JK Rowling Just Apologized For Snape’s Death On Twitter And People Don’t Know How To Feel About It

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.

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
