For anyone still thinking she's not a monster:



She's gone full mask-off at this point, huh? How did she get on twitter at her big age and post this attacking some random stan who got a cute tattoo based on her work... and then BULLY them???? Oof.

(EDIT: Is this real? Hate basing an opinion off an image alone and no one corroborating.)

(EDIT 2: Not feeling this one. But read below for my extremely disappointed reaction were it real, yippee!)

---------------------

What the everloving fuck? Wow. Especially ironic considering Harry lived with his abusive family in a closet.

Do I... really want to share my Harry Potter books with my kids?

I mean, I'd share Lovecraft's stories at some point I suppose, so maybe, but... god damn.

I'm trying to think of a way this might be misinterpreted but fuck, that seems pretty blatant considering the photo she's replying to. Gross.

She'll just retcon her being homophobic later on in a tweet.

Seriously, she's a nutcase.

It's probably a joke about how Harry lived in a closet or whatever.

Still, she sucks because she's a TERF so I am not giving her the benefit of the doubt at all.

I also can't find the tweet like others are saying.

As a short straw choice I started reading Harry Potter to my two year old at bedtime a few months ago. She really like it and says "Potter?" when it's bed time. We're halfway through the third book and I'm starting to have serious reservations about continuing the series. What the fuck is wrong with this lady?

She immediately deleted it. Even in that screenshot it says "tweets aren't loading" because it was deleted after a minute or two. She must have forgot she wasn't signed into her troll account

Tell them it came from space, like Minecraft. Problem solved
Her name is still gonna be in the book covers for them to see. Keeping it a secret to who she may backfire if they ever think of googling it. This is not like Notch with it only being in the credits.

Harry wouldn't have become who he was if he didn't' live in a closet?

That's really the only possible thing I can think of. And saying that Harry HAD to be abused is still a really fucked up thing to say if that's what she was going for.

I want to hope that this is just a very, very, very lame Harry Potter joke but I know it isn't.

Hopefully fake!

White it out, repaint the art, and write "Space" over her name. Come on, I can't do all the work for you.

Joking aside, if it's any consolation, as a kid I gave ZERO shits about the author 90% of the time.

I think the insinuation is that Harry Potter lived in a closet for 12 years and became a great person. Without the context the meaning is completely twisted, not to say being tone deaf is an excuse though

It's the only way that tweet makes sense to me

Or it's fake

This seems pretty fake.

Honestly, it's bizarre how obsessed some are with putting others on pedestals and then rushing to tear them down.
