JK Rowling hits back at fan with the best response EVER

It can't be easy to be inundated with hundreds, if not thousands of fans questions and requests every day. 

Thankfully, it seems to be a part of the job that Harry Potter author JK Rowling truly loves – and we love her for it. 

However, one such fan sent a ripple of annoyance through Twitter today when she told Rowling she couldn't understand how Dumbledore was gay:

"I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a [sic] gay because I can't see him in that way."

It wasn't long before JK came back to the fan with her answer – and proved what a legend she is at the same time:

"Maybe because gay people just look like…people?"

Needless to say, her answer was met with a lot of love and admiration on Twitter. It seems her words were very much taken on board by the fan in question too, who replied writing:

"amazing answer…yes you are absolutely right. Such an inspiration."

Very nicely put, JK – you most certainly are an inspiration.
