BBC Three, which targets millennial viewers, first tweeted the pair of photographs. One showed a sparse crowd at the 2017 inauguration and another, far more crowded, aerial photograph of Saturday's wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

"Just saying," the tweet from the BBC said, including an emoji for good measure.

Several hours later, Rowling tweeted the same photographs and captioned them, "Love> Hate." Both tweets quickly went viral, earning more than 150,000 likes combined.

The inauguration crowd size became one of the first controversies to swallow the Trump administration, when, a mere hours after moving into the White House, the president boasted that his crowd size amounted to "an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout."

Then-press secretary Sean Spicer also railed against reporters who doubted the president's claim, telling them that it was "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe.” Both claims were widely disputed.

"Photographs of the inaugural proceedings were intentionally framed in a way in one particular tweet to minimize the enormous support that had gathered on the National Mall," Spicer said a day after, referring to a composite comparing the Obama's crowd size to Trump's.

In 2017, Spicer told The New York Times that he regretted castigating reporters over the issue.

"Of course I do, absolutely,” Mr. Spicer said.
