Unexpectedly, “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling has apologized to fans for killing Severus Snape in the sought-after wizardry series.
In commemoration of the May 2 anniversary of the fictional Battle of Hogwarts, Rowling amused fans by apologizing for curtailing the professor, who was known as an exemplary potion-maker madly in love with Potter’s mother, Lily Evans.
“Okay, here it is. Please don’t start flame wars over it, but this year I’d like to apologize for killing (whispers)… Snape. *runs for cover*,” she tweeted on Tuesday.

But “Harry Potter” fans lost their cool and began pounding Rowling with tough reactions. One Twitter user remembered Snape’s cruelty toward Potter and his classmates at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. “He (Snape) also bullied Harry and tried to make his school life hell just because he was petty and bitter,” he replied.
Meanwhile, another user reminded fellow fans, “While it hurts to remember, we must. Never forget the sacrifices made through the Battle of Hogwarts!”
