Rowling was roped in on a Zoom call with Russian comedy duo Vovan and Lexus, whose prank list features high-profile scalps like Kamala Harris and Prince Harry. Rowling thought she was talking to President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The camera was off in the Russian part of the Zoom call. Rowling was expected to talk about her charity work for Ukraine. However, the comedy duo tell him that the Ukrainians were writing “Avda Kedavra” on their missiles, which is the deadliest spell in wizarding.
Rowling said it was a brilliant idea.
From there, it went downhill, as the two asked whether Dumbledore slept with a transgender man, a nod to Rowling’s other big misstep.
