“Harry Potter” creator J.K. Rowling shredded a critic on social media for asking “how do you sleep at night?”
The best-selling author, whose estimated net worth is just over $1 billion, has become a target of the “woke” mob for questioning the transgender agenda.
Despite having progressive views on almost every other topic, Rowling has been labeled as a “TERF,” or trans-exclusionary radical feminist, by the Left.
Because Rowling refuses to toe the line with her fellow leftist celebrities regarding the trans agenda, many “Harry Potter” fans feel conflicted about continuing to support the beloved franchise.
However, the British novelist is still doing just fine financially, despite the public outcry.
“How do you sleep at night knowing you’ve lost a whole audience from buying your books,” one critic asked the billionaire writer on social media.
Rowling shredded the critic with an epic one-line comeback.
“I read my most recent royalty cheques and find the pain goes away pretty quickly,” she tweeted.

The comments were flooded with support for the author from fans who either agree with her views or don’t let their disagreements stand in the way of their Harry Potter fandom.
“My A* English grade was 100% achieved through my love of reading Harry Potter from when it was first released,” one follower shared.
“Growing up and being a similar age with the releases was so wonderful.
“It definitely sparked my love of literature!”
“You’ve made my day,” Rowling replied with a heart emoji.
“I have to say that you deserve every penny you receive,” another fan wrote.
“My nephew, like many boys, was struggling in his English classes but after discovering (and devouring!) your books he obtained a solid pass and has never looked back having obtained a GCSE [UK high school exams] that every child needs to progress.”
“That’s genuinely the most amazing thing I could ever hear,” Rowling commented back.
“Send him massive love from me!”
Earlier in the month, Rowling blasted critics who identified her as right-wing simply for questioning the trans agenda, even though she’s an outspoken liberal.
“I say this as someone who’s been on the liberal left all her adult life: own goals don’t come any more spectacular than ‘if you care about child safeguarding you must be right wing,’” Rowling tweeted at the time.
