.@sjosiah0 The Internet doesn’t just offer opportunities for misogynistic abuse, you know. Penis enlargers can also be bought discreetly.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) May 8, 2015
The exchange comes as misogynistic attacks on Twitter have been in the spotlight. Ashley Judd has been vocal about receiving graphic threats over Twitter, and has criticized the company for its "inadequate" response. Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon recently quit Twitter, leaving many to speculate it was over harassment he received over the film, though he later said he quit so he could concentrate on writing.
