Let’s all hope she isn’t the next flour bomb victim! HungerGames leading lady Jennifer Lawrence tried to make a joke about the animalrights organization PETA and let’s just say it didn’t go over exactly as she hadplanned. During an interview with Rolling Stone, Lawrence tried to make lightof a scene in Winter’s Bone where she skins a squirrel by saying, “I shouldsay it wasn’t real, for PETA. But screw PETA.”
Well, PETA wasn’t too happy about that one, little comment.President Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement, “She’s young and the plight ofanimals somehow hasn’t yet touched her heart. As Henry David Thoreau said, “Thesquirrel you kill in jest, dies in earnest.”
Newkirk continued, “When people kill animals, it is theanimals who are ‘screwed,’ not PETA, and one day I hope she will try to make upfor any pain she might cause any animal who did nothing but try to eke out ahumble existence in nature.”
J-Law hasn’t made a comeback comment yet, but I mean, whatdo you say to that? PETA doesn’t take any situation, comment or fashionstatement lightly and we’re sure Jennifer will most likely think before shemakes another comment like that, just in case!
What do you think about PETA’s reaction? A little too muchor should Jennifer have never made the comment at all? Sound off in the commentsection below!
