J.K. Rowling can’t even follow her own Twitter advice. This gem about admitting when you’re wrong was published by her last December.
"No people are more frequently wrong than those who will not admit they are wrong."

As Twitchy readers know, Rowling posted a series of tweets falsely accusing President Trump of refusing to acknowledge a boy in a wheelchair during a White House event last week.

The tweets still exist, and there has been no apology. Since then, Piers Morgan and CNN’s Brian Stelter have slammed Rowling for her shameful promotion of a bogus story.

And now, it looks like her own Twitter account is being used to call her out.

I bet JK Rowling deletes this tweet before she deletes the false ones about Trump refusing to touch a handicap kid. https://t.co/DW42jvkQ68
