Jennifer Lawrence Thinks Jokes About Rape Are Funny! Do YOU?

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooJennifer LawrenceCannesVanity Fair

jennifer lawrence makes a rape joke in cannes

Uh oh! Everyone's favorite down-to-earth starlet has had her first screwup!

While at the Cannes Film Festival, Miz Jennifer Lawrence has been living it up, but it seems she made a comment at a party that wasn't supposed to be overheard…

Except — awkward — it was.

She attended the Vanity Fair Cannes party the other day and while there J.Law was overheard making a rape joke when she encountered Gravity director Alfonso Cuarón!

She spotted him, started screaming, then approached him and said:

"I broke out my rape scream for you!"

Eeeeeesssshh! Not the best thing to say, gurl!

We know you're always open and honest in interviews, but COME ON, a rape joke?!?

We're sure she thought that what was said at the party was private, but even still, that's no excuse for a rape joke!!

They're not funny, ever.

Do you think Jennifer Lawrence's comment was over the line?

    If she had said "I broke out my murder scream for you!", does that mean she is making a joke about murder? I think you are really reaching with this one.

    Really, at times this site makes me want to vomit…

    It was not really a joke. She was speaking as an actress stating that the surprise was so strong it was almost like out of a scene. I don't think it was so bad.

    She's a female actress in Hollywood. She likely practiced difference levels of screams, just encase she ever got offered a roll in a slasher flick. Lucky for her it was a needless effort.

    Perez, you inundate this site with Kardashian stories (frankly, you seem obsessed with them)… And yet, you find JLaw's joke tasteless. That's where you draw the line concerning tastelessness?

    Perez now you're paying people to listen in on their private conversations, shame on you….I can imagine the sh$t conversations you have, how would you like thoughs aired out?

    I'm wondering if there'd be as many people saying "No big deal" if any other celeb said this and not Jennifer Lawrence. It seems she gets a free pass a lot, even with a serious topic like this. Rape is not something you should a joke about. I have family members who were sexually assaulted and making jokes like this is just low.

    As we all know, Perez Hilton has never done or said anything inappropriate in public or in private. He's perfect! LOLLL!!!! Grasping at straws with a side order of major hypocrisy.

    As a survivor of sexual assault, I'm horrified that anyone would think her "joke" was "no big deal". Rape is not something to joke about. Ever.

    She looks so thin in that pic! She's always saying how she's considered overweight in Hollywood and talks about how hungry she always is.

    Re: Ashley

    Honey I have been raped before as well, want to know how I got over the stigma and moved on with my life it was by making fun of the worst experience of my life which helped me overcome it, I still joke about it to close friends as it puts me at ease like going out on girls night and walking to the car I can joke so it gives me the strength to do such things again. This girl said it in jest to close friends and was overheard so who knows exactly what and how it was said, I am sure she doesn't endorse rape culture.

    The alleged comment was overheard?…so, at this point it's HEARSAY. Besides, if it actually ocurred, then why didn't Jada Yuan who wrote the Vulture article in the first place call Jennifer Lawrence out on it right there and then? or, at least address it critically in the article.

    It's also curious to me that Richard Lawson who was also at the very same party as Yuan (standing RIGHT NEXT TO Jennifer Lawrence) when she greeted Cuaron has NOT written anything about her making the comment at all. If Lawson had heard it, he would have. This is what they call a FAKE SCANDAL. X-Men hits theaters in a couple days, Jennifer Lawrence is a very popular, talented actress who is also well liked…it's a very poor attempt at creating a scandal.

    Re: Sam – I totally agree, everything the Kardashian's do for money is far more tasteless and gross then a dumb comment. Besides, this was obviously a comment meant to be said in private not public, and frankly I don't think this is a very big deal. As someone who has been raped, I find rape jokes to never be funny and I agree they shouldn't be said. But I think this was taken way out of context, not to mention you can't even prove she actually said that. I think this story was a waste of space, just like that Kardashian's.

