J.K. Rowling doesn’t shy away from politics: she’s been outspoken about Scottish independence and gay rights, among many other topics. On Monday, she inadvertently edged into American politics when a fan asked on Twitter what Moaning Myrtle’s full name was. Rowling’s reply: “Moaning Myrtle’s full name was Myrtle Elizabeth Warren.”
But after the tweet went viral, Rowling said it was not meant to be a statement of any kind.
