Not that they ever will, but trolls should really learn a lesson and try not to pick a fight with JK Rowling on Twitter; or anywhere else really (psst she knows magic).

Though she's best known for her children-friendly book series in which a genocidal wizard is murdered by a magical orphan, Rowling is quite explicit when it comes to voicing her opinion on issues she's passionate about. The British author is a vocal critic of Brexit and the UK government's handling of the crisis and, when it comes to expressing her views, she minces no words.

Rowling recently came under fire from fervent supporters of British politician Jeremy Corbyn, after she criticised his stance on Brexit, a topic that has deeply divided Britain for a long time now.

You would think it only makes sense not to try and take down one of history's best-selling authors through a medium that utilizes the written word, but no one ever accused trolls of intelligence.

After being continuously heckled by Corbyn supporters for her while, Rowling finally put her foot down, and picked up her phone. Over the course of a long Twitter thread, which she composed in Shakespearean-era English, Rowling delivered her retort, and it is truly breathtaking.

Read the whole epic thread, comprising of 16 tweets in sequence, below.
