J.K. Rowling blasts the hypocrisy of sexist 'liberal' men in an epic tweetstorm.

She may not agree with Theresa May on politics, but she knows what it's like to get hit with unjust criticism.

After seeing a man on Twitter call British Prime Minister Theresa May a "whore," author J.K. Rowling unloaded on "liberal" men who engage in sexism.

"Just unfollowed a man whom I thought was smart and funny, because he called Theresa May a whore," she began as she offered an impassioned plea for people to criticize May's political opinions and actions instead of resorting to gendered slurs.

As a long-time supporter of the Labour party, Rowling doesn't have much in common with May (the leader of the U.K.'s Conservative Party) when it comes to politics. Still, Rowling knows what it's like to receive criticism based on one's identity instead of their deeds, which is what motivated her flurry of tweets.
