Twitter Wants to See These Fictional Characters Dead and … Same

Die, Umbridge. DIE.

Dolores Umbridge played by Imelda Staunton in Harry Potter

Fictional characters have quite a power over us, and that means that, as many as we absolutely love, there are definitely some that we hate so much that we wouldn’t mind seeing them dead. They’re fictional; it’s fine.

So when one Twitter user asked what character we’d want to see dead and have them stay dead, we all decided to put our own thoughts out into the universe, just in case.

It began with Sara Benincasa tweeting this:

When the tweets began to come in, one thing was clear: We all had a lot of characters we cannot stand. One of them was Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games.

Others expressed their hatred of the villains from our fairytales.

And, of course, Joffrey Baratheon made an appearance.

One that really is surprising is the fact that, in all of literary history, someone wants Thing One and Thing Two dead first.

Many people want to see death come knocking on the door of some of our classics, like Holden Caulfield.

Even Daisy Buchanan wasn’t free from scrutiny.

Personally, I’d like to see death come to one woman in particular.

The Harry Potter series had quite a lot of responses, some more inventive than others.

But, at the end of the day, if we had the option, we should have killed Jar Jar Binks a long, long time ago.

And like, why not just take out Thomas Wayne over and over again for the hell of it?
