The Potter Stinks badges were badges made during the 1994–1995 school year at Hogwarts. When Harry Potter was mysteriously selected to compete in the Triwizard Tournament, many students began wearing badges that flashed between the phrases “Support Cedric Diggory — The Real Hogwarts Champion” in luminous red letters and “Potter Stinks” in glowing green letters. This function was activated by pressing on the badge. Many Slytherins and Hufflepuffs wore the badges prior to The First Task: the Slytherins had a long-standing animosity towards Gryffindor House, but the Hufflepuffs thought that Harry had stolen their glory by rivaling Cedric, and wore the badges to harass him. The Hufflepuffs eased off somewhat once the First Task was over, mostly at Cedric’s request. At one point, Colin and Dennis Creevey attempted to change the badges to say “Support Harry Potter,” but could only manage to get them stuck at “Potter Stinks”, and then eventually “Potter Really Stinks”. credits
