While Twitter exploded with a positive outpour about her powerful message,some fans said that they wished that she had made mention of the students and the different religions — that she also revealed to be included in the population at Hogwarts — in the actual books.
It’s nice that JK is confirming Jewish/LGBT students are at Hogwarts & all but you know what would’ve been cooler mentioning it IN the books

Boy oh boy would I give a shit about JK Rowling’s thoughts on LGBT students at Hogwarts HAD SHE WRITTEN ANY OF THAT INTO THE BOOKS.
