The Westboro Baptist Church probably wishes they had access to an invisibility cloak right about now.
J.K. Rowling, the author behind the “Harry Potter” book series, took the hate group to task when they criticized a tweet Rowling posted about Gandalf and Dumbledore now being able to marry in Ireland.
A Twitter account associated with the WBC posted a reply featuring the group’s trademark “God Hates Fags” slogan and saying it would picket the wedding ceremony between the two fictional characters.
Here is Rowling’s reply:
.@WBCsigns Alas, the sheer awesomeness of such a union in such a place would blow your tiny bigoted minds out of your thick sloping skulls.
At the time of this publishing, the tweet has been retweeted almost 4,000 times and favorited almost 8,000 times. Rowling has been a longtime supporter of marriage equality and posted several tweets in favor of the recent vote in Ireland to legalize gay marriage.
