Author JK Rowling, on May 2 apologised for killing the character of  Professor Severus Snape in her popular book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.


The apology came nearly a decade after the book’s official worldwide release (July 21, 2007) and on the “anniversary” of ‘Battle of Hogwarts, which saw many popular characters die in the book.



The ‘Battle of Hogwarts’, which signifies the end of the ‘Second Wizarding War’ in the Hogwarts School, saw the death of many popular characters, including Professor Snape, a character that the readers had loved to hate and who was killed by the “Dark Lord” himself.


In 2016, Rowling had also apologised for the death of Fred Weasley and Remus Lupin and sensing that her apology could start a “Twitter war”, she asked fans not to argue over her choice of character that was given to Professor Snape.

The tweet though did start a lively banter (if you can call it that) among the ‘Potter Heads’ which was hilarious to see…


As a true die-hard fan of the HP series, the author of this article ‘solemnly swears that she is up to no good and will not make any comment on the above tweet…’
