Murdoch tweeted Friday about a "growing jihadist cancer" following the Paris terror attack

J.K. Rowling is not a big Rupert Murdoch fan.

After Paris was hit by a recent terror attack at satire magazine Charlie Hebdo's offices that left 12 dead, Murdoch tweeted Friday: "Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible."

The media mogul also added that the world was being threatened by "big jihadist danger" and blamed "political correctness" for people turning a blind eye to it.

Now, the Harry Potter author has fired back at Murdoch on Twitter. "I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I'll auto-excommunicate," Rowling tweeted Jan. 11.

She also pointed out that issues have been caused by people practicing Christianity and Catholicism, citing the Spanish Inquisition and televangelist Jim Bakker. "Eight times more Muslims have been killed by so-called Islamic terrorists than non-Muslims," she added.
