J.K. Rowling Had A Magical Response To An Absurdly Rude Question Someone Tweeted At Her Today

JK Rowling

Harry freaking Potter. God, isn’t it just the best? Growing up, I was o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d with the franchise. Midnight book releases? Hell yeah. Arguing about what would and wouldn’t happen in the upcoming novels? Literally all of my childhood. Late night movie debuts? Yeah, I was first in line.

It was magical, and thanks to technology, adult-children, and this never ending obsession, we occasionally get a nod from the magical wizarding world.

Starting yesterday, J.K. Rowling took to Twitter to answer some fan questions about “Harry Potter,” writing, and life in general. As always, she managed to answer hard, awkward, and downright rude questions with grace and a little bit of sass thrown in.

She was honest when fans asked about rejection.

She was comforting when fans put themselves down.

But then one user decided to tweet a tweet that should never be sent to the woman who gave us Hogwarts, Horcruxes, and “Harry Potter.”

I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can’t see him in that way.

For some reason, this “fan” didn’t seem to realize that NO ONE gets to diss Albus on J.K.’s watch. What she said next has sent a slow clap across the world.

In a world that’s finally leaning toward accepting people of all shapes, sizes, races, religions, and sexual preferences, J.K. Rowling hit the nail on the head. She has been a long-time supporter of the LGBT community, even more so after “outing” Albus Dumbledore in 2007.

Bravo J.K., and as the great Dr. Seuss once said, “A person is a person, no matter their magical ability.”
