    Rowling loses her magic with Harry Potter edits

    Fans are begging J.K. Rowling to stop retroactively editing their longtime favorite fiction property, the Harry Potter series, with her desire to follow modern trends, leading Harry Potter and his wizarding friends down an unexpected path.

    After announcing that there were two Harry Potters and that Professor Dumbledore and dark wizard Grindelwald had “an intense sexual relationship,” Rowling decided to reveal another bizarre detail about Hogwarts itself.

    “Hogwarts didn’t always have bathrooms,” said the verified
    @PotterMoreMischievous Twitter account.

    “Before adopting Muggleplumbing methods in the eighteenth century, witches and wizards simply relieved themselves wherever they stood, and vanished the evidence,” the user wrote.

    Not all the fans appreciated this discourse. Some of them even doubted that Rowling wrote this tweet. Many fans agreed that it would be better if Rowling wouldn’t mention such controversial and new details.

    The tweet garnered 6,900 comments, many questioning the detail.

    Not only have these latest statements confused fans, but her new movie scripts continue to leave fans unsatisfied as well.

    After a major disappointment of Rowling’s unclear Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald script, the author has tried to appease her fans after its release.

    In an interview with pop culture website Comic Book, Rowling announced that in an upcoming movie, she would add a new surprising character.

    “It’s been an amazing opportunity to tell parts of the backstory that never made it into the original books. I’m thinking particularly of one character that I think fans will be surprised to meet in this movie,” said Rowling.

    Based on Harry Potter fans’ reaction, Rowling has to slow down with any new statements. Even though, according to The Guardian, the story about Harry Potter is included in the top five best-selling books of all times, her new creation, Fantastic Beasts with its unexpected twist and edits, has already lowered Rowling’s status.
