J.K. Rowling has hit out at Donald Trump supporters on Twitter
Hours after slamming US Vice President Mike Pence amid the travel ban with a biblical tweet, the author hit back after a number of users said they had burned their Harry Potter books in anger.
One person wrote to her: "@jk_rowling glad I caught this article on Yahoo. I will now burn your books and movies too."
The 51-year-old hilariously responded: "Well, the fumes from the DVDs might be toxic and I've still got your money, so by all means borrow my lighter."
Meanwhile, another post stated: "@jk_rowling just burned all my Harry Potter books after being a fan for 17 years.

Far from perturbed, Rowling went on: "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."
The writer's uploads have been liked more than 500,000 times by her 9.37 million followers as she continues to wow the online community.

"I'd just like to thank everyone sending me lovely messages, which greatly outnumber the bad ones. I'm now off to produce more kindling…" she later quipped.
Among the supportive messages was one that stated: "@jk_rowling I'll buy 2 copies of every book to make up for this and I'll donate the second copy to an interested reader. Takers?"
Rowling then joked: "Actually, we're thinking of selling them in pairs in future; a 'read one, burn one' deal for those who like the magic, but not the morals."
