A fan recently reached out to J.K. Rowling via twitter about their confusion on popular Harry Potter character Dumbledore being gay. The tweet has now been deleted but not before the author had a witty response.
The tweet stated:
“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,” wrote Ana Kocovic.
J.K. Rowling responds:
.@anakocovic21 Maybe because gay people just look like… people?
