J.K. Rowling apologises to Harry Potter fans for killing off Professor Snape

hebJ.K. Rowling has apologised to Harry Potter fans for killing off Professor Snape in the original series of novels.

The antihero of the wizarding series, Severus Snape’s death in the final book – The Deathly Hallows – came just before the revelation that the Hogwarts professor had in fact protected the eponymous protagonist and acted on the side of good rather than evil throughout his life.

Taking to Twitter earlier today (May 2), Rowling made the announcement to mark the ‘anniversary’ of The Battle of Hogwarts, which takes place in the final chapters of the last book. “Please don’t start flame wars over it, but this year I’d like to apologise for killing (whispers).. Snape. *runs for cover*” she wrote.
