The internet is like a bridge of sorts. It connects millions of people to a near-infinite amount of things. And like fairy tale bridges, trolls reside underneath. Well, proverbially speaking, of course. Trolls exist within the internet, and while they don’t necessarily stop you and ask for some password to get to where you’re going, they will stop at nothing to hinder your experience and make it a virtual living hell. Though anyone can get trolled, celebrities are more prone to them because of how forward-facing and accessible they are.

J.K. Rowling has, rather brilliantly, put the ones blowing up her Twitter mentions in their place. Unlike other famous faces, who sometimes clap back with cheap snark, Rowling, being the Brit that she is, serves her tea piping hot, with one pinky raised, and a little sugar on the side because that’s just common British courtesy. Of course, her responses are valid. They’re informed and always a little cheeky. Here are 15 of her best and realest of the real moments.


No sugarcoating here.



But, swear words are merely sentence enhancers!


Really makes ya think!

Life imitating art.

Clap back queen.

Who’s got the other stuff for some s’mores?

10 points for Gryffindor!

So sassy.

Boy, she ‘bout to do it!

Mic. Drop.
