JK Rowling has stepped beyond the comfort of her own Harry Potter universe and is revealing truths about us all thanks to this new meme.
There are a small handful of reasons as to why a celebrity's name would be trending on Twitter. We don't want to be glass half empty with this but let's be honest, it's normally due to them having said or done something awful or, even worse, because they have passed away. That's why Harry Potter fans would have been in a state of panic when JK Rowling's name was trending recently.
Thankfully, the author is not dead, nor has she said or done anything outrageous. Her name unexpectedly trending was actually the work of 9GAG. The meme account asked followers to type "JK Rowling reveals that you" and then let the middle button of their predictive text do the rest. As you might imagine, there were some pretty hilarious results.

Rowling revealed that one user only had "a few days left," scary, and that another was "not going anywhere," also pretty mean. However, our favorite of the ones we have seen so far is the one below revealing that the user is not the only person to doubt that mermaids cannot lactate. Honestly, it's not something we have ever thought about, but now you mention it.

This fun new challenge is based on Rowling constantly revealing weird and wonderful details about the wider Harry Potter universe that were not part of the books. The biggest bombshell dropped so far was that Albus Dumbledore is gay, and he had an intense sexual relationship with Gellert Grindelwald. We would say we didn't ask, but a litany of Harry Potter fans probably did.
Canon: brown eyes, frizzy hair and very clever. White skin was never specified. Rowling loves black Hermione 😘 https://t.co/5fKX4InjTH— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) December 21, 2015
Rowling has made a number of revelations during the time since the franchise's books and movies came to an end. That Hermione might be black, that wizards and witches can potentially perform magic without a wand, and the one that has affected us the most, we have all been pronouncing Voldemort wrong for years. Apparently, the T is silent. We'll just stick to "he who must not be named" from now on to avoid confusion.
