J.K. Rowling Defends Serena Williams on Twitter

The Harry Potter author won't hesitate to call you an idiot if you mess with her fave tennis player.

  • There are some famous people who make the Twitter experience worth all the other nonsense, and one of those people is JK Rowling. Not only was the Harry Potter author completely geeking out over Serena Williams during Wimbledon over the weekend, she swatted down a troll over a comment about Serena's muscular physique.

    It's so endearing when celebrities fangirl over objectively awesome people.

  • Of course, some people couldn't resist trying to ruin things by implying that Serena is secretly a man or whatever, but Rowling was having none of that. I wonder what it's like to be known as The Guy JK Rowling Owned That One Time.

  • Rowling's rebuke was particularly welcome, with crude comments about Serena Williams' appearance all over the internet. Conservative pundit David Frum earned his own backlash by more or less accusing Williams of taking steroids in a series of ill-advised tweets.

  • Seriously, let's drop the dumb comments and get back to the adorable fangirling.
