Over on her Twitter page, the famed writer jumped on to answer a fan question about what wizards can wear after a marathon writing session. Twitter user, @TorHakushun, asked:
Seems very cut and dry. Wizards shouldn't wear bow ties. However, the feedback Rowling received was less than positive as many Twitter users (and apparent "Doctor Who" fans) took offense to her choice of style.
That last Tweet features Eddie Redmayne as "Newt Scamander," the main character from Rowling's new, wizarding movie franchise, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." Someone else pointed out that Scamander was not the only wizard to wear a bow tie on film, though.
But Rowling had a response and explanation for that as well, elaborating on what type of person she believes would wear a bow tie during the daytime.
While some followers were freaking out about the possibility of Tucker Carlson, a Fox News correspondent and frequent Trump supporter, being a wizard, that's where Rowling decided to leave the conversation.
Rowling's probably discovered she should focus on writing instead of angering #BowTieTwitter.
I come in here for five minutes after six hours solid rewriting and I get sucked into a bow tie controversy of my own making. That'll teach me.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 11, 2018
