The beautiful thing about Twitter is that anyone can try to start a conversation with anyone.

That can take the form of a very public spat between any number of pop musicians.

Or it can take the form of some good-natured ribbing between an NFL team and a video game.

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling revealed that Albus Dumbledore was gay back in 2007 at Carnegie Hall, but apparently some fans still can’t seem to wrap their heads around it.

On Twitter Tuesday, a girl named Ana Kocovic reached out to Rowling and asked about the decision to make the Hogwarts headmaster a homosexual.

“Thank you so much for writing Harry Potter,” Kocovic wrote. “I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can’t see him in that way.”

And just like magic, Rowling responded with the most perfect tweet ever.

The girl ended up thanking her and apparently deleting all of her tweets. Her profile now says her name is Gellert Grindelwald, whom Rowling previously said was Dumbledore’s love interest.

“Amazing answer,” she replied. “Yes you are absolutely right. Such an inspiration!”

Lebanese host Rima Karaki was interviewing Islamic sheik Hani Al Sibai last week on Al-Jadeed TV about why some Christians would want to join ISIS.

When he started to drag on, she interrupted him to keep the conversation moving, but he was not pleased at being told what to do.

“Listen, don’t cut me off,” he said. “I will answer as I please.”

She politely warns him that they are running out of time, and he rudely tells her to “shut up,” and that it is “beneath” him to be interviewed by her.

Eventually she just cut his mic to put a stop to it.

“Had I not answered, I would have hated myself, and I don’t want to hate myself,” she told The Guardian. “When he said shut up, it was no longer possible to shut up because I would be insulting myself and would lose everything.”

The confrontation between the two has since gone viral, and Sibai is demanding an apology from the network.

The video now has over 5 million views, and Karaki is getting lots of support from viewers on Twitter.

CEO of News Corp Rupert Murdoch (aka the "Lord Voldemort" of media moguls) posted a very controversial message on Friday, saying that all Muslims should be held responsible for the actions of Islamic extremists.

He also added that "political correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy."



His tweets come just a few days after the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Needless to say, this statement did not go over well with people online, especially the 23 percent of the world's population whom he just accused of terrorism.

But over the weekend, "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling came to their defense, firing back at Murdoch with this absolutely perfect Tweet.



She also took responsibility for the Spanish Inquisition, all Christian fundamentalist violence and televangelist Jim Bakker.

Meanwhile in Norway…

Meet Harald V, King of the Trolls (also King of Norway).

In a recent interview with NRK TV, Harald said he will soon be going to Antarctica to visit his country's research station called "Troll."

The station was opened nearly 10 years ago by his wife, Queen Sonja, who is sitting next to him.

Watch the video above (with subtitles) for the punchline.

Oh Harald.

Following a benefit concert for a Seattle group looking to raise the minimum wage, Tom Morello and his party were denied entrance to the 5 Point Cafe. After blasting out his complaints on social media, the owner of 5 Point came back around on Facebook with a burn that some astronomers say you can see from orbit:



Or as some might put it, "** you, I won't do what you tell me."
