‘X-Men’, ‘Hunger Games’ star Jennifer Lawrence: ‘Screw PETA’

Jennifer Lawrence, the star of the number one movie in America, “The Hunger Games”, has ignited some controversy while discussing the hunting scenes in this week’s Rolling Stone.

The “X-Men:First Class” actress spoke about killing a squirrel in “Games, then offered a non-flattering comment for PETA, the animal rights organization.

“I should say it wasn’t real, for PETA — but screw PETA,” joked Lawrence

PETA’s President Ingrid Newkirk responded, which was reported by E! News:

“She’s young and the plight of animals somehow hasn’t yet touched her heart. As Henry David Thoreau said, ‘The squirrel you kill in jest, dies in earnest.’ When people kill animals, it is the animals who are ‘screwed,’ not PETA, and one day I hope she will try to make up for any pain she might cause any animal who did nothing but try to eke out a humble existence in nature.”

PETA’s statement continued, optimistic that Lawrence will be more PETA friendly in the future:

“That was just a throw-away remark and we have our bet on Jennifer ending up joining the ranks of other young celebrities like Natalie Portman, Lea Michele, and Kellan Lutz, who are using their influence to help animal.”
