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.
