UPDATE (2/12/2017 10:52 a.m. ET):

Things just got real. 

After J.K. Rowling slammed Piers Morgan for his support of Donald Trump on Real Time with Bill Maher, the British television personality lashed out at the author. And it didn't end there.

Not pleased with the Harry Potter author's words, Piers lashed out at her, saying her attitude is why he's never read a word of her books. Of course, J.K. had the clapbacks ready to go. 

Things continued to escalate when J.K. mockingly asked Piers if he'd like time to fake photographs of refugees carrying explosives to back up his assumptions that letting in refugees would danger the American public. Piers went on Real Time with Bill Maher that night to express his support for Trump's recent travel ban on Muslims. 

Piers fought back by insulting J.K.'s support of Hillary Clinton.

The Brits continued to brawl with J.K. calling Piers "fact-free", "amoral", and "toady." The author also burned the television journalist pretty bad by referencing her books, equating Trump to the villain and Piers to a suck-up.

Not letting J.K. label him as a bully, Piers turned the tables and called anti-Trump celebrities the bullies for belittling the president and his supporters.

However, J.K. wasn't the only author to tackle Piers. The Fault in Our Stars writer John Green also lambasted the television personality's behavior. 

Piers shut him up with a simple question. 

Original story (2/11/2017 8:21 p.m. ET):

Piers Morgan is receiving some major pushback over his support for President Donald Trump's immigration ban, and the criticism seems to be coming from every angle.

The 51-year-old journalist appeared on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher on February 10 alongside Australian comedian Jim Jeffries, and let's just say the two didn't exactly see eye-to-eye when it comes to politics.

During an argument about Trump's immigration ban, Jim told Piers to "f—k off" and compared the president to Adolf Hitler.

"This is what you do, Piers. You say, ‘He hasn’t done this, he hasn’t done that, he’s not going to do all these things.'

"Give him a f—king chance, mate. Hitler didn’t kill the Jews on the first day, he worked up to it," the funnyman says in the NSFW clip below.

And Jim isn't the only celeb taking the British journalist to task over his controversial views.

Author J.K. Rowling got into an epic Twitter spat with her fellow countryman after seeing the exchange between him and Jim.

"Yes, watching Piers Morgan being told to f—k off on live TV is *exactly* as satisfying as I'd always imagined," the 51-year-old tweeted.

Piers then responded that he had never read any Harry Potter books, to which J.K. had the best reply.

"@piersmorgan If only you'd read Harry Potter, you'd know the downside of sucking up to the biggest bully in school is getting burned alive," she wrote.

Check and mate.
