J.K. Rowling had to police the internet again.
The organization didn’t go into further detail to reveal what possible link there could be between Daley’s sexuality and his athletic performance. But Rowling, who has a laudable history of schooling bigots online (see examples 1, 2, 3, 4) immediately leapt to her fellow countryman’s defense.
Her tweet is now going viral, with dozens of other Twitter users going after the organization ― and even calling for Rowling to unleash some dark magic on its members.
The online backlash hasn’t deterred Christian Voice, which later posted this message:
A brief look through the Christian Voice’s Twitter timeline revealed similar contempt for gay marriage, Islam and gender identity.
The Huffington Post has reached out to Christian Voice for comment.
