Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has inadvertently inspired some NSFW memes, after offering new details on Dumbledore's romantic life.
Please Note: Spoilers ahead for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
In a recent interview, Rowling commented on Dumbledore sexual orientation, further confirming the long believed idea that the character was written to be gay. According to Huffpost, on the Blu-ray commentary for the new Harry Potter film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Rowling says that there was a “sexual dimension” to their relationship.
“It was passionate, and it was a love relationship,” Rowling reportedly stated. “But as happens in any relationship, gay or straight or whatever label we want to put on it, one never knows really what the other person is feeling. You can’t know, you can believe you know.”
Ever since Rowling's new comments became public, many social media users have been creating memes out of it, with many using the "No one" format to make jokes.

While many have turned the comments into hilarious memes, some have defended Rowling, with one person clarifying, "since everyone's tweeting about JK Rowling again, i want to point out that what she *actually said* is that she's 'less interested in the sexual side' of Dumbledore & Grindelwald's relationship - something she'd never say about a straight couple."
