CEO of News Corp Rupert Murdoch (aka the "Lord Voldemort" of media moguls) posted a very controversial message on Friday, saying that all Muslims should be held responsible for the actions of Islamic extremists.

He also added that "political correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy."



His tweets come just a few days after the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Needless to say, this statement did not go over well with people online, especially the 23 percent of the world's population whom he just accused of terrorism.

But over the weekend, "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling came to their defense, firing back at Murdoch with this absolutely perfect Tweet.



She also took responsibility for the Spanish Inquisition, all Christian fundamentalist violence and televangelist Jim Bakker.

After yesterday's casting news of a black Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, fans took to Twitter and began riffing on other characters in the series with different nationalities. JK Rowling even joined in to express her fondness for a few with praise and retweets.

Somebody draw these, stat!

Author J.K. Rowling is known for her scathing quips toward people who say things that are sexist, racist, homophobic or generally awful. Also she wrote the very, very famous Harry Potter Series.  

This time she tweeted back to a Donald Trump spokeswoman who made a zenophobic remark regarding Americans born outside the U.S. who are (or would like to be) leaders of the country. 

Ouch, Katrina Pierson. You need a freezing spell for that burn?

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling revealed that Albus Dumbledore was gay back in 2007 at Carnegie Hall, but apparently some fans still can’t seem to wrap their heads around it.

On Twitter Tuesday, a girl named Ana Kocovic reached out to Rowling and asked about the decision to make the Hogwarts headmaster a homosexual.

“Thank you so much for writing Harry Potter,” Kocovic wrote. “I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can’t see him in that way.”

And just like magic, Rowling responded with the most perfect tweet ever.

The girl ended up thanking her and apparently deleting all of her tweets. Her profile now says her name is Gellert Grindelwald, whom Rowling previously said was Dumbledore’s love interest.

“Amazing answer,” she replied. “Yes you are absolutely right. Such an inspiration!”
