become normalised. We hold the line.”

And responding to those asking her to stop publicising Trump and his supporters, Rowling added: “Ignoring spite, and hate, and bullying doesn’t work.”
