JK Rowling's Response To A Fan Who Asked 'Why Is Dumbledore Gay?' Is Everything
Note to self: Never question JK's decisions when it comes to Harry Potter characters...
JK Rowling has won at Twitter yet again after responding to a fan's question in the most perfect way.
On Tuesday (March 25) the Harry Potter author replied to a fan who expressed her confusion at Dumbledore being gay, asking: “Thank you so much for writing Harry Potter. I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can’t see him in that way.”
The original Tweet has since been deleted, though Rowling was quick off the mark to answer the fan's question, writing: "Maybe because people just look like... people?"
Rowling previously said when she revealed Dumbledore’s sexuality: “It has certainly never been news to me that a brave and brilliant man could love other men.
“He is my character. He is what he is and I have the right to say what I say about him."
