Stephen King Invites Trolling After He Uses His Banned Word ‘Amazing’ In A Tweet—And The Responses Were A Bit Unexpected ❤️

If there had to be an official referee calling the fouls for writers everywhere, Stephen King, author of countless bestsellers like It, Carrie, The Shining, and The Shawshank Redemption, would be a shoo-in for the position. So when he took to Twitter on October 28 announcing that the word “amazing” should be retired from every writer’s vocabulary, people paid attention. The era of “amazing” was over!

But a couple weeks later, while praising Dominique Rocher’s new film, The Night Eats the World, King broke his own rule.

Within two minutes, King had caught his mistake. Instead of taking the tweet down, however, he accepted whatever consequences Twitter felt he deserved.

For perhaps the first time, however, Twitter decided trolling King didn’t seem right.

Most people couldn’t bring themselves to think up a scathing retort—this is Stephen King we’re talking about!

Plus, we all know he’ll be even more careful not to use the “a-word” in the future.

Of course, there were one or two people who managed to get just a little bit snarky…

But, for the most part, Twitter is full of nothing but love for the King of horror. We know you’ll do better next time, Stephen!
