Schooled! J.K. Rowling just shut down a hater on Twitter by wittily quoting none other than rapper Chamillionaire. The Harry Potter author was responding to a writer named Kevin Williamson, who inserted himself in her feud with Glasgow East Parliament member Natalie McGarry.

In case you missed it, McGarry previously accused Rowling, 50, of “defending misogynists” on Twitter. While attempting to prove her argument, McGarry shared a screenshot of a conversation between Rowling and a Twitter user, but she apparently misunderstood it. Instead of Rowling supporting a misogynist, the world-famous author was thanking a man for supporting her charity, Lumos.

“The particular screen grab from JK Rowling didn't give the correct context to her relationship with a tweeter, so for that, I apologise,” McGarry tweeted on Wednesday, February 17.

“@NatalieMcGarry why apologise to her. She uses her obscene wealth & lawyer droids to threaten & bully. Tell the radge to bolt,” a user by the name of Kevin Williamson tweeted.

“They see me Rowlin' They hatin’” the author perfectly replied to Williamson, quoting the rapper’s 2005 hit “Ridin’.”
