This Harry Potter "Fact" Has Some Fans Shook And Some Saying "WTF I Knew That"

    Just another day on Twitter.

    Remember back in 2011 when the last Harry Potter film came out and we were all heartbroken because it was the end?

    Well, we were wrong. Hot on the heels of the "wizards shitting themselves" info that went viral last week, people are now freaking out about Harry's scar.

    Twitter user @todayyearsoldig shared this revelation that Harry's scar is the same shape as the hand motion for the curse that gave it to him.

    Did you know Harry Potter’s scar isn’t a lightning bolt, but actually the hand motion to cast Avada Kedavra

    That screenshot on the right is from the Harry Potter wiki.

    This isn't really new information, you can find people talking about it online over the last few years. Still, fans (and non-fans) are shook.

    @todayyearsoldig I’m not even a Harry Potter fan and I’m surprised af

    Did you know harry potter’s scar is not a lighting bolt but the hand motion to cast avada kadavra ; the killing curse ? Yeah me neither i just did

    Now, I don't want to spoil anyone's fun but I have a few pieces of evidence. Back in 2007, JK Rowling told fans that she gave Harry that shape scar because it looked cool.

    Also I'm 95% sure that wand movement was revealed during Pottermore's heyday, meaning that the reason it's a lightning bolt is BECAUSE of Harry's scar.

    And people are running with the shocking headline: "Apparently, Harry Potter's scar isn't actually in the shape of a lightning bolt," which is a real stretch of the facts, right?

    But also, any day where we're all talking about Harry Potter is a good day by my standards, so carry on I guess.
