The controversial row over women being banned from wearing full bodysuits on some French beaches was highlighted after pictures surfaced of a woman appearing to remove her clothes under the watchful eye of an armed French officer. 

The former president then labelled the swimwear offensive, claiming that “wearing the Burkini is a political act, it is militant, a provocation.”

Cue stage left, the award winning JK Rowling! The OBE writer didn’t let the former president escape from her Goblet of Fiery tweets that easily, highlighting the hypocritical standards women face when it comes to their bodies. 

Posting on Twitter, Rowling wrote:

Consider yourself expelled Mr Sarkozy.
