13. J.K. Rowling
America was not alone in watching this whole thing go down and feelings of either joy or deflation towards the result seems to be strong everywhere. Support and/or anger came from celebs from all over the world, especially across the pond. One of those just so happened to be beloved author J.K. Rowling.
We stand together. We stick up for the vulnerable. We challenge bigots. We don't let hate speech become normalised. We hold the line. https://t.co/ro9AkRSc9Q

Nobody can weave a web of words quite like the creator of the of Harry Potter. It’s clear from her tweet, as well as her previous statements, this outcome was not the one she was rooting for. Regardless, it’s nice to have such an inspirational voice be there to attempt at providing some healing for those who surely need it.
