Murdoch used Twitter to call “Moslems” to task over the incident collectively, saying that they should be held responsible for the actions of the terrorists.
Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) January 10, 2015
Rowling responded with her own tweet, claiming that being born as a Christian must make her responsible for Murdoch, as well as any other atrocities done in the name of her religion throughout history.
I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I'll auto-excommunicate. https://t.co/Atw1wNk8UX— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 11, 2015
.@dom209 The Spanish Inquisition was my fault, as is all Christian fundamentalist violence. Oh, and Jim Bakker.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 11, 2015
Score one for Rowling.
