In the books we learned that Nagini is from Albania, but then we got to see Claudia Kim, a south korean actress, play Nagini in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", so, fans were a little confused. To answer this, Rowling tweeted: "The Naga are snake-like mythical creatures of Indonesian mythology, hence the name ‘Nagini.’ They are sometimes depicted as winged, sometimes as half-human, half-snake. Indonesia comprises a few hundred ethnic groups, including Javanese, Chinese and Betawi. Have a lovely day."
2. Black Hermione.

A lot of people didn't like that in the "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" play, Hermione is a black woman. There were a lot of racist comments and fans saying that in the books Hermione was white. To clear everything up, JK said about the description of Hermione in the books was: "Canon: brown eyes, frizzy hair and very clever. White skin was never specified. Rowling loves black Hermione."
4. Dumbledore's sexuality.
In 2015 JK revealed that Dumbledore was gay but she just didn't mention it in the books. The controversy grew when fans learned that Dumbledore wouldn't be openly gay in the new "Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them" series. JK recieved a lot of letter from angry fans, to which she responded: "Being sent abuse about an interview that didn't involve me, about a screenplay I wrote but which none of the angry people have read, which is part of a five-movie series that's only one instalment in, is obviously tons of fun, but you know what's even *more* fun?"
