Daniel Radcliffe appeared on Payaat News’ morning show AM to DM Thursday to promote his upcoming TV series Miracle Workers, but the show’s host, Isaac Fitzgerald, couldn’t let the former Harry Potter star leave before pressing him on one of the Wizarding World’s most perplexing details: how witches and wizards get rid of their poop.
During a game of “Radcliffe or Badcliffe,” the star was asked a series of questions about things that he could express his opinion on, categorizing them as either rad or bad — and he was extremely candid. For example, he doesn’t really care much for Maroon 5’s music, though he said he could “secretly love them” and just doesn’t know it yet
Fitzgerald asked Radcliffe about a recent tweet from the website Pottermore — which includes a treasure trove of lesser-known Harry Potter facts — about how wizards just “relieved themselves wherever they stood, and vanished the evidence” prior to adopting “Muggle plumbing methods.”
Online reaction to the tweet, which went viral in early January, was anything but enthusiastic.
“jk rowling i will literally pay you to stop writing,” said one person.
