    Harry Potter Is Actually One Of The Worst Characters Of All Time

    The boy who maybe shouldn't have lived.

    You all know Harry Potter, aka The Boy Who Lived, as the hero of the famous Harry Potter book series by J.K. Rowling.

    He filled our childhood and adulthood with laughter, joy, tears, and sorrow. We devoured each book with the same kind of hunger we have after a night of drinking.

    And when it came time for the series to become a movie franchise, we waited outside movie theaters for HOURS arguing about which house was actually the best. We were thrilled to see our fantasy come to life.

    As iconic as the Harry Potter franchise is, it's time we had a talk about something. And that something is how Harry Potter actually sucks as a person.

    Now before you start, we know that this entire franchise wouldn't even exist without Harry. And for that we thank him. But that doesn't mean we have to like him.

    Let's get started.

    First of all, Harry was freakin' selfish. What's that you say? He sacrificed himself in the end to save the day? Sure, cool, good for him. But let's think about how many times people sacrificed their safety and possible LIVES for him.

    Harry took his anger out on others.

    Harry is kind of a fuckboy.

    Harry thinks he is above rules, which he displays continually by using his cloak to sneak out and be a real punk.

    He was completely reliant on others.

    He was a dick to Moaning Myrtle.

    And Harry loves being the center of attention.

    Harry doesn't freaking LISTEN.

    Harry refused to use his damn brain.

    He legitimately thought only about himself 97% of the time.

    He gets credit for everything even though he would have been dead in the first book without the help of his friends.

    He is cocky for no reason.

    He was stubborn AF.

    And, tbh, he plays the victim.

    Basically, Harry Potter is an asshole. The series is flawless, the story magical, and the main character annoying AF.

    Sincerely, someone who HAS read all the books.
