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.

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.

Voldemort as least was intelligent, an had dignity and a chilling kind of style. But I'm not sure if I'd rather have him as a president - probably not; he would do things too systematically. True evil.

I think when it comes to movies, because they try to be more "realistic", they have this sort of "unwritten rule" of staying closer to the character descriptions, where in stage performances, appearance-related differences are generally not important, unless specific to the social situations around the character (i.e. If the play / musical concerns race relations, you don't want, say, the persecuted black American character played by a Chinese guy or something, lest the audience get very confused.)

That's an important thing: when you publicly stand up against something - ad the internet counts as publicly - it's not just the people you're responding to you can have an effect on. It's everyone else witnessing the debate. People look to people with a platform to shape their opinions - politicians, journalists, and any person famous enough to have public weight. Rowling standing against bigots is like Harry standing against Umbridge: it makes other people brave, too.

I'm kind of confused by the relevance of this quote. I would've quoted the U.S. Constitution, since it was rather explicitly written by guys who mostly didn't care much for the Bible. Amendment 1 of the Constitution says this: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" which seems decidedly more on-point.

If it's 'just words', let's see Trump's reaction if someone came up to his wife and said (using just words) "Melania, I would love to grab your p...y". No, it's not 'just' words.
