“Harry Potter” Author J.K. Rowling Calls Out Twitter After Receiving ‘You Are Next’ Threat from Supporter of Salman Rushdie Attack

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling called for Twitter’s guidelines to be better enforced after she received a death threat on the social media platform in response to her sympathy for writer Salman Rushdie, after the violent attack in New York. Rushdie, who has been under a death threat from Iran since the 1980s, was attacked and stabbed just before he was scheduled to deliver a lecture on Friday. Video footage from the incident shows the writer being taken to a medical helicopter in order to be transported to a hospital.

Coward ended up deleting his own Twitter account.
