Johnny Depp's Joining 'Fantastic Beasts' and the Fans Aren't Too Pleased About It

If you'd told us that Johnny Depp would be starring in a Harry Potter spinoff series, and especially in light of the more recent domestic violence accusations, we'd have said, no way; but alas, here we are. The fans don't seem all too stoked about the news.

J.K. Rowling, in her never ending quest to become everyones "cool aunt" on Twitter, has offered up some inspiration in the form of rejection letters.  


The pictured letters are both tiny and a little blurry but if you put on your reading glasses you might see that one is a polite and short dismissal and the other is apologetic and offers some helpful tips after saying "No, thank you." 

This was part of a discussion where Rowling also answered questions and, as usual, offered a response to a fan that was both supportive and wise. 



See, just like everyone else, J.K. Rowling got rejected a few times before becoming an international sensation. Take away her fame and she still gets rejected every now and then.

JK Rowling spent her day on Twitter congratulating parents of Harry Potter-themed children. Meet Hermione, who was named for the character in Rowling's magnum opus, and Sophia, whose mother read HP while she was pregnant, which probably was not the cause of Sophia's facial birthmark, but hey, magic happens.

After yesterday's casting news of a black Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, fans took to Twitter and began riffing on other characters in the series with different nationalities. JK Rowling even joined in to express her fondness for a few with praise and retweets.

Somebody draw these, stat!

CEO of News Corp Rupert Murdoch (aka the "Lord Voldemort" of media moguls) posted a very controversial message on Friday, saying that all Muslims should be held responsible for the actions of Islamic extremists.

He also added that "political correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy."



His tweets come just a few days after the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Needless to say, this statement did not go over well with people online, especially the 23 percent of the world's population whom he just accused of terrorism.

But over the weekend, "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling came to their defense, firing back at Murdoch with this absolutely perfect Tweet.



She also took responsibility for the Spanish Inquisition, all Christian fundamentalist violence and televangelist Jim Bakker.

J.K. Rowling and Piers Morgan Are Engaged In Spellbinding Twitter Duel, and Morgan's Son Made It Exponentially More Awkward

J.K. Rowling's back at it again with the barrage of well-articulated rage Tweets, and her latest victim is the Piers Morgan. Poor Piers is having a particularly bad case of the Mondays. Might be time for someone to up and drink his lunch to numb some of the pain. Oh, and a word of friendly advice to our recent Rowling-roasted dude of the hour, Piers Morgan: don't go to the Twitter killing floor against a world-acclaimed wordsmith who has a notorious reputation for methodically, publicly, destroying Twitter aggressors that failed to fly under her radar. The odds are ever not in your favor when you're Rowling In the Deep, man. At least Morgan's son, Spencer pulled through at the end with a silencing, entirely unexpected slice of comedic relief.

Donald Trump harry potter twitter J.K. Rowling Once Again Had the Perfect Harry Potter Themed Response to a Person Who Said Something Horrible

Author J.K. Rowling is known for her scathing quips toward people who say things that are sexist, racist, homophobic or generally awful. Also she wrote the very, very famous Harry Potter Series.  

This time she tweeted back to a Donald Trump spokeswoman who made a zenophobic remark regarding Americans born outside the U.S. who are (or would like to be) leaders of the country. 

Ouch, Katrina Pierson. You need a freezing spell for that burn?

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling revealed that Albus Dumbledore was gay back in 2007 at Carnegie Hall, but apparently some fans still can’t seem to wrap their heads around it.

On Twitter Tuesday, a girl named Ana Kocovic reached out to Rowling and asked about the decision to make the Hogwarts headmaster a homosexual.

“Thank you so much for writing Harry Potter,” Kocovic wrote. “I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can’t see him in that way.”

And just like magic, Rowling responded with the most perfect tweet ever.

The girl ended up thanking her and apparently deleting all of her tweets. Her profile now says her name is Gellert Grindelwald, whom Rowling previously said was Dumbledore’s love interest.

“Amazing answer,” she replied. “Yes you are absolutely right. Such an inspiration!”

J.K. Rowling Back At It Again, Lashes Out and Insults Donald Trump In the Most British Way Possible

J.K. Rowling would seem hellbent on keeping herself entertained post-Harry Potter through regularly preying upon unsuspecting Twitter personalities, or just Donald Trump all the time. Usually, she digs a bit deeper into the well of razor-sharp and unforgiving witty banter. This particular insult though, is just kind of awkward.

J.K. Rowling and Ricky Gervais Team Up for a Sass-Packed Twitter Throwdown After Donald Trump's Fake News Tweet

I'm not so sure what J.K. Rowling's doing these days in the way of wrestling the blank page, taking pen to paper, etc; but dude, her ongoing Donald Trump-themed saga via Twitter has certainly got the people entertained -- Harry Potterheads and otherwise. Her whiplike wit and infectious snarkiness is keeping it light in these trying and predictably ridiculous weeks.
