J.K. Rowling takes on homophobic Westboro Baptist Church on Twitter

Screenshot 2015-06-10 at 09.33.30 AMIn today’s edition of “Who’s J.K. Rowling Fighting With (and Winning) on Twitter?”, J.K. Rowling takes on the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, the homophobic, racist and misogynist organization based in the U.S.

The interaction started when J.K. Rowling tweeted in praise of Ireland’s landmark event of legalizing same-sex marriage in a popular vote. She tweeted to fellow author and friend Val McDermid, “May the next generation never go through what some of my friends went through. A victory for love and human rights!”

Hilariously, Jo tweeted this picture as well, which thus caught the attention of the Westboro Baptist Church.

The Westboro Baptist Church’s tweet and Jo’s epic response:

And finally, J.K. Rowling’s kind defense of gay (LGBTQ+) youth…

All hail to Queen Rowling, the true gay icon!
