Stephen King Says President Trump Has Blocked Him On Twitter

"Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. I may have to kill myself."

Posted on June 13, 2017, at 2:28 p.m. ET

On Tuesday, horror writer extraordinaire Stephen King tweeted that Donald Trump had blocked him on Twitter.

Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. I may have to kill myself.

King has been consistently vocal on Twitter in opposing Trump's presidency.

I wish anyone other than Donald Trump--left, right, or center--were taking the Oath of Office tomorrow. My preference would be Barack Obama.

In response to the block, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling offered to relay Trump's tweets to King.

I still have access. I'll DM them to you.

@jk_rowling @BevVincent Thanks. Maybe it's a hoax. I'm good either way. I'll always have Pence, hahahaha.

Other people made jokes about the ~horror~ of the situation.
