LONDON — As we learned from Donald Trump’s replies that time he tweeted about Brexit, British people have a limited tolerance for Americans spreading misinformation about life in the UK.

This time around, American author Janie Johnson was in Twitter’s firing line.

Johnson’s website describes her as “An American Citizen”. She previously wrote a book called Don’t Take My Lemonade Stand — an attack on the US political system which, according to the promo image below, comes with “special sections to help you teach your kids common sense Conservative values”.

On Sunday evening, Johnson sent the following tweet.

It wasn’t long before the shut downs began rolling in.

Then the piss-taking started.

So much piss-taking.

At this point it shows no sign of abating.

The lesson? If you tweet about London, be prepared for Londoners to respond.
