J.K. Rowling Fires Back At Homophobic Twitter Critic Who Attacked Her For Revealing Dumbledore Was Gay

Rowling3

When J.K. Rowling writes something, people pay attention - especially if that happens to involve her taking down a homophobic Twitter "ex-fan" who criticized her for revealing beloved school headmaster Albus Dumbledore was gay. 

Tweeted user @halfelven55ff (who has since taken down his Twitter page):

Once u revealed Dumbledore was homosexual I stopped being a fan. Nice how u blindsided us with that one. Enjoy your billion $

Responded Rowling:

The Independent reports Rowling was referring to a man who funded a campaign in 2000 pressuring the Scottish parliament to keep Section 2A of the Local Government Act on the books - the act that made it so local governments "shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality" or "promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship."

AFTER THE JUMP, check out an interview Rowling did last year to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the first Harry Potter novel and why Dumbledore is the character she misses the most.

Big Brother 13 Contestant Jeff Schroeder Unleashes Homophobic Rant Over Dumbledore: VIDEO

Big Brother 13 contestants Jeff and Kalia got in an argument on the live feed over the fact that J.K. Rowling wrote Dumbledore as a gay character. Jeff believes that Dumbledore couldn't be gay because it's wrong for gays to be around little kids.

ONTD provides a semi-transcript:

Jeff says "Who's Dumbledorf.. who is that, the big guy?".. Rachel then says "why would she want a gay character?" while Jeff in the background says "That would be perverted!" Kalia explains that she made the character so that her kids and other kids would understand homosexuality.

Jeff says "how is he meant to be gay? he doesn't have any gay tendencies..." Kalia interrupts and says "maybe that's the point! so that people like you don't stereotype gay people".

Jeff says "WHAT DO YOU mean stereotypes around gay people? He's in a school with little kids, you can't make THAT GUY GAY!"

Kalia squeeled "WHYYYY? Gay men can't work with little kids!?"

Jeff says "it isn't right to have it in a little kids book, and have the head master locked away in this magical land, be gay. That isn't the right kind of writing to do."

Kalia doesn't see anything wrong with it. "I don't see why not!"

Jeff says "Oh I can see your PC view of it, but it's not the right thing to do..." she asks him "WHY is it PC?"

Jeff says to her "Listen, you know what I'm talking about and don't make it seem like your doing the right thing by saying it's not! You are going to let your kids read a story book where little kids go to fantasy camp without their parents and the guy is GAY?"

Kalia: "Just because he is gay, doesn't mean there is a thing wrong with him!"

Jeff: "GTFO! Don't start with that f'in *****!" While Kalia is trying to defend herself, Jeff is yelling louder "Don't tell me the right answer for f'n T.V.!..."

It's not the first time Jeff, a returning housemate, has shown that he's a homophobe on the show. Some of you may recall that he called Russell a "fag" in Big Brother 11, later saying, “F**k you, you f**king homo faggot”.

Daniel Radcliffe Amused He's Got a 'Gay Face'

Radcliffe

In an interview with Moviefone, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe demonstrates yet again what an evolved lad he is when asked about Dumbledore's status as a gay wizard icon:

"It's wonderful. I grew up around gay people my entire life, basically, that's possibly why I'm quite camp, and some people think I'm gay when I meet them, which I think is awesome. It's always good to keep them guessing [laughs]. I don't go on any blogs or chats or anything, but my friends are demons for them, and apparently someone said 'Daniel Radcliffe is gay. He's got a gay face!' [Laughs] I really don't know what a gay face is. But I think it's wonderful that Dumbledore was outed as gay ... Half of me thinks Jo Rowling just did that to see if she could piss off the right wing, but I'm not sure how true that is. I think she had it planned, I think she always knew he was gay."

Barack Obama Likes Dumbledore, But Offers Him His Privacy

Back in January, Obama got some attention when he revealed how much he loved HBO's The Wire, and that his favorite character was Omar:

Dumbledore"I gotta say Omar’s a great character. That’s not an endorsement. That is not an endorsement. He is not my favorite person. But he’s a fascinating character. He’s this gay gangster who only robs drug dealers, and then gives back. You know, he’s sort of a Robin Hood. And he’s the toughest, baddest guy on this show, but he’s gay, you know. And it’s really interesting. It’s a fascinating character."

Now, in a new interview about his kids, Obama reveals his fondness for another gay character, though this time around he's not so open to talking about the character's sexuality:

"His favorite Harry Potter character may be Dumbledore (he won’t comment when it’s mentioned that the headmaster of Hogwarts may be gay.)"
