JK Rowling tried to put down Momentum on Twitter, but it had the perfect response

It's fair to say there's no love lost between Harry Potter author JK Rowling and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. Just look at this tweet from 2016... Or her recent pre-Christmas thread which parodied Corbyn and his supporters and highlighted antisemitism on the left. And lo, unto her did appear a host of Corbyn defenders, who did descend upon her mentions, and she was not sore afraid, because she was used to it. And the host did sing with one voice, ‘ungodly woman, thou foolest us not. We know the true reason thou despisest Saint Jeremy.’ 1 — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) December 22, 2018 Now the author has taken to Twitter to criticise Momentum, the left-wing campaign group that was founded following Corbyn's successful campaign to lead the Labour Party. But Momentum fired back with a sarcastic put down of its own... We won't let them do it again. https://t.co/bprXJI7eBa — Momentum (@PeoplesMomentum) January 10, 2019 Unsurprisingly, Twitter was divided, with some users siding with Rowling... — Andrew Sisley (@AndrewSisley) January 10, 2019 But most replies seemed to side with Momentum as it wasn't clear exactly what Rowling took issue with in their original tweet. really cool that you take issue with a statement highlighting inequality - inspiring stuff — Davey (@norespawns) January 10, 2019 This and the tweet below are quite funny - love em or hate em, Momentum have just about the best social media team in the business IMO https://t.co/lj9Ma1ivWS — Adam Wagner (@AdamWagner1) January 10, 2019 I wish we lived in a world where billionaires had enough self-awareness not to sneer publicly at the idea of fighting inequality.
