She’s got his back! Stephen King let his Twitter followers know that President Donald Trump blocked him on the social media site, and fellow author J.K. Rowling stepped in with a hilarious response.
Since Trump, 70, won the presidential election in November, King, 69, has frequently spoken out against the ex-Celebrity Apprentice host and his administration.
Most recently, King tweeted the following message about the president’s daughter on Monday, June 12: “If Ivanka Trump had grown up in farm country, like some of us, she’d know her father is reaping exactly what he sowed.”
His post upset a number of Trump supporters. In response, the writer revealed that the 45th POTUS has blocked him on Twitter, and joked, “I may have to kill myself.”
I still have access. I'll DM them to you. https://t.co/MhibEYDBTg— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) June 13, 2017
Rowling, 51, another Trump adversary, replied to King, letting him know that she is still able to see the business mogul’s Twitter account — and is willing to share any of his tweets. “I still have access,” she wrote. “I’ll DM them to you.”
Back in February, Rowling clapped back at a Twitter troll who burned the author’s Harry Potter books for her anti-Trump stance.
“@jk_rowling just burned all my Harry Potter books after being a fan for 17 years. I’m upset it has to be that way.. You embarrassed me, disgusted me, and I will never read your work again #ThankyouFor17Years,” the Twitter user wrote.
“Guess it’s true what they say: you can lead a girl to books about the rise and fall of an autocrat,” Rowling quipped, “but you still can’t make her think.”
