President Donald Trump reportedly blocked his Twitter account from being seen by author Stephen King, and J.K. Rowling responded to the apparent slight to offer her assistance.

The two authors, who have been outspoken critics of Trump, shared the Twitter exchange on Tuesday, after King's most recent tweets critical of Trump.

On Monday, King posted: "If Ivanka Trump had grown up in farm country, like some of us, she'd know her father is reaping exactly what he sowed."

On Tuesday, the horror author posted about Trump's cabinet before noting he had been blocked from seeing Trump's tweets, adding "I may have to kill myself."

No need for that, though, as the "Harry Potter" author stepped in, tweeting: "I still have access. I'll DM them to you."

King later posted questioning whether the message that he had been blocked was a hoax. King's representative told Time magazine that the notification that he was blocked "has now disappeared so [we] cannot verify if it was from Trump or just a prank."

Others have reported being blocked by the president on Twitter, sparking the hashtag #BlockedByTrump, CNN noted. Among them are Holly O'Reilly, who posted a Trump-critical GIF of Pope Francis, and Rob Szczerba, who posted a joke about Trump's post including the apparent nonsense word "covfefe," which drew widespread attention.

Twitter users were amused by the exchange between the popular authors.
