J.K. Rowling Had The Perfect Response To A Homophobic Troll On Twitter

She doesn't tweet a lot, but she sure knows how to throw some shade.

This morning someone tweeted a homophobic comment at J.K. Rowling:

Though she doesn't tweet often, Rowling responded to this troll with just the right amount of snark...

@halfelven55ff I advise you to start following Brian Souter at once. He's much more your kind of person.

After doling out that not-so-subtle suggestion, Rowling got lots of positive support from fans.

I want to thank all the people tweeting me lovely messages. Don't worry about me - to paraphrase Albus Dumbledore...

And she left us with one more piece of advice...

If you're waiting for universal popularity, you'll be on Twitter a VERY long time. xxxx
