The much-publicised row between his controversial columnist father and Rowling emerged after the novelist expressed her delight in watching Morgan be told to "f**k off on live TV".

J.K. Rowling's Twitter feud with Piers Morgan has captured the internet's attention for the past few days, but she demonstrates just how good at trolling she's gotten after baiting Morgan with his own words.

Online hostilities between the two broke out after Rowling tweeted about Morgan's appearance on HBO chat show Real Time with Bill Maher, during which co-host Jim Jefferies told him to "f*** off" while discussing Donald Trump's travel ban.

A fiery war of tweets followed, with Morgan dubbing her "superior, dismissive and arrogant" and Rowling branding him a "celebrity toady".

Rowling laid a cunning trap for Morgan, by innocently tweeting what appeared to be Valentines' message from one of her fans. The 51 year-old author took to Twitter and posted a photo of a post, which termed her an "intensely" private, successful author, who has encouraged children "to read, feel inspired and be creative".

The piece was entitled "The 100 British celebrities who really matter", and it was Piers who had described JK in such a wonderful way and placed her 97th on the list.

Piers took the bait and retorted to the tweet saying Rowling plays the celebrity game 'abusively and ruthlessly'.
