It's common knowledge that Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling has a magical way with words, but these internet trolls found out the hard way that her comebacks are just as enchanting.

The British novelist is often vocal about her political views, especially her support for the LGBTQ community and her disdain for Donald Trump. This has attracted some negative attention to her Twitter page, but she instantly summons brutal responses every time. After all, she knows a "load of cobblers" when she sees it.

Check out some of her wittiest take-downs below. You may want to use one the next time a mere muggle has something nasty to say.

It's amazing how easily people forget that she spent many years in poverty with a child.

One thing I love about her retorts is that she knows that in a lot of cases, it's useless to try and actually debate those people. 1. Logic will not likely convince them and 2. chances are, even if they were convinced, they would not admit it publicly. She's got better things to do, and the little time she spends on brilliant comebacks is entertaining and making people's days :D

By labeling him a "Lone Wolf", the media's dismissing the crime as something conceived and cultivated in his mind alone, and is not reflective of a broader culture against Muslims, or influenced in any way by violent and/or hateful ideology. By not calling him a terrorist, they're protecting said broader culture from scrutiny and placing it squarely on the individual. If this were done on behalf of other terrorists of other races, Islamophobia wouldn't grow into the monster that it is. So, yes -- it's fair to call him a terrorist, inasmuch as it's fair to call any person who kills innocent people a terrorist, regardless of their motivation for doing so.
