J.K. Rowling Goes Off on Twitter After a Guy Calls Theresa May a 'Whore'

If you’re a sexist “liberal cool guy” and J.K. Rowling follows you on Twitter, consider yourself warned. The Harry Potter author ripped into an unknown man after he called British Prime Minister Theresa May a “whore.”

“Just unfollowed a man whom I thought was smart and funny, because he called Theresa May a whore,” Rowling wrote. “If you can’t disagree with a woman without reaching for all those filthy old insults, screw you and your politics.”

The 51-year-old England native was just getting started.

“I’m sick of ‘liberal’ men whose mask slips every time a woman displeases them, who reach immediately for crude and humiliating words associated with femaleness, act like old-school misogynists and then preen themselves as though they’ve been brave,” she says. “When you do this, Mr Liberal Cool Guy, you ally yourself, wittingly or not, with the men who send women violent pornographic images and rape threats, who try by every means possible to intimidate women out of politics and public spaces, both real and digital. ‘C***’, ‘whore’ and, naturally, rape.”
