NEW YORK: J.K. Rowling had a few words for Rupert Murdoch.
The â€œHarry Potterâ€ author responded sharply to Murdochâ€™s tweet that while â€œMaybe most Moslems peaceful,â€ all were responsible for â€œgrowing jihadist cancerâ€ until they worked to destroy it.
Murdochâ€™s tweet Friday came two days after the deadly terrorist attack in Paris at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. The media mogul also tweeted: â€œPolitical correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy.â€
Rowling sent a handful of tweets Sunday attacking Murdoch. She wrote that since she and Murdoch were both Christians, she felt responsible for him and would â€œauto-excommunicate.â€ She mockingly accepted the blame for the Spanish Inquisition and for any violence by Christian fundamentalists.
â€œOh, and Jim Bakker,â€ she added, referring to the American televangelist who was jailed for fraud. –AP
