‘Harry Potter’ Creator JK Rowling Responds Perfectly to Fan Who ‘Can’t See’ Dumbledore Being Gay

Harry Potter author JK Rowling deserves to be on the cover of Witch Weekly for this one.

After a young fan of the world’s best-selling book series tweeted at 49-year-old Rowling, the creator behind the wizarding world had a succinct, poignant reply that reconfirms she’s one of the coolest people out there.

The now-defunct Twitter account @anakocovic21 tweeted yesterday saying, “@jk_rowling Thank you so much for writing Harry Potter. I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is gay because I can’t see him in that way.”

Jo’s response?

“@anakocovic21 Maybe because gay people just look like… people?”


It’s ‘mischief managed’ for this internet troll in the dungeon who critiqued Dumbledore’s homosexuality. See Jo’s awesome response!
