J.K. Rowling Says We’ve Been Pronouncing ‘Voldemort’ Wrong For Years

I guess not saying aloud the "he who shall not me named..." uhhh name has caught up to us.

According to J.K. Rowling fans, directors and actors have been dropping the ball in regards to the proper pronunciation of Voldemort.
So is that why he never pops up in my... ehhh never mind.
The fun started with a random tweet from a fan on social media.
"@Universe_Box One piece of Harry Potter trivia I always forget to mention: the "t" is silent in Voldemort, according to @jk_rowling." said a fan on twitter.
Rowling hopped in immmediately to verify this as fact.

"... but I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who pronounces it that way," said Rowling.

My god, we have been dropping the ball on this one for over a decade! I can't believe Rowling has let this pass for so long.

JK Rowling needs to cut this editorializing shit out. If this was real she'd have said something with the first movie, or the second. She's just bored now.
