It's hard not to look at Eric Trump and see someone who's an '80s movie villain. I mean, come on, just take a gander at this mug.
Now, I'm not saying that because you look like an evil person that necessarily makes you an evil person. But when your father is one of the most hated men on the planet and you constantly dress like you're Patrick Bateman with a slicked-back hairdo that screams "mergers and acquisitions," in my opinion, you're kind of asking for it.
Eric and his brother's trademark corporate-sleazeball-look draw a lot of comparisons online.
And people pointed out that the family has some pretty villainous past-times, to boot.
So it only made sense to one Harry Potter fan that they'd be members of the most "villainous" wizarding house in Hogwarts.
Which people seemed to agree with.
However, it only took J.K. about ten minutes to respond and educate her fans why the Trumps wouldn't be in Slytherin at all.
You gotta be worthy of making it into Hogwarts in the first place, and who knows who'd be accepted better than Rowling? No one, that's who.
Though she already has an enormous Twitter following that seems to keep her busy all day long, J.K. Rowling is always ready to light up her mentions with a few controversial tweets. One of her favorite things to do is "apologize" for killing of characters in the Harry Potter series.
Yes, you made us love them, then you took them away. It's what a writer does, but we're still mad. We're still not over Albus Dumbledore's untimely death — and there is no way you read the details of his funeral at Hogwarts and not shed a tear over the pages. So, now the author is taking the time to ask for forgiveness when it comes to the deaths in the seven-book series on a very poignant date, the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, which is celebrated by Potterheads every May 2.
