If you’re a Twitter user and follow either JK Rowling or Piers Morgan, you probably know they don’t see eye to eye.

Their online war of words began when the Harry Potter author commented on Morgan’s appearance on Real Time – an American talk show where members of the media shouted at him for claiming Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were as bad as each other.

She tweeted: “Yes, watching Piers Morgan being told to f— off on live TV is *exactly* as satisfying as I’d always imagined.”

To which Morgan responded: “This is why I’ve never read a single word of Harry Potter.”

At the heart of their latest argument was a tweet by Rowling which included a screenshot of an article singing her praises.

Clearly incensed by the author’s self-praise, Morgan responded by calling the article “Priceless #humblebrag BS” and seemed to be unaware it was his own work. It was in fact a list entitled ‘The 100 British celebrities who really matter by Piers Morgan’ published by the Daily Mail.

As expected, Morgan later claimed he was fully aware the writing was his own work.
