Scotland’s Police said on Sunday (14) they are investigating a report of an “Online threat” made to the Author J. K. Rowling after she tweeted her condemnation of the stabbing of Salman Rushdie.
The Harry Potter creator said she felt “Very sick” after hearing the news and hoped the Novelist would “Be okay”.
In response, a user said “Don’t worry you are next.”
After sharing screen shots of the threatening tweet, Rowling said “To all sending supportive messages: thank you Police are involved (Were already involved on other threats).”
A Spokesperson for Scotland’s Police said “We have received a report of an online threat being made and Officers are carrying out enquiries.”
