In the wake of the Paris, France, terror attacks, Murdoch took to Twitter to voice his opinions on jihadi attacks, in which he claimed that even peaceful Muslims should take responsibility. He wrote that Muslims must "recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer."
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
The News Corp boss' controversial tweet sparked outrage on Twitter, but he followed it up with another comment about political correctness.
Big jihadist danger looming everywhere from Philippines to Africa to Europe to US. Political correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy.— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) January 10, 2015
However, Rowling does not agree with Murdoch's statements and she took to Twitter on Sunday to link to an article about his comments and blast his views on Islam.
I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I'll auto-excommunicate. http://t.co/Atw1wNk8UX— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 11, 2015
The Cuckoo's Calling author then followed up her first tweet by sarcastically saying she was responsible for the horrific acts that occurred during the Spanish Inquisition. She also mockingly claimed responsibility for American televangelist Jim Bakker.
.@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
Rowling was not done there, though: she responded to a Twitter comment that blasted her for not doing proper investigation by providing a link to an article and writing, "Eight times more Muslims have been killed by so-called Islamic terrorists than non-Muslims."
Murdoch, for his part, did not respond to Rowling mocking him but he did praise the "heroic sacrifice" of one of the French police, Ahmed Merabet, who was killed during the attacks in Paris last week.
Extraordinary scenes in Paris today, but do not forget the heroic sacrifice of Ahmed Merabet, Muslim police officer whose funeral was today.— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) January 11, 2015
