JK Rowling Apologizes For Killing Dobby In 'Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows'

JK Rowling has apologised for the saddest death in Harry Potter

Today marks 20 years since the (fictional) Battle of Hogwarts took place in the Wizarding World, where Harry Potter finally defeated Lord Voldemort. He later lays down his life for them in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

"At first I didn't like Dobby, but I wish I could be more like Dobby, his death in the book and the film always makes me cry", wrote one of Rowling's Twitter followers, to which the author replied she was touched by these kind words.

Rowling's obituary is one not aimed at a casualty of the Battle of Hogwarts, but a character that died shortly before it: Dobby the House-Elf. She's also apologized for killing Severus Snape, Remus Lupin, and Fred Weasley.

However one factor to rather distinguish it from the majors in recent years has been the nature of winners and contenders. Woods only returned to the PGA Tour this season after missing most of the previous two years through back injury.

May they rest in peace.

J.K. Rowling has apologized to "Harry Potter" fans again Wednesday for killing off a beloved character in the popular series.

This year, with the hashtag of #BattleofHogwarts, the authoress apologizes to her followers sincerely for the death of the supporting character "Dobby". His death, even though did not occur at the sight of the battle itself, has been the cause for much sadness and many tears shed by the fans.

Thousands rally as Armenia lawmakers set to vote on new prime minister
They're marching to the square for a mass rally to support the candidacy of Nikol Pashinyan for prime minister. The chamber voted 45-55 on Mr Pashinian's nomination after a nine-hour-long session on Tuesday.

And so, just as our heroes apparated (read: teleported) to safety, Helena Bonham Carter's devious Death Eater, Bellatrix Lestrange, hurled her knife toward the hapless Dobby, ultimately resulting in the untimely death of Potter's fiercely loyal house elf. Harry eventually came to appreciate the house-elf's help and tricked his master, Lucius Malfoy, into freeing him.

This year, Rowling apologized for killing a character who wasn't in that final battle.
