After Harry Potter author and resident Twitter Goddess JK Rowling tweeted a message of love and admiration for Ireland's recent gay marriage vote outcome by proposing a marriage between Dumbledore and Gandalf, the Westboro Baptist Church (regarded as the resident cesspool of humanity) challenged her fantastic meme by saying they'd picket any such union:

JK rebutted by saying the WBC wasn't what was important, but rather her show of support for those who need it:
By the way, those above tweets are what Domino's considers an official announcement via their social media channels. Because #brands.
The idea is that you'll be able to register your Twitter handle with your existing Domino's pizza account, at which point you can throw a tweet at the Domino's corporate handle. They'll send you an automated direct message, and then BOOM. Pizza to your door.
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.

Another fan sought inspiration from the author, who provided a few lovely and humbling images that may get you through a future rough day:
D'aww. That cute little sloth makes up for Fred...a little.