    It's interesting to me how so many commenters on this story are ignoring the very content of it and instead bitching on Perez for posting it in the first place. New flash: he's not the only one! I've seen this story on several news sites today. Who knows what the source is? He's just posting it, like everyone else. That's not what the focus of this should be. Maybe actually concentrate on what is being said? - i.e jokes about rape - and not the why/how/where/what of the poster/posting? Just an idea.

    im surprised how many rape victims read perez hilton's site. also, rape jokes are nearly always funny. its just a matter of taste and preference. i love a good rape joke.

  22. Sophie says – reply to this

    Shame on you perez hilton. First of all, u dont even know if she really said that, and second of all, the title of this story, doesnt even fit the story itself. I would be suprised if she sued u for slander for even accusing her of that. Ur disgusting.

    Shame on you for the title "Jennifer Lawrence Thinks Jokes About Rape Are Funny!" IT IS A LIE, loud and clear. Has Jennifer Lawrence ever said rape jokes are funny? Nope. Come on, English is my 3rd language and even I get this, you guys must be really desperate to get people read your "articles".

    Re: lisa – so because she likes directors that make good movies, that makes her a bad person? Damn I must be a terrible person for liking multiple directors! And if I wanted to get hired by someone I too would try and sound excited to meet them or at least work with them. Duh!

    WTF??? Why would she say that and i'm so tired of people saying she is so talented at acting like Meyrll Streep because she is NO WHERE near Meyrll Streep's acting ability. And RAPE JOKES are NEVER okay. People's life are ruined because of rape. They become scarred for life and get diseases and have babies without knowing the father. I DONT Care how famous she is but, now I dislike her even more. I just though she was an overrated actress but now I dislike her. AND PEOPLE SHOULD STOP THINKING SHE IS SO GOOD AT ACTING BECAUSE I HAVE NO IDEAD WHY SHE WAS NOMINATED FOR AMERICAN HUSTLE WHEN HER PERFORMANCE WAS ONE OF THE WEAKEST PERFORMANCE. And I still don't know why she was nominated for Winter's Bone. And Jessica Chastain deserve that Oscar that Jennifer Lawerence took home.

    Fuck off Perez. You've treated people like shit over the years and have no right to stand as a moral high ground to ANYBODY.

    I like you Perez, I think you're a better dude than you get credit for, but fuck off with this shit.

    lol, I love how all of you defend her



  30. 30

    I don't think that qualifies as a rape joke; it was just a thoughtless off the cuff remark about her scream and it certainly doesn't justify your comment that she thinks rape jokes are funny.

  31. Cina says – reply to this

    I was raped when I was in college, and yes, it was a horrible experience but I'm not offended by what J-Law said. I honestly doubt she thinks rape is funny. Come on now…this article is a reach. Overrreaction.

    I find it funny that this was just called her "first screwup." Like, what? A screwup is when you get caught doing drugs or leak a sex tape or something. Why is this even an article?

  34. ES88 says – reply to this


    34

    Overheard? That isn't very reliable, is it? Maybe she meant a "grape scream" (a special form of scream let out while squashing grapes in french vineyards) or a "tape scream" (screams let out in frustration while trying to find the end of a clear scotch tape) or an "ape scream" (self explanatory). Sorry to say Perez, but you have been Lawyered.

  35. Will says – reply to this


    35

    Overheard. Interesting so who knows what was said. Even if she did say it, it was just a bad choice of word to emote to the director why she was screaming at him. The title of this article is the joke, she does not think rape is funny, no one does. And I noticed how you changed the title from this morning to get more traffic to the site, nice Perez you never cease to show your true colors.

    I think it reveals her dizziness and the fact that the whole "quirky, real, ditzy funny girl" act has gotten to her head. I think she's a lot more calculating than she appears, but just as stupid.

    this is so fucked. never did jen EVER say she thought jokes about rape were funny, and the real sad part of this post is the plain fact that their had to be a post about it ! about something that didn't even happen, and these people are making it seem worse than it needs to be, by not even taking seriously what rape is.

