JK Rowling Battles Twitter Bullies

JK Rowling Harry Potter author JK Rowling has revealed a torrent of Twitter abuse aimed at her after results of the general election saw the Scottish National Party sweep to a landslide victory in Scotland. She wrote: “It isn’t always fun being a famous woman on Twitter and I believe in standing up to bullies.”

The millionairess was born in London and has a £4.5m Georgian home in Kensington but has attracted a lot of vitriol since she donated £1m to the ‘No’ campaign during the Scottish independence referendum. Reacting to the abuse the author said her “personal line had been crossed”.

She had also donated £1m to the Labour Party who suffered a wipe-out in Scotland as the SNP won 56 out of 59 seats under the leadership of Nicola Sturgeon. She revealed she had been called a ‘traitor’ for her political views and had been forced to block some of her tormentors who she believed were SNP supporters.
