Here's an objective truth: JK Rowling has done more good in the world than you or I will EVER do. Not only has she brought a lot of joy to a whole bunch of people through her insanely popular Harry Potter series, but she's the rarest kind of millionaire you can find: the kind that USED to be a billionaire....until she donated away so much money to charities that she got downgraded.
And despite this, she receives a pretty good amount of abuse online - which isn't TOO surprising, given she's a politically-vocal celebrity on Twitter, but is still something of a bummer when you look at how ANGRY complete strangers are at a person they've never met and has never done them any harm. Luckily, JK Rowling is a pretty stellar writer, and as such has become the queen of comebacks - particularly in 2017, where (due to the political climates in both the US and the UK) she has really let loose.
Of course, not everything is politically-minded comebacks - some of it is just plain ol' ragging on idiots:

Well, the fumes from the DVDs might be toxic and I've still got your money, so by all means borrow my lighter. pic.twitter.com/kVoi8VGEoK-- J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 31, 2017
Guess it's true what they say: you can lead a girl to books about the rise and fall of an autocrat, but you still can't make her think. pic.twitter.com/oB7Aq6Xz8M-- J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) February 1, 2017
And it's not limited to just random Twitter trolls sending her abuse on a daily basis - JK Rowling knows who her real foes are...the people who are actually IN POWER:
