Piers Morgan is still trying to recover from the Twitter burns he received at the hands of J.K. Rowling, an undisputed champion at the art of social media sabotage.

So, he asked another author, 50 Shades of Grey and 50 Shades Darker author E.L. James, for some help salving his wounds. Unfortunately for the British TV personality, she only added fuel to the fire.

Here was Morgan’s request.   

And James’s response?

Oh, from which book was that passage?

Where can Morgan turn next for some help? Perhaps British romance novelist Jojo Moyes, who boasts almost 98,000 Twitter followers? Well, maybe not.

Or perhaps Monty Python legend, screenwriter, and author John Cleese

Or maybe Morgan should just lay off Twitter for a while.
