Harry Potter Author JK Rowling Receives Death Threat

Two days after renowned author Salman Rushdie was attacked in New York, the fantasy book series writer “Harry Potter”, J K Rowling, received a death threat.

Learning after the attack on Rushdie, Rowling took to Twitter to say, “Horrifying news. Feeling very sick right now. Let him be ok.” And on the post, an user commented, “Don’t worry you are next.” He had previously described Matar as a “revolutionary Shia fighter”.

Rowling on Saturday shared the screenshot of this comment and asked Twitter to take cognisance, tagging @TwitterSupport, “Any chance of some support?”

She later confirmed that the police were now involved.

“To all sending supportive messages: thank you. Police are involved (were already involved on other threats),” Rowling wrote.
