Twitter war over Serena escalates: JK Rowling slams troll for body-shaming the champion

GDN Online Desk

Manama: 'Harry Potter' author JK Rowling didn’t hold herself back when her favourite tennis star Serena Williams was trolled on social website Twitter.

Things went a little out of control when Rob, @diegtristan8, posted a comment on a congratulatory tweet from Rowling to Williams following her sixth Wimbledon win.

Rob commented that Serena was so successful because she was ‘built like a man’.    

Rowling was quick to set the record straight calling Rob an ‘idiot’ for his remarks, posting Williams’ images in figure-hugging dresses.

And after that Rob was slammed by many for his body-shaming remarks.

But this wasn’t the end of it, a Twitter battle has broken out since then, and support has poured in for Rob too.  

With both sides still continuing to attack each other, the clash shows no sign of abating soon.
