Every year, on the anniversary of Battle of Hogwarts, JK Rowling takes to social media to pay homage to her characters — specifically, one that was killed in the final book. This year is no different, though it definitely brought about some emotional responses.
Last year, Rowling apologized for killing Fred, who was personally my favorite Weasley and DESERVED BETTER. This year she’s tackling a more controversial character: Severus Snape.
It definitely caused a reaction, that’s for sure.
People couldn’t agree on how to feel about Snape, who was one of the main antagonists throughout the book series.
Some people were more concerned with the fact that she hasn’t yet apologized for other (possibly more deserving) characters.
Whether or not you care for Snape, if you’re a Harry Potter fan, the reminder of all the characters who died in the last book probably makes you a little emotional.
Here’s to everyone we lost in the Battle of Hogwarts.
