Attention Harry Potter fans: You now have another reason to love his creator J.K. Rowling. The outspoken British author has responded to Internet trolls in the past, taking down a Twitter hater who didn't appreciate her voicing her political opinions, and coming back with clever answers to tricky questions from her fans. And this past weekend, she struck again. As her friend Serena Williams competed in the Wimbledon ladies' finals, she tweeted words of support, writing "I'm #TeamSerena today, because you don't meet many super-talented people nicer than she is. Go @serenawilliams!," she wrote and showed her support throughout the entire match.

So when a Twitter user replied to J.K. Rowling "Ironic then that main reason for her success is that she is built like a man," it will come as no surprise that she came to her friend's defense. She posted this picture and caption: "Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. You're an idiot."

I think this match goes to Rowling!
