“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling is often outspoken about her political views on Twitter, and often gets trolls trying to take her down.

This week, J.K. took to Twitter and posted a quote, “‘You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.’ — Winston Churchill.”

A person with a frog face as a profile photo responded, “Quote very fitting to @realDonaldTrump. He stands up for something very very good and you are his enemy Mrs Sh*tty Writer.”

J. K. Rowling Shuts Down 'Cursed Child' Movie Rumors

Sad news for fans of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!

J.K. Rowling took to Twitter on Friday (January 20) to officially squash rumors that have been circulating about the hit play becoming a movie.

“I know a lot of people are looking for reasons to be cheerful today, but there is NO TRUTH to the rumour about a #CursedChild movie trilogy!” she wrote, seemingly referencing Inauguration Day.

The play opened in London last year, picking up Harry Potter’s story 19 years after the last novel ended.

There is a silver lining, though, as J.K. is still working on two new novels!

'Harry Potter & the Cursed Child' is Coming to Broadway!

Great news for Harry Potter fans who have been dying to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child but haven’t been able to travel to London!

J.K. Rowling‘s hit play will open at Lyric Theatre on Broadway in Spring 2018, producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender announced Wednesday (November 30).

According to a statement, “the remodeled Lyric will include a smaller auditorium redesigned to the specifications of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child team, as well as an adapted proscenium and stage that can house designer Christine Jones’ glorious set without swamping or compromising director John Tiffany’s brilliant staging.

VIDEO: Eddie Redmayne Was Sorted into Hufflepuff, Defends His 'Harry Potter' House in a PSA!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Eddie Redmayne is as big of a Harry Potter fanatic as the rest of us and the house that he was sorted into is Hufflepuff, one that is often ridiculed among fans of the franchise!

The 34-year-old actor is defending the house in a funny new PSA that he created for MTV.

“For far too long now, Hufflepuffs have been victimized,” Eddie says in the clip while looking like he is going to cry. “They call us boring. They call us beige. They say we’re the nice guys. But you know what? You know what I see in Hufflepuffs? I see loyalty. I see fierce friendship. We are hardworking, we are compassionate, and at the end of the day, we’re going to do the right thing, and not because of the glory. Not because of the glory, but for the greater good.”

Pictured inside: Eddie and the rest of the cast attending a premiere for the film on Tuesday (November 15) in London, England. In attendance were Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Carmen Ejogo, writer JK Rowling, and Eddie‘s wife Hannah Redmayne.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams also stepped out to see the movie!

FYI: Eddie is wearing head-to-toe Gucci. Katherine is wearing a Rodarte blouse and skirt.

Johnny Depp Steps Out After J.K. Rowling Defends 'Fantastic Beasts' Casting

Johnny Depp hits the red carpet after J.K. Rowling fiercely defended his Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them casting following his abuse allegations.

The 53-year-old actor was all smiles as he posed next to Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry at the Classic Rock Awards 2016 held at the Ryougoku Kokugikan Stadium on Friday (November 11) in Tokyo, Japan.

Other rock icons in attendance were Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine, Cheap Trick, Richie Sambora, and Orianthi.

Johnny will star as Grindelwald in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but the casting decision has caused some controversy because of his alleged domestic violence incidents.

Director David Yates has already spoken out to defend the casting, and now Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has done the same.

At the film’s world premiere on Thursday, she revealed that Johnny has “done incredible things” with the portrayal of the dark wizard and that she is “delighted” with the casting choice.

“He’s obviously a cameo in this film but going forward will obviously be more important,” she told People. “Watching Johnny create a character is really quite remarkable, it’s fascinating. It’s great as a writer to work with people like that.”
