J.K. Rowling Says Quidditch Is Complicated Because it 'Is the Human Condition'

J.K. Rowling has responded to allegations that the scoring system of her fictional sport of Quidditch 'makes zero sense.' Responding to claims made by an anonymous Twitter user, Rowling asserted that in fact, the game 'makes total sense,' and likened its complexity to 'the human condition.'

 

"The scoring system of quidditch makes zero sense" asserted the user, whose name is blanked out. Rowling quickly responded, saying "It makes total sense. There's glamour in chasing an elusive lucky break, but teamwork and persistence can still win the day. Everyone's vulnerable to blows of fate and obstructive people, and success means rising above them. Quidditch is the human condition. You're welcome."

 

 

Another enormous claim here from Rowling, whose followers are becoming increasingly polarized over what many claim are her attempts at retrospective inclusivity, and justifications of various controversial aspects of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, including the decision to retain alleged domestic abuser Johnny Depp in the titular role for the second installment, The Crimes of Grindlewald, and the plotline that sees Voldemort's pet snake Nagini revealed as an Asian woman

 

Either way, Rowling's fanbase remain as devoted as ever, of course, and tattoo parlors the world over would do well to prepare for an influx of Potterheads demanding to have 'Quidditch is the human condition' emblazened across their chests.
