If you're still in a puddle of tears over the death of beloved house elf Dobby from the "Harry Potter" book series, then you may want to steer clear of J.K. Rowling's Twitter feed.

The author posted a tweet Wednesday morning apologizing to the world for killing off Dobby in the last "Harry Potter" book, as May 2 is the anniversary of the house elf's death. 

Rowling tweeted "This year, I apologise for killing someone who didn't die during the #BattleofHogwarts, but who laid down his life to save the people who'd win it. I refer, of course, to Dobby the house elf."

As any "Harry Potter" super-fan will know, Dobby sacrificed his life by taking a dagger to the chest from evil witch Bellatrix Lestrange. The world collectively cried when Dobby died, and honestly, few have recovered, or forgave Rowling for killing off such a cherished character. Just look at a few of these tweets replying to Rowling. 

 

RIP, Dobby. You're finally free.
