Yesterday, J.K. Rowling was asked a question about Dumbledore on Twitter and her response was sassy as hell.
In 2007, J.K. Rowling revealed that the headmaster of Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore, was gay.
Eight years later, Rowling is still questioned about Dumbledore’s sexuality, and criticised for writing a gay character.
Yesterday, a fan called Ana asked Rowling about it, admitting that she couldn’t see Dumbledore as “a gay”.
The always fabulous Rowling had a few choice words for her:
Nicely done, @jk_rowling… pic.twitter.com/7tc2KQCOvl

The fan conceded to Rowling’s wise answer.
@jk_rowling amazing answer… Yes you are absolutely right. Such an inspiration!!! — Ana Kocovic (@anakocovic21) March 24, 2015
Rowling revealed Dumbledore’s sexual orientation shortly after the final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was published. She told fans that the Hogwart’s headmaster was once in love with his childhood friend, Gellert Grindelwald, who later went on to become an extremely dangerous dark wizard. This isn’t the first time Rowling has had to defend Dumbledore’s sexuality, or the rights of the LGBT community. Last December, she was asked this question on Twitter:
@jk_rowling it’s safe to assume that Hogwarts had a variety of people and I like to think it’s a safe place for LGBT students — tati kendrick (@superheroskye) December 16, 2014
Her response was amazing.

Keep fighting the good fight, Rowling.
