If social media is good for anything, it offers a fantastic platform for witty comebacks. J.K. Rowling used it for just such a purpose after Rupert Murdoch riled folks with his Charlie Hedbo-related tweet insisting all Muslims need to be held accountable for the actions of the men behind last week’s attack in Paris. Instead of just shouting back, Rowling turned his own twisted logic against him, posting “I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I’ll auto-excommunicate.”

And folks in the Twitter-verse seemed to agree with her, as her tweet quickly earned more than 20,000 favorites, compared to Murdoch’s 3,000.
