Meme Of The Week: JK Rowling Can’t Stop Talking About Harry Potter And The Internet Can’t Stop Making Fun Of It

After the publication of Harry Potter’s seventh and last book, author J.K. Rowling announced that Albus Dumbledore, one of the saga’s most beloved characters, was gay. At first, fans were excited and happy to have such representation, but then they began to question the fact that Dumbledore was made gay after the series ended and that there was no support of this information in the text.

Although the books ended many years ago, the Harry Potter world is still strong, with a Universal theme park, an award winning play, and a series of five movies based on Newt Scamander’s journeys, which supposedly concludes with the  epic wizard fight between Dumbledore and Grindelwald. It’s 2019 and we’re two movies into the saga, yet there’s still nothing gay about Dumbledore except the fact that he’s not dating women. And that’s kind of gay, right?

Rowling has used Twitter as a way of covering up holes in her stories, claiming that there were Jewish and gay people in Hogwarts, even if they don’t make appearances in the books. It’s kind of cute but also completely unnecessary. Some story gaps are best filled in by fans’ imaginations.

J.K. Rowling’s last comments on Dumbledore’s sexuality pushed the internet over the edge, making her the subject of this week’s meme. Here are some of the funniest Harry Potter sex memes:
