JK Rowling and Harry Potter

Some fans still aren't happy.

In an unexpected turn of events, JK Rowling has apologised for killing off one of the most popular yet love-to-hate characters from the Harry Potter franchise. 

The author took to Twitter on the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts to apologise to fans for killing Professor Severus Snape, played by the late Alan Rickman.

Writing, “Okay, here it is. Please don’t start flame wars over it, but this year I’d like to apologise for killing (whispers)… Snape. *Runs for cover*”, the author announced that she was sorry for killing off the potions teacher. 

Since 2015, JK Rowling has made it a yearly tradition to apologise for killing off a character on the anniversary of the fictional Battle of Hogwarts. 

She started the tradition by apologising for Fred Weasley in 2015, and in 2016 apologised for Remus Lupin. 

Fans were divided about how they felt about this revelation.

Some wanted justice.

Some still reallllllly don't like Snape.

Some still can't come to terms with the loss.

Others think that it's important to remember.

Some even claimed that they'd never be able to forgive JK.

Whilst others wanted justice for Dobby.
