J.K. Rowling just coined a Harry Potter version of 'splaining' and it's A+

Is there a word for the scenario where someone tries to explain the meaning of your own book to you?

Well, there is now. J.K. Rowling's just invented it.

It started on Tuesday night, when someone on Twitter attempted to compare Trump to Snape. Rowling wasn't having any of it, though.

Five minutes later, a new word was born.

Don’t you just love it when people tell you what your books mean?

"Snapesplaining." It's definitely got a ring to it.

Soon people were coming up with new words all over the place.

I hate Snapegoats.

Get these added to the dictionary, stat.

And in the meantime, stop trying to Snapesplain J.K. Rowling's books.
