Twitter queen J.K. Rowling helps out pal Stephen King after he’s blocked by Trump
And whenever Donald Trump makes a mistake, you can expect, like clockwork, a fire tweet from the Harry Potter author, post-haste. The president’s latest mistake was apparently blocking author Stephen King on Twitter, for which Rowling had the perfect solution.
King first tweeted this wonderfully constructed statement announcing his Trump Twitter fate:
Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. I may have to kill myself.

Rowling, making sure everyone has equal access to Trump’s very active account, helped her pal out in the only way a Twitter queen like her can.
Just two beloved authors helping each other out with some supreme trolling. Isn’t that what literary fame is all about?
People on Twitter loved this kind of petty tag-team collaboration between the two superstars, and believe their interaction is what Twitter was made for.
this is some dumbledores army level pettiness i love it

This interaction between two author giants might be my favorite bright point in the dumpster fire that is our current Administration

I’ll be damned if this isn’t the coolest tweet of the day. Stephen King blocked by Trump, JK Rowling doing end run-around to DM him. Sweet.

Honestly, we’re kind of surprised Rowling hasn’t been blocked already, but we’re definitely not complaining. If she was, who’d be the hero to Trump-blocked best-selling genre-changing authors everywhere?
Even more, will this act of Twitter friendship blossom into an amazing collaborative project between the two? One can (definitely, fingers totally crossed) dream.
