Attaching that specific name to this app is red flag in itself and a good reason to stop and take a closer look at your child’s phone or have a timely discussion about anonymous apps.
On Tuesday, a Twitter user told Rowling that they would "burn all of her books and movies," to which Rowling delivered a characteristically 🔥 response.

Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 28, 2017 A "fun" fact to finish with: this isn't the first time that the Harry Potter series has been burned at the stake.
Would you like some thick orange burn-healing paste for that, Twitter user? The following day, someone who claimed to be a fan for 17 years also wrote that they had burned all of her books. Rowling (@jk_rowling) February 1, 2017 These angry tweets are, presumably, responses to Rowling's political beliefs (which she puts out there on social because you've got to find "safe spaces" rant in these trying times, OK?

It was on one of these marathon phone calls that I found out about our junior high’s burn book which had appeared on an anonymous Xanga blog late Friday night, and had, by Sunday, been shared on the Xanga pages of nearly everyone in our class.

When we weren't allowed out of our homes to hang out at a rundown strip mall, I spent my weekends (literally) in the closet of my suburban bedroom, talking to my only friend for hours on the phone.Just one day after news emerged of the book-burnings in the Islamic State’s so-called “caliphate,” the jihadists released a ghastly video exulting in the murder of Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh, who was burned alive in a metal cage.There is something uniquely diabolical about setting books on fire, a lust to obliterate that almost ineluctably leads to even more dreadful evils.My friend read me the first few entries, which, in retrospect, seem relatively tame compared to an average day on Twitter: "'Christie is a goody two-shoes snitch who only cares about soccer and should die.Lexi is a slut who kissed Kyle behind Jennifer’s back.
