Please don't start flame wars.

Hey, Potterheads! Today, 2 May 2017, marks the 19th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, during which lives were lost and hearts were broken irreparably.

Also good triumphed over evil and all was well and stuff. But most importantly, the deaths.

And it's become kind of a tradition in recent years for J.K. Rowling to apologise, on the anniversary of their death, for killing off one of the characters who died during the battle.

Back in 2015, she apologised for killing Fred Weasley. And I think I can speak for all of us when I say: It's still not OK, Jo.

HE HAD SO MUCH MORE TO OFFER. 😭😭😭

Arthur lived, so Lupin had to die. I'm sorry. I didn't enjoy doing it. The only time my editor ever saw me cry was over the fate of Teddy. 😢

And the tradition lives on, because J.K. just tweeted an apology for another death. And, oh my god, it's a big one.

"WHO COULD IT BE?" I hear you cry. "IS IT COLIN CREEVEY, WHO SNUCK BACK INTO THE CASTLE AND DIED BEFORE HIS TIME BECAUSE HE WANTED TO FIGHT ALONGSIDE HIS HERO?"

And, OK, some people love Snape and were sad when he died.

@jk_rowling Why would you even bring that up?

@jk_rowling im still very sad about it and i miss him everyday but thanks for the apology

But mostly people just think, in that case, justice was served. And there are characters more deserving of apologies.

@jk_rowling you really didn't need to apologise for that one it's chill

@jk_rowling I'd like to apologize louder on your behalf for one Lily Evans Potter

  1. What do you think? Is Snape deserving of an apology, or did he get what was coming to him?

    Yes! I was devastated when Snape died!
    No, he was an awful person and he deserved everything he got.
    JUSTICE FOR LILY POTTER!!!!!!
