AEW has been in the headlines ever since it emerged on the pro wrestling map in 2019. The Jacksonville-based promotion has a stacked roster of people from different backgrounds.

The @AEWonTV Twitter account recently posted a graphic in celebration of the International Harry Potter Day, The graphic in question shows AEW factions as Harry Potter houses.

Imagine hearing “10 points for The Dark Order!” though

Happy #InternationalHarryPotterDay to all wizards, muggles and everything in between

Fans on social media did not react kindly to the tweet. Many took to Twitter to express their disappointment that AEW would post the graphic of a franchise whose author has been repeatedly called out for her past remarks about the trans community.

J.K. Rowling, the author of the original series of Harry Potter novels, has come under fire in recent years for her comments regarding the trans community. Check out AEW’s tweet below.
