Stephen King didn’t exactly show off his true writing skills on Twitter the other day.

The best-selling horror author received a good amount of backlash after a couple of tweets-gone-wrong. The tweets were sent in response to Dylan Farrow’s open letter in the New York Times reiterating her assertion that actor Woody Allen had molested her when she was 7-years-old.

Writer Aaron Bady came to the defense of Farrow’s letter, asking the reader to interrogate his or her allegiance to Allen’s “good name,” to which King replied with a sarcastic and short tweet (which has been deleted.)

The tweet said, “Boy, I’m stumped on that one, I don’t like to think it’s true, and there’s an element of palpable bitchery there, but…”

King quickly learned the Twitter game, realizing the Twitterverse is a lot smaller than he had imagined.
