People In Brazil Are Tweeting At J.K. Rowling To Find Comfort After Election Of Far-Right Authoritarian—And We Totally Get It

In the recent election in Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro was voted in as President. Many people are feeling despair, as Bolsonaro is often compared to Donald Trump for his strong right-wing leanings. Like Trump, he has also promised to drain the swamp and fight it out with China. And evangelicals and gun-lovers have thrown their support behind the newly-elected Bolsonaro.

Now, people who fear the changes that may come are turning to the beloved novels of the Harry Potter series for strength to get through the dark days. Brazilian people are reaching out to creator J.K. Rowling. 

Our thoughts are with Brazil. Keep fighting the good fight.
