Hufflepuffs have been victimized for far too long, and Eddie Redmayne has had enough.
In a new public service announcement hosted by MTV, the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actor stands up for Hogwarts’ marginalized house, defending his fellow Hufflepuffs for whom the labels "boring," "beige" and "nice" have become de rigueur.
"Do you know what I see in Hufflepuffs?" the advocate for the fictional Coalition For Better Treatment of Hufflepuffs asks. "I see loyalty. I see fierce friendship. We are hardworking, we are compassionate and at the end of the day, we’re going to do the right thing, and not because of the glory, not because of the glory, but for the greater good. Because (expletive) it!"
"Sorry," he says, composing himself. "It’s naughty to swear. Uh, we do it because that’s what Hufflepuff means."
"Be proud, stand tall," he continues before pointing to illustrious members of the house, including People’s Sexiest Man Alive titleholder, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. "Also, Hufflepuffs are J.K. Rowling’s favorite house so frankly (expletive) you."
