It's fair to say there's no love lost between Harry Potter author JK Rowling and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Just look at this tweet from 2016...

Or her recent pre-Christmas thread which parodied Corbyn and his supporters and highlighted antisemitism on the left.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter was divided, with some users siding with Rowling...
