Folowing the attack, Rowling tweeted: “Horrifying news. Feeling very sick right now. Let him be ok.”
Shortly after posting the message, Rowling shared the image of a reply she had received which read: “Don’t worry you are next.”
The author initially tagged in Twitter’s support account, 書き込み: “Any chance of some support?」

“Police are involved (were already involved on other threats).」
Rowling is one of several authors to have reacted following the shocking attack on Rushdie this week.
Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and Nigella Lawson are also among the voices to have expressed shock and send messages of support to the 真夜中の子供たち 著者.
Rushdie was once the subject of a fatwa, prompted by the publication of his novel 悪魔の詩.
