Dad Tricks Daughter Into Thinking She Got Into Hogwarts On April Fools'


Full disclosure: When I was a kid, I was obsessed with "Harry Potter."

I wanted nothing more than to get into Hogwarts.

I even had a Harry pillow I kissed every night because I was convinced he was in love with me.

I was a weird kid.

That said, I really feel for the victim of this cruel April Fools' prank. I'd be emotionally scarred, too.

When she was 7 years old, Ellabell's father penned her a fake Hogwarts acceptance letter -- and, as she wrote on Twitter, she "FULLY BELIEVED" she had been accepted.

When she found out it was a (cruel) farce, she cried for days -- and her evil dad, each year, reminds her of the truly awful prank.

If it were me, dad would have to watch his back.
