As the conversation went on, the pranksters also asked J.K. Rowling if Dumbledore was really gay. The conversation ended on a bit of an awkward note where the comedy duo noted they were writing “Avada Kedavra,” the killing curse in the Harry Potter franchise.

J.K. Rowling’s representative confirmed that the video is real, but added that it had been edited while talking to Hollywood Reporter. Calling it “distasteful,” the representative stated that the author was approached to talk about the charitable work she has been doing to help the people who are currently in Ukraine.
