J.K. Rowling might be wishing she made up a Harry Potter spell for deleting someone else's tweet.

Despite the author's ongoing efforts to retroactively make the Harry Potter books more woke, people on Twitter are discussing the apparent cultural stereotypes in her characters' names.

New York Times reporter Astead Wesley tweeted about Rowling's naming process, and it went viral:
