No, Harambe is not a Patronus


Pottermore.com, the "digital heart of the Wizarding World," launched a new quiz yesterday, helping Potterheads to uncover what their Patronus would be. 

(Translating for muggles: A Patronus is a type of magical guardian that takes the form of an animal.)

As people shared their results, it wasn't long until rumors about a certain gorilla started to spread. 

"Too soon"? Maybe.

J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, dispelled the rumor.

She's down with #Harambe.

Some celebrated their results. Others, not so much.

How does this lead to an "existential crisis"? And why does everyone misspell Patronus?

Rats are #actually sensitive, caring creatures.

Same for pigs, they're very nice in person. And delicious!

Yes, you do have to stay and pretend you care.

What do you think? Are you happy with your results?
