Piers Morgan and J K Rowling massively fell out and the internet reacted brilliantly

Posted by in offbeat

On Friday, Piers Morgan appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher, alongside a panel which included the potty-mouthed Australian comedian Jim Jefferies, where the duo exchanged heated words.

The argument came to a head when Jefferies told Morgan to ‘F--k off’ after Piers defended Donald Trump’s attempt to ban people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

J K Rowling, along with the rest of the world, beamed at the exchange.


Morgan, never one to back down from a Twitter fight, quickly responded to the author:



People on the internet delivered burn...


After burn...


After beautiful burn...


What do Americans call it - a home run?


Morgan claimed he never any Harry Potter books. 


Except Twitter users were quick to point out an article he penned in 2015, where he references Harry Potter. A lot. 




He defended his article by saying that his eldest son is, much to his chagrin, a Harry Potter fan which is why he knows about the books.


It was the argument of the year (and it's only February!)
