Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling officially apologized for the death of one of her characters via Twitter.

She wrote:

“Once again, it’s the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts so, as promised, I shall [apologize] for a death. This year: Remus Lupin.”

In Rowling’s series of Tweets on Monday, she also explained:

“Arthur [Weasley] lived, so Lupin had to die. I’m sorry. I didn’t enjoy doing it. The only time my editor ever saw me cry was over the fate of [his son] Teddy.”

Last year, Rowling apologized for killing Fred Weasley, another fan-favorite character from the Harry Potter series.

Pretty much into her character she is, don’t you think? Perhaps they are more than fictional to her.
