J.K. Rowling Coined The Perfect Harry Potter Version Of "Mansplaining"
Perfect for when someone tries to explain it's leviOhsa not levioSAH.
By now if you aren't following Harry Potter creator J. K. Rowling on Twitter you're basically missing like 90% of the reason to be on Twitter at all.
Rowling uses Twitter to engage directly with fans, like every year when she apologises for killing off a beloved character. This year it was Dobby.
It's an incredible way for Rowling to continue to engage fans in the series of books and films despite Rowling's last book being published over a decade ago.
(It's also a great way for her to divert the ongoing criticism of casting Johnny Depp in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.)
Recently Rowling coined a whole new phrase, one for when fans of the series decide to explain her own creations back to her. It's basically the Harry Potter version of "mansplaining".
Something Hermione could have used probably every day at Hogwarts?
Posting a screenshot of a user who attempted to convince Rowling that Donald Trump was actually Snape, the 52-year-old author wasn't having any part of it.
Another fan joked with Rowling tweeting, "Don't you just love it when people tell you what your books mean?" Rowling simply replied:
Rowling also had a right good laugh at the President's expense when he tweeted a now-deleted post dedicated to his ability to write well.
"After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly like to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake."
Unfortunately for Trump the Fake News didn't need to look far considering he meant "pore over", not "pour".
When we say Rowling had a laugh at Trump's expense, we're not exaggerating.
Stay iconic, Joanne.
