On the morning of August 9, 2012, J.K. Rowling tweeted a picture of herself with her father, George, and a young man with a huge red beard.
The image was followed by a series of tweets, in which Rowling talked about how she felt the first year of Hogwarts had been hard, and that she would be spending more time with her son.
“I’ll miss being able to spend more time together with him,” Rowling said in the tweet.
“He’s my best friend, and I’m so proud of him.”
But a few days later, her father posted a series, in a series that read like a wish list for how to live a life of privilege: “If you’ve been to Hogwarts, it’s the greatest place in the world.
It’s a magical, magical place.
I’ve seen it, I’ve read it.
I’m the first person to see it.
There are magical things that happen there.
I have magical friends.”
In another tweet, Rowling wrote that her father had “always been a very good friend.”
“But as you can see, he’s now my biggest fan, and he really wants me to know it,” she continued.
“And that’s what I’m going to do.
I’ll spend more of my time with him, and if I don’t, he won’t be there for me.
So I will take the best part of my life, which is being able, when it’s all said and done, to spend most of my days with him.”
Her father, a self-described “magical person” who has previously had a series-long feud with her mother, Rowling, continued: “He really wants to be there.
And I’ll always be there, and you’re always going to be the one that’s the one who is going to make me feel like the most wonderful person in the whole world.”
At the time, Rowling was working on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which would later be released into the world as J. K. Rowling and the Goblet of Fire.
But the experience of working on the first book of the series, with her parents and her son, left her feeling alone and unfulfilled.
The first book, Harry Potter, had already left Rowling’s life, and she had lost touch with her friends.
She started to feel like an outsider, and, for the first time in her life, she began to wonder if she was a “magnet.”
Rowling has always been known for her unique perspective and, in this case, her willingness to engage in public debates, such as the debate over whether Harry Potter was actually magical.
But she’s also been known to use social media to communicate her views.
In an August 18, 2017 tweet, she wrote, “When you have so many people believing in the magical idea that we live in, you become very dangerous.”
It’s an image that has been repeated countless times, including by Donald Trump.
In July 2018, after Trump criticized the U.S. military for sending two of its soldiers to Afghanistan, Rowling tweeted: “It was a mistake for me to have been there.
It was a great mistake for them.
I wish the soldiers would have been sent.”
In October 2018, she told a news conference that Trump was “not a person I want to go to war with.”
And in November 2018, while she was in Mexico City, she said, “I hope Trump does not win, and his presidency ends with the downfall of the United States.”
On August 9 of this year, Rowling posted another tweet to her 2.3 million followers: “My friends, this is why we need a President who will listen to people.”
“My life is in the hands of my parents, who are going to try to make the most of the time I have,” she said.
In a series titled “My Family and Friends,” she explained that her parents, “really are the people that are the most important to me, and my friends are the biggest influence on me, because they are my family and my people. “
Rowling’s comments came on the heels of a tweet in which she suggested she might have to leave her home if Trump won the election.
In a series titled “My Family and Friends,” she explained that her parents, “really are the people that are the most important to me, and my friends are the biggest influence on me, because they are my family and my people.
But if the world was to become a darker place, and the country became a dictatorship, then that’s going to change my life.
“Rowling’s tweet has since been deleted, but it remains on her Twitter account.
In the aftermath of her tweet, several celebrities and commentators have called out Rowling for her views on racism