    Oh come on! Are we really a world of such weak and sensitive people! If it was an actual rape joke then fair play, bad taste, say sorry and be more careful. But simply the using the word in a joke, get over it!! If there are people out there that actual get bothered by all this PC cr*p (and I'm talking about things other than rape here, race, sexuality, gender etc…) then they can p*ss off as they're a problem, Ive got no time for weak blubbery people, grow a pair and learn to function in society without breaking down and whining every 5 mins! This was not a rape joke stop being silly.

    sorry but she didn't have to say "rape scream" like wtf, thats really not the first thing that i think anyone would spit out of their mouth, " rape scream" is not even a common phrase so it kinda is the wrong usage of words that she used, using the word rape before it was just unnecessary to describe how she felt after being starstruck by a famous director. even if that was intended to be funny, i don't find it laughable not because of the rape thing but because it is actually not funny, not even a bit "chuckleable". everyone thinks every word that comes out of her mouth is so adorable and funny, i just see her as a try hard that needs to keep up with the one liner humor all the time just so she can keep looking "cute and down to earth" and win the hearts of all of hollywood elite and the world, its kinda sickening if she really does keep this PR image up. kristen stewart may not be a good actress at all and i never cared to watch the twilight films but i kinda miss her era of franchise fame as opposed to the jennifer lawrence era, at least she wasn't the constant ass kisser and wasn't obnoxious in her interviews or did stupid PR "falls" or make faces on the red carpet or says she eats solid foods to act like she's different from the rest of hollywood - kristen kept to herself, stayed true to herself, didn't care about any image to keep up with, and actually seems chill now that i look back on her years of fame.

    This is so typical. Even if she screws up, it's apparently okay. As I read some comments here, I can see the fanboys have crawled up in her ass. What's next? Jokes about the Holocaust which will be tollerated?

    Good Lord. If there's anyone prostituting themselves for fame and attention it's Perez Hilton grasping at straws just to be able to stand in the shadow of JLaw. Really?

    Cmon, there's a movie made called "Scream" which is a semi comedy shock entertainment flick that people didn't blink an eye at. In other words, you're a great actress if you know how to let a good scream out if your head is being cut off by a chain saw. If she had put it into that context, no-one…almost no-one would bat an eyelash….INCLUDING Paris Hilton! A sensitive subject? Of course…in the right context, rape is a travesty and embarrassment to mankind. But how is it that it's funny to laugh over the brutality of these murder movies with no thought or sensitivity to the many victims out there who have been tortured or murdered??? She's a young girl, she works in a film industry where anything goes as long as people buy tickets. It's next to impossible to fathom that she believes rape is a joke…especially as a woman. I see this article as nothing more than CHEAP journalism and a desperate grasp to stay popular and relevant when fame is so hard to come by and even harder to maintain. The true "wh*re here prostituting themself for fame is Perez Hilton. What a CHEAP and utter selling of their soul just to get a story. I bet they laughed all the way through the movie scream and chomped on their popcorn with perverted delight. Very low…very low

    This ridiculously misleading headline is exactly why this site needs to burn in flames. That you use your site and its popularity to knowingly spread stories contoured to your explosive & scandalous needs is simply disgusting. For every good, relevant story you publish, there are 5 that are rubbish like this… sigh… I dunno why I keep coming back. Masochist at heart I guess. : /

    Why is it okay for movies to make such jokes, but the same actress says it in person, and gets public outrage? I can think of rape jokes in Step Brothers and Super Bad, both of which were a huge box office success. People are such hypocrites.

    Re: Onyxescence
    Your comment makes the most sense, doubt very much she will have meant to joke about it, she has stated many times she doesn't have a filter when she speaks which sounds like pretty much everyone arond her age, if it was a normal person who said this she would get a few bad looks and that would be it done, and just to throw in if you believe everything you read on the internet you're a bigger idiot than people who make racist jokes.
