Ridley Scott's newest film, the historical epic "Exodus," came under fire earlier this week for casting Christian Bale and John Edgerton in its main roles instead of actors of Middle Eastern descent. And that's when media giant Rupert Murdoch decided it would be a good time to put his foot in his mouth while defending the picture.

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.
