JK Rowling Just Confirmed This Theory About Dumbledore Isn't True

Warner Bros.

Pro tip to all my "Harry Potter" fans out there: Do not tweet your crazy fan theories to JK Rowling because she will shoot you down, and it will be brutal.

Apparently, there was this theory going around that the late, beloved headmaster of Hogwarts, Professor Albus Dumbledore, actually created a Horcrux out of his pet phoenix, Fawkes.

Now since you're reading this article, I'm going to assume you know the implications of this theory. Horcruxes involve pretty much the most evil magic out there, because you have to murder someone to create one.

To be fair, the theory speculates Dumbledore created the Horcrux out of grief after accidentally killing his sister, but still.

So, when Simon Zerafa tweeted the theory at JK Rowling Wednesday morning, Jo was not having it.

So there you have it, folks, from JK herself!

This theory is 100 percent false, and you're all upsetting your queen by believing in this blasphemy.

I mean c'mon, you guys, it's DUMBLEDORE. Ya homeboy Albus would NEVER make a Horcrux. Have a little faith!

As Simon says, Jo has spoken, and her word is magical law.

I don't want to hear any more of these nonsense theories about my beloved "Harry Potter" from you kids from now on, ya hear?
