LONDON: A magic shop in Huddersfield has banned Harry Potter fans for not talking magic seriously. Richard Carter, the wand maker, stated that his products were not suitable for muggles, henceforth refusing to sell the magical accessories to the Potter fans, reports The Sun.
57-years-old Carter said his sticks are intended for use in drawing protective circles, warding off evil forces and not just to playfully use it.
“Yu wouldn’t believe how many real witches and wizards there are knocking about. You would be amazed. They know they can come here and reveal themselves without people thinking they’re mental. I don’t have customers who have been Harry Potterfied.
If I had someone come in wanting a wand just because they liked Harry Poter I would not sell them one, no matter how much they were offering,” he said.
Some Potter fans have slammed the decision. Mariella May, a 21-years-old Harry Potter die hard follower, stated: “It is so stupid. It is like McDonald’s refusing to sell happy meals to sad people. They could be selling thousands of wands if they weren’t so snobbish.”
