J.K. Rowling slammed a Twitter hater on Saturday, after the follower said Serena Williams is “built like a man.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Williams won her sixth Wimbledon title in London earlier Saturday, and Rowling was one of the many celebrities who took to Twitter to congratulate the superstar athlete. The Harry Potter sent out a number of celebratory tweets, including one that read, “#SerenaSlam! I love her. What an athlete, what a role model, what a woman!”

In response, a Twitter user named Rob with the handle “@diegtristan8,” wrote, “ironic then that main reason for her success is that she is built like a man.” The judgment did NOT sit well with Rowling, who has become known for her epic replies to Twitter haters.

Rowling fired back with two photos of Williams in a curve-hugging, cleavage-showing red dress, writing, “.@diegtristan8 ‘she is built like a man.’ Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. You’re an idiot.” And rather than admitting he just got owned, Rob has spent the time since defending his point.

Rowling’s comeback, though, made her a trending topic in the United States. Tell us what you think of the exchange in the comments below. Williams is pictured above at the Vanity Fair Oscar party earlier this year.
