It’s comforting to know a couple of things:
a. Even after all these years, there are still passionate Harry Potter fans; and
b. Even after all these years, JK Rowling will still take the time to discuss the characters in the beloved franchise.
Last night, she took to Twitter to defend Severus Snape after a young fan tweeted this.
Of course the fans of the series went crazy with this and the twitterverse debated the Snape ‘does he have ANYTHING redeeming about him at all’ question for hours.
Rowling remained somewhat patient but at times had to referee the passionate Twitter fans.
She ended the debate with this.
Well, thanks to everyone who participated in today's unplanned debate: "Snape: Good, Evil or What?" People to dinner - got to go! xxx— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) November 27, 2015
Even famous authors put their phones away at the dinner table.
