Their comments reminds me how big the world is and how many more decent people there are than not
– Rowling wrote.
Recently she tweeted that some abusive comments crossed a line of her personal life and that there are a lot of difficulties in being a famous woman on Twitter, but she constantly believed in resisting to bullies.
Last year, after Rowling’s £1m donation to the campaign for a No vote in the Scottish independence referendum came to surface, she faced a harsh criticism from the public. Besides, she same amount she granted to the Labour party in 2008.
Later Rowling revealed to be called ‘a traitor’ because of her political views. She had immediately blocked the most abusive Twitter users and supposed that they might have supported the Scottish National Party (SNP).
I feel no responsibility to hush up that kind of behavior to protect the image of any political party
-she told to one Twitter user.
JK Rowling also said that she answered to other SNP supporters, who were delicate and responsive, and even had discussed how much she had in common with them in political views.
Besides, she even joked that she would ‘bring marshmallows’ as a response to user’s tweet that her books should be publicly burned, to show that she wasn’t prone to quarrel or arguing.
In Thursday’s election the SNP took 56 of the 59 seats in Scotland and became the third largest party in the UK.
