Tributes and vigils have been taking place across the world in the days following Monday’s bomb attack in Manchester.

The Eiffel Tower went dark on Tuesday to honour the victims. This is something that’s been done before in the wake of previous terror attacks. It’s meant as a show of solidarity, and a way to pay tribute to those who lost their lives.

On Wednesday, journalist and Fox contributor Laura Ingraham took to Twitter to question the reasons for the Eiffel Tower going dark.

While her tweet was shared over 500 times, many people criticised her for condemning what they saw as an act of empathy.

On Thursday morning, J.K. Rowling waded in.

At the time of writing Laura Ingraham had yet to respond (she’s on East Coast time so she may not be up yet).

Based on how ruthlessly efficient Rowling can be in a Twitter debate, though, she may be better off letting this one lie.
