JK Rowling is being hounded because she followed on Twitter somebody who expressed an opinion that was entirely uncontroversial until five minutes ago. In the past, she has already had to apologize for accidentally liking an ideologically unsound tweet.
Rowling is extremely rich, so she’ll be fine. But what about you? Can you guarantee you never liked, followed or retweeted something that will become extremely objectionable sometime in the future?
Obviously not if you are on this blog.
