On Monday, Twitter user @mypolitics drew ire from Harry Potter author JK Rowling after writing that while he “got over” the Scottish vote against independence from England “ages ago,” “for some reason I’m still heartbroken that @jk_rowling called us ‘Death Eaters.'” Rowling herself soon responded, telling the Scottish nationalist to “get [his] facts straight.”

The Harry Potter author was quick to correct the user in a series of subsequent responses:

Eventually, @mypolitics wrote: “I think I’ve pissed off @jk_rowling” and issued a correction: “@jk_rowling didn’t call us all death eaters, just the abusive ones. Press twisted it to look like she meant all of us.” Rowling replied: “Let’s agree that the press misquoting me is not my fault and people calling me a whore is not yours. Have a nice day :)”

As The Telegraph notes, “Last summer, Ms. Rowling became the largest financial backer of the campaign to keep Scotland in the UK after donating 1 million pounds.”
