J.K. Rowling Stands Up to Trolls on Election Night, Gives Hope for Future: 'Challenge Racism, Misogyny, & Hatred'

J.K. Rowling, author of the “Harry Potter” book series, did not stand for any trolls bullying her on Election Night (November 8).

When one fan told her to stop speaking to the trolls, she responded, “Ramon, I know you mean well, but tonight of all nights I’m going to say it. Ignoring spite, and hate, and bullying, doesn’t work. The easy thing is to be silenced because you don’t want the insults. The easy thing is to look the other way when it’s happening to others. The easy thing is to keep your head down & let the bullies run amok. The right thing to do is to challenge racism, misogyny and hatred. I don’t give a damn what trolls feel. Speaking up is about letting the people who are being intimidated know they’re not alone.”
