Not many have been happy ever since they got to know some years ago that Dumbledore was indeed gay and had feelings for Grindleward in his youth. But never have we seen JK Rowling lash out so publically on someone like this before!

Frank Fraticelli, a Twitter user, tagged Rowling in a post which read: "Once u revealed Dumbledore was homosexual I stopped being a fan. Nice how u blindsided us with that one. Enjoy your billion $."

To which, Harry Potter creator and multi-billion dollar writer replied: "I advise you to start following Brian Souter at once. He's much more your kind of person."

To let you know, Brian Souter is a money-minting Scottish businessman who is openly anti-gay in his beliefs and regularly funds and supports protests against the homosexual community.

In this 'win' of the week, Rowling also earned a lot of praise from her fans and replied to them saying: "I want to thank all the people tweeting me lovely messages. Don't worry about me – to paraphrase Albus Dumbledore ..."

Frank, however, seems to have deleted his account since the incident and the tweet from the writer is also missing.
