Harry Potter Trivia Says Wizards Used To Shit Themselves, Fans Respond With Hilarious Jokes

J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books and its future film adaptations have had a huge impact on pop culture. And for good reason. Because it’s one of those rare book and film series that balances intricate character study, massive world-building and mind-blowing action very seamlessly.

However, Rowling’s return, after the end of the original series, hasn’t been as interesting. While the first ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie was warmly received, ‘Crimes of Grindelwald’ has been woefully panned (read my review here). But it turns out that the worst offender is the “digital heart” of the Wizarding World, Pottermore.

For those of you who don’t know what Pottermore is, it’s a website that J.K. Rowling uses to keep the world of Harry Potter alive and expanding through news, articles and various other activities. But her latest attempt has been met with criticism and guffaws.

Well, thank Merlin that they adopted Muggle plumbing methods, or we would’ve to watch an entire franchise where people went still for a moment to poop/piss on themselves and then use an incantation to vanish it.

Considering how this information dump came out of nowhere, Potter fans were quite shocked. Here are some of the reactions:




As a long-term Harry Potter fan, this looks like an inoffensive joke to put a hilarious spin to the fictional world. However, for a fandom that’s been asking for diversity and are getting ham-fisted characters with no real motivations in return, it’s understandable why they can find spending time to come up with “wizards shitting themselves” irksome.
