J.K. Rowling Reveals How Voldemort is Supposed to Be Pronounced and Blows Our Muggle Minds
Oh, for the love of Slytherin.
J.K. Rowling has used her Internet wizardry to drop all kinds of Harry Potter bombshells on her readers, and now the 50-year-old author is at it again, tweeting on Thursday that not only is Voldemort "He Who Must Not Be Named," but also that we haven't even been pronouncing his name correctly!
In response to a tweet claiming that the correct way to say "Voldemort" is with a silent "T" at the end, Rowling wrote, "... but I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who pronounces it that way."

You can't be Sirius right now! Is esteemed writer J.K. Rowling throwing shade at how we collectively pronounce the last name of the most evil wizard to ever live?
The other thing is, we can't stop saying it now. Voldemore.. Voldemoor.... Vole-de-moar....

MAKE IT STOP!
While this Tom Riddle has our brains hurting, Rowling's Twitter conversation did lead to one amazing idea: changing Dumbledore to Trumpeldorf.
