J.K. Rowling responds to fan criticism regarding Dumbledore’s sexuality

"I advise you to start following Brian Souter at once. He's much more your kind of person."

Although there are no more ‘Harry Potter’ movies to be made and the book series is long finished. There is still a lot of fans that want to know the ins and outs of the characters from the universe that J.K. Rowling so lovingly put together and presented throughout all the books and movies.

Back in 2007 it came to light that  Albus Dumbledore the lovable headmaster of Hogwarts was gay and seemingly one of Rowling’s fans was so ticked off by this fact that he took the time to make his small minded thoughts known on the twitterverse.

Rowling who has come under fire from many for her support for the Scottish ‘Better Together Campaign’ chose to hit back at the fan, who was responding to a tweet that she’d has made back in May.

In the tweet Rowling acknowledged the most recent anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, writing that she had “hated killing off” characters in the final book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The message prompted one Twitter user to respond today (September 6): “Once u revealed Dumbledore was homosexual I stopped being a fan. Nice how u blindsided us with that one. Enjoy your billion $ (sic).”

Taking issue with the message, Rowling replied by writing: “I advise you to start following Brian Souter at once. He’s much more your kind of person.”

Souter is a Scottish businessman known for his role in funding a campaign which aimed to prevent the Scottish government from repealing Section 2A of the Local Government Act.

The user attracted much criticism for his comment, later writing on his own account: “I made a comment about JKR + her homosexual wizard and my twitter account exploded. EXCUSE ME for NOT accepting that deviant lifestyle lol.”

Rowling first revealed that Dumbledore was gay back in 2007.
