Stephen King is getting the last laugh.

After being blocked on Twitter by Donald Trump in June, the famous horror writer got revenge on the president Thursday evening by declaring that he’d be returning the favor — by blocking Trump from seeing the upcoming film “IT” and television series “Mr. Mercedes,” both based on works by King.

IT” hits theaters Sept. 8.
