Harry Potter author JK Rowling has been making some pretty big announcements about the characters in her novels and people on Twitter aren’t having any of it.

She is currently facing backlash for her comments during an interview she gave as part of a special feature for the BluRay release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Rowling took the opportunity to reveal that Harry’s mentor, Dumbledore, was involved in a pretty intense relationship with Grindelwald, which has fans fuming that “her characters from her books and movies are gay everywhere except the books, movies”.

Fans took the opportunity to point out to Rowling that claiming her characters are gay years after the books were published with no indication of their sexuality whatsoever was not inclusivity and went on to make some pretty funny, yet extremely not safe for work, jokes about the whole thing.
