When it comes to the meaning of words, who are you more likely to trust — a widely beloved, massively successful author, or a guy who’s known for letting his fists and feet do the talking for him?

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling engaged in vocabulary-based combat with kickboxing champion and “Big Brother” alum Andrew Tate on Friday, after Tate accused Rowling of wanting President Donald Trump’s “D.”

The standoff came after Tate took a jab at Rowling on Thursday, accusing her of being “so madly in love with Trump,” after Rowling criticized the president’s tweet declaring, “IN AMERICA WE DON’T WORSHIP GOVERNMENT – WE WORSHIP GOD!”

“She’s confused in her child story mind, she can’t stop thinking of him,” Tate said of Rowling. “Pure lust for big D.”

On Friday, Tate apparently decided it was time for another round, after Rowling posted a multi-tweet criticism of Trump for seeming to ignore a wheelchair-bound boy’s attempt to shake the president’s hand.

This time, Tate, in addition to once again accusing Rowling of lusting after Trump, also took aim at her husband by suggesting that he’s a “cuck,” a favorite taunt of the alt-right.

“Told you. Every single tweet she tweets about the same man,” Tate wrote. “She’s attracted to an alpha. Her husbands prob a cuck. She wants Trumps D.”

Rowling, unwilling to let Tate’s blow go unanswered, took a swing herself.

“If you’re unfamiliar with the terminology, a ‘cuck’ is a man without a cartoon frog in his avi,” Rowling wrote, in an apparent reference to alt-right icon Pepe the Frog, “and an ‘alpha’ is a dick attached to a dick.”

Boom, head-shot. So to speak.
