Finn: ‘What? Really? How do you know?’
Me: ‘Um, well, my phone says she’s dead.’
Me: ‘It’s on……..twitter……’
Finn: ‘You have twitter?’
Me: ‘It’s for work.’
Finn: ‘Isn’t twitter just constant bullshit rumours?’
Me: ‘Yeah….but……it’s on…..it’s on someone’s twitter who I think would know….’
Finn: ‘Did you say Zane Lowe’s twitter?’
Finn: ‘Jesus Christ soph.’
Me: ‘It’s for work’
Finn: ‘Well, just don’t let anyone hear you saying you follow Zane Lowe on twitter. Look where we are. These people will lynch you for less.’

"His breaking point came on the afternoon of September 11, when he was summoned to the office of the editor Rebekah Wade and rebuked for not being "in character". Begley, then 29, was told to appear in full Potter regalia at the next day’s news conference. He parted ways with the paper a few weeks later and is now considering legal action against his former employers. (His initial claim was turned down because he had been on staff for only six months.)
Begley’s account was this week dismissed by Stuart Kuttner, the tabloid’s managing editor, as “deeply flawed”. In a letter to this paper, he said that his former reporter was a “fantasist” and Ms Wade had “made no request” for Begley to “parade as Harry Potter”.

Yeah that’s creepy. BUT IT WAS ALREADY CREEPY.
