It should be common sense to not pick a fight of words with an author, right? They practice with those weapons for a living. An anonymous troll learned the hard way not to try and spew hate at J.K. Rowling.


Earlier this week, Rowling posted a tweet about writing advice. Like many famous authors, Rowling is often asked about how to write and what rules she uses.

While she's not a big fan of rules, she does have some advice.



The response was very appreciated among her fans.






Rowling even took some time out to respond to tweets directly.




However, here's where things take a turn. A Twitter user thought he could get away with questioning her writing and political views in a very rude way.

Spoiler Alert: He couldn't.


The troll tries accusing Rowling's writing of being "shit" and the writer herself of being "politically delusional". Rowling is not having any of it.

Despite the questions being very uncivil, Rowling responded very politely, taking each question at its word. That is until you get to the "implied" third question where she calls out the troll for what he is.

You don't get to be the queen of writing for nothing.






The author of the Harry Potter series, Rowling is known for her sly wit when responding to trolls. She had an extended feud with Piers Morgan where she got him to unknowingly insult his own former glowing review of her success. And she's taken particular aim at President Donald Trump when he goes on his twitter rampages.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"

Why are people so dumb? Ok, maybe that's harsh. Maybe some of us just speak dumb.

I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt when in conversation, but I'm consistently disappointed.

So I've come to three conclusions... people really don't think before they speak, brain farts are more frequent then we'd like to believe or... people are dumb. And maybe hearing isn't a gift, but a curse.

Thoughts?

Films are a great art form because they rely entirely upon interpretation, but the director can really control the outcome. They are an extremely visual medium in addition to being a storytelling one: so the way a director deals with their movie can really change the tone.

I love characters I love to hate.

Even when I hate them I can always find the reason they're involved in the story, so I find it difficult to want them to be erased.

Certain characters flaws and the most heinous decisions are written to further story and bolster the audience's love for the heroes.

So as much as we loathe them, we need them; much like our enemies in real life. That is what makes compelling drama.

Redditor u/nekoandCJ wanted to spill the tea on the characters we could do without in our favorite stories by asking:

People of reddit, what fictional character do you hate with a passion?
