JK Rowling apologizes for killing Dobby on Battle of Hogwarts' 20th Anniversary

JK Rowling apologizes for killing Dobby on Battle of Hogwarts' 20th Anniversary

In honour of all these deaths, writer J. K. Rowling uploads a tweet on her personal Twitter every year as she issues an apology for any one death she had written during the infamous battle. The acclaimed author of the Harry Potter series has even made a tradition out of reaching out to the (still grieving) fans on May 2 to pay tribute to those that died in the Battle of Hogwarts.

The Battle of Hogwarts was the deadly war between Lord Voldemort and his army and Harry Potter and his allies in The Deathly Hallows.

While rescuing - among others - Harry, Hermione, Luna and Ron, Dobby was killed by Bellatrix Lestrange, and was ultimately buried without magic in a grave marked "Here Lies Dobby, A Free Elf". "Dobby is happy to be with his friend, Harry Potter".

And a year ago, she asked fans for their forgiveness for killing off Severus Snape (and not without some trepidation).

May they rest in peace.

Which was your favourite character form the Harry Potter series?

Dobby's death was a shocker - how could she kill such a sweet, sweet little elf?

This year, with the hashtag of #BattleofHogwarts, the authoress apologizes to her followers sincerely for the death of the supporting character "Dobby".

Many fans responded to her apology to express their sadness. It's the day that the Battle of Hogwarts took place. "I am not on a murder spree". Initially, when Dobby was introduced in the second part - Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - he appeared to always create new problems for Potter, but later on, his character went on to be one of the most loyal well-wishers.
