J.K. Rowling Says Criticizing Trump Is Both A ‘Pleasure’ And A ‘Duty’

Meryl Streep made headlines Sunday night when shewent after President-elect Donald Trumpduring a speech at the Golden Globes.The award-winning actress called out Trump for his bullying of a disabled reporter, saying disrespect invites disrespect and violence incites violence. The address made many Hollywood heavyweights proud, with severaltweeting their support and admirationfor Streep.

Across the pond, Harry Potterauthor J.K. Rowling was also inspired. In response to a tweet that referenced the speech, Rowling made clear that she intended to follow Streeps lead in vocally criticizing Trump, which she said was not onlya pleasure, but a duty.

Rowling was a vocal critic of Trump during his candidacy, once comparing him to the Harry Potter series most sinister character, Lord Voldemort. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad as Trump, she tweeted.

After the Golden Globes, the president-elect took to Twitter to call Streep one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.

When a Twitter user pointed out to Rowling that Trump might come after her next, she had the perfect response.

Just like Streep, it doesnt appear that Rowling will be clamoring for Trumps approval anytime soon.
