J.K. Rowling recently revealed the sexual preferences of two big characters in the Harry Potter universe despite no one asking. This has sparked the internet to mock the Harry Potter author with hilarious jokes and “no one” memes.
At the 6:45-mark of this YouTube video titled “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald Bonus – Distinctly Dumbledore,” author J.K. Rowling provides some insight into the sex lives of Albus Dumbledore, played by Jude Law, and Gellert Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp. The commentary was for DVD feature and Blu-Ray for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and comes across more like sexual fanfiction.
“Their relationship was incredibly intense. It was passionate, and it was a love relationship,” Rowling said in the feature. “But as happens in any relationship, gay or straight or whatever label we want to put on it, one never knows really what the other person is feeling. You can’t know, you can believe you know.”
“I’m less interested in the sexual side — though I believe there is a sexual dimension to this relationship — than I am in the sense of the emotions they felt for each other, which ultimately is the most fascinating thing about all human relationships,” Rowling said.
Rowling did not include these details in the Harry Potter movies, which annoyed some fans and made her revelations seem insincere since she seems to be making this revelation as lip service in a DVD extra, but not in the movies.
J.J. Rowling offered these revelations despite no one asking about the sexual preferences of Dumbledore and Grindelwald. This sparked the “no one” meme on Twitter and Harry Potter fans struck with hilarious jokes. The “no one meme” was often the tweet format in the mockery of Rowling’s Potterverse revelations, but there were a variety of jokes about the Harry Potter author.
