Twitter Reactions: Woman of Color Cast as Hermione in ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Cast

The Harry Potter sequel play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has cast a Ron, Harry and Hermione and the internet is in an uproar.

Is it because Ron doesn’t have red hair? Nope! Is it because wizards aren’t real? Definitely not! It’s because brown-eyed, bushy-haired Hermione is a brown-eyed, bushy-haired woman of color.

Not since J.K. Rowling revealed she ships Harry and Hermione has the internet been so angry — except maybe when the Shadowhunters cast was revealed.

You can find the best Twitter reactions to the news (and the related hubbub) compiled below.
