New York [US], June. 14 (ANI): Donald Trump added another noted name to his list of 'blocked' victims on Twitter, as celebrated author Stephen King found himself in a particularly sticky wicket...but not for long. The horror-fiction genius has vociferously and consistently taken on Trump since well before the November election. King announced on Tuesday that he had been blocked from viewing the U.S. President's tweets. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. I may have to kill myself.</p>&mdash; Stephen King (@StephenKing) <a href="https://twitter.com/StephenKing/status/874646427091251201">June 13, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Interestingly, the tipping point for Trump seems to have been a few jibes aimed at the President's Cabinet and his daughter Ivanka. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">If Ivanka Trump had grown up in farm country, like some of us, she&#39;d know her father is reaping exactly what he sowed.</p>&mdash; Stephen King (@StephenKing) <a href="https://twitter.com/StephenKing/status/874372033492156420">June 12, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Immediately, prominent Trump critic and literary icon JK Rowling came to King's rescue and promised that she would keep him informed of the President's tweets. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I still have access. I&#39;ll DM them to you. <a href="https://t.co/MhibEYDBTg">https://t.co/MhibEYDBTg</a></p>&mdash; J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) <a href="https://twitter.com/jk_rowling/status/874646794436739072">June 13, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> King responded quickly showing his gratitude to Rowling. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Thanks. Maybe it&#39;s a hoax. I&#39;m good either way. I&#39;ll always have Pence, hahahaha.</p>&mdash; Stephen King (@StephenKing) <a href="https://twitter.com/StephenKing/status/874678286152077312">June 13, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Being blocked by Trump caught King so off guard that he first questioned whether it was a hoax!
