Piers Morgan Rips JK Rowling Over ‘Elitist, Superior, Arrogant’ Brexit Tweet

Media personality says “Harry Potter” author’s “bulls—” is “precisely why Brexit (and Trump) won”

Piers Morgan has again taken aim at “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling.

British media personality Morgan, who has a history of criticizing Rowling on social media, took another shot at her on Friday, over a tweet Rowling posted about Brexit, the contentious referendum to withdraw the United Kingdom from the European Union.

Rowling’s tweet was in response to Daily Telegraph political correspondent Christopher Hope, who tweeted, “Why do owls get the right to a commemorative stamp but Brexit doesn’t?”

To which Rowling replied, “Stamps are too small to depict the fact that nostalgic jingoism, fear-mongering, racism and flag-waving delusion narrowly won a referendum, thereby dividing the nation down the middle and ensuring longterm consequences for our society and economy, whereas owls are great.”

As it turns out, Morgan gave a hoot about Rowling’s sentiment, and let it be known in no uncertain terms.

“Of course, this kind of elitist, superior, arrogant ‘we know better than you thickos’ bulls— is precisely why Brexit (and Trump) won,” Morgan shot back.
