JK Rowling Apologizes for Killing Snape

J. K. Rowling is still trying to atone for her sins within the “Harry Potter” fandom. Since the series’ conclusion, the “Harry Potter” author has apologized for killing off several characters, including Fred Weasley and Remus Lupin. This year, she’s added yet another character death to that list.

Rowling took to her Twitter page to voice her regret over killing the Hogwarts potions professor fans loved to hate, Severus Snape.

Of course, this tweet riled up the starved “Harry Potter” fandom, which only has the recent film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” to satiate itself. With fans falling in either the “Snape got what he deserved” camp or the “Snape was redeemable and should have been given a second chance” camp, the Internet is once again abuzz over “Harry Potter.”

The question, then, is if Rowling should make this apology campaign an annual thing. There are plenty of characters she’s killed aside from Fred and Lupin; is she going to apologize for every one of those characters, even though it’s well within her right as the author to decide characters’ fates as she sees fit? At what point do the apologies undo the meaning that any of the characters’ deaths have? Questions for another day and time, but for now, fans are left wondering what the book series would have been like if Snape had actually lived.
