J. K. Rowling, author, philanthropist, and gracious lady of the Twitterverse, will always address a fan theory that pops up and finds her way to her. Take for example her response to this theory that Dumbledore was a time traveler. She dealt with it swiftly with just two words:

Dumbledore, the wizard Potterheads adore — actually an evil wizard?! JK Rowling, help! Please say it isn’t so!
