In case you hadn't noticed, J.K. Rowling's been taking time out of her busy schedule of writing amazing books to school Twitter's resident troll (opens in new tab) Piers Morgan. The two have been sparring for a few days now, but Rowling just changed the game.
Apparently, the Harry Potter author was sent an excerpt of Morgan waxing poetic about her several years ago, and published it with this cheeky caption:
Just been sent this! Could the writer let me know who he is? I'd love to thank him! #Valentines pic.twitter.com/OQtbxPD6ALFebruary 14, 2017
The thing is? Morgan didn't appear to realize he wrote the above musing, and hit back with the following:
Priceless #humblebrag BS. Nobody plays the celebrity game more abusively or ruthlessly than you, Ms 'Intensely Private Billionaire'. https://t.co/5ysnfefa3dFebruary 14, 2017
Of course, the internet was quick to point out that said quote was literally his own:
Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. He doesn't realise. This is the best day of my life. pic.twitter.com/fl0lFPHXf5February 14, 2017
Never one to back down, Morgan quickly tried to save face. You know, by calling everyone a "quarter-wit" and being generally insulting.
Relax, quarter-wit, I knew what it was. Just surprised I put her as high as 97th. https://t.co/HCzx4Ius4EFebruary 14, 2017
