It's unclear whether she means "hey, sorry, I wish I hadn't killed him" or "hey, what a bummer, it makes me sad too," but JK Rowling has started a new tradition of apologizing for character deaths with the one and only Fred Weasley.  

After an initial tweet said she was sorry about Fred, one fan asked about Tonks and Lupin.  Rowling replied, "I thought I might apologise for one death per anniversary. Fred was the worst for me, so I started with him."  I'll just be sitting here waiting on apologies for Hedwig and Dobby.

D'aww.  That cute little sloth makes up for Fred...a little.
