Dobby: Harry Potter fans are trying to free caged house elf

Posted on

Warner Bros. Pictures

Harry Potter fans are the fiercest kind of loyal, so it should surprise no one that upon finding out a statue of beloved house elf Dobby was caged, visitors began protesting by leaving socks near his case. (That’s a nod to the only way to free a house elf — by giving them a piece of clothing.)

Fans began sharing photos of Dobby in the Warner Bros. Studio Leavesden, surrounded by socks — J.K. Rowling retweeted one below — and another Harry Potter devotee posted one from a Paris exhibit.
