People Are P*ssed At JK Rowling Because Apparently Sirius Black Isn't Gay

People Are P*ssed At JK Rowling Because Apparently Sirius Black Isn't Gay

If you've ever ventured on to Twitter, you'll know a few things. 1. It's full of Harry Potter fans, 2. JK Rowling tweets a lot and 3. Things can escalate really quickly.

Over the past few days, JK's timeline has been littered with people asking her if Sirius Black is gay. Given that she's always keen to reveal little tidbits and secrets about the franchise, questions no doubt pour in all the time. However, this one got a little bit out of hand because JK wasn't responding, and was tweeting about politics instead. Then, #SiriusBlackIsGay started trending...

Upon receiving a constant barrage of tweets, JK decided to change her Twitter bio to address some FAQs. @Schreiberland got a screenshot before it was changed...

Now apparently it wasn't actually about Sirius, but is about Jeremy Corbyn - and not his sexuality, but something entirely different.



However, this was totally disregarded, it got messy and people were infuriated...

Within a few hours, #JKRowlingIsOverParty was the top trend in the UK, but plenty of people stepped up to defend the author.

Crikey. What a fuss! She soon edited her bio...

Now, we know that representation is so important in this day and age, but just because JK hasn't said whether the character is gay or not, doesn't mean he can't be in your head. Plus, there are wayyyyy more important things to put your time and effort into, like the real LGBT people fighting for equality every day, rather than a fictional character.

What do you think?
