On May 2, the 17th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, Rowling tweeted an apology for killing of one of Harry Potter's most beloved characters.

Today I would just like to say: I'm really sorry about Fred. *Bows head in acceptance of your reasonable ire*

It incited a lot of feelings from Potterheads.

One of the fans even asked about Tonks and Lupin.

To which Rowling answered:

.@Brieuc26Rankin I thought I might apologise for one death per anniversary. Fred was the worst for me, so I started with him.

We're right there with you, Rowling.
