J.K. Rowling accused Mike Pence of hypocrisy with her latest Twitter post
The Harry Potter author – who has been vocal on the American political climate since Trump announced he was running for President – once again wade in on the debate by disparaging Pence on the social networking site.
Following news of President Donald Trump's travel ban, which bars people from seven muslim countries from entering the US for 90 days, Rowling re-tweeted a tweet that Pence had posted back in December 2015, which read: "Calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. are offensive and unconstitutional."
Quoting the Bible, Rowling wrote: "'For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?' Matthew 16:26."

Despite the backlash from Trump supporters, J.K. made sure to show some loves for those who were on her side.
"I love you people. Half my timeline right now is pointing out that Harry Potter never turned anyone into a frog & that Hermione was the nerd," she enthused.
The tweet came a day after Rowling hit out at the policy for being outdated, writing: "When I worked for Amnesty International in the 80s, these were the kind of stories told by political prisoners in dictatorships."
