J.K. Rowling Tears Into Westboro Baptist Church With Hilarious Tweet

“Harry Potter” author speaks out against hate group in wake of Irish gay marriage vote

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:

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.
