One could imagine that after selling 500 million copies worldwide, one could be retired from work right? But Rowling loves to write.

She launched her new book "Troubled Book", a thriller where the main character is a man who dresses up as a woman. Now, the fans decided to "kill" her at least on Twitter after several allegations where she allegedly mocked the trans community. 


We talked about already about the power of social media and the fans. They can even create awesome fans campaigns like the latest #BieberSecretDM or change movie scripts and designs like "Sonic the Hedgehog". Fans didn't love the animation of his face, and they had to delay the release in order to change it.

Now, Rowling is in trouble, but we are sure that it will be all fixed after she apologizes. Hopefully, this ends well, and we can all remember and laugh about the day the fans almost killed the writer virtually!
