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."
