Look. I am obsessed with everything Harry Potter, but some things involved in the new Fantastic Beasts movies are making it very hard to stan.
Like how they've cast an abuser as Grindelwald? But we won't get into that now because we have bigger pumpkin pasties to fry: DUMBLEDORE WON'T BE GAY. Well, not explicitly, and that's just as bad.
Every Potterhead knows that Dumbledore and Grindelwald had an epic battle which broke down their relationship. It was good vs. evil... but what humanised it was that Dumbledore was gay, and they were in love.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, director David Yates was asked about Dumbledore's sexuality and if the film would finally address it.
"Not explicitly," he said. "But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology and each other."
The publication points out that author J.K. Rowling had previously admitted that Dumbledore's sexuality would be portrayed at some point in the five-part series, so why is it being brushed aside?!
Some fans were already pretty annoyed that Jude Law - a heterosexual actor - was cast as Dumbledore since there was every opportunity to put a gay actor in that position. And now this seems to be the icing on the non-gay cake that we so expected would be rainbow frosting.
Fans online have expressed their disappointment, demanding that the movie gets it together.
J.K. Rowling has since responded to the intense backlash, posting one of her usual sassy tweets.
"Being sent abuse about an interview that didn't involve me, about a screenplay I wrote but which none of the angry people have read, which is part of a five-movie series that's only one instalment in, is obviously tons of fun, but you know what's even more fun?" she wrote, alongside a GIF of a mute action.
"Yep. Twitter without the mute button would be hell. (Heaven would be an edit button," she added.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set to premiere on November 16, 2018.
